The fact that Simon Bowes-Lyon takes his act was decisive in obtaining this light sentence « Last year I sought professional help as quickly as possible and agreed to plead guilty as soon as possible », admitted the queen’s cousin If Elizabeth II can turn the page of this unpleasant episode, she must however continue to manage behind the scenes the accusations of sexual assault on a minor which target her son Prince Andrew, former friend of the American sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein
