“Scandals and the Royal Family”

Once upon a time everyone loved them, everyone wanted to be one, and everyone longed for even the smallest glance or wave from them. Many things throughout history have shaken our faith in the Royal Family. Many questions asked but very few answered, and even then the answered ones always seemed a bit sketchy. Are they really better? Are they flawed just like us? Is it possible? Have they really fallen as low as the peasants, as us? Throughout history they were untouchable but now small tidbits of information shed scandalous flickers of light on half-truths or are they full truths? We’ll leave that for you to decide. Did the Royal Family murder Princess ...view middle of the document...

Why, you ask? Why would the House of Windsor, want to murder the Princess. It’s possible that she was pregnant with a Muslim child, which would sully the honour of the Royal House. Also, the heirs to the throne, her children, would have an Islamic stepfather, and that just seems a little too close for comfort for some extremists. Most distressing of all, is that she, in the eyes of the Royals, was bringing embarrassment to the noble house.
Eighteen eighty eight, the Whitechapel district of London, a minimum of five savage murders were perpetrated betwixt the months of August and November. Although an impoverished and violent place, all the crimes can be linked because of the same methods or procedures taken by the killer. All took place within a few streets, either early morning or late night, all were women and four of the five were slaughtered like animals. At least three victims had internal organs removed leading to the belief that some degree of anatomical knowledge was possessed and maybe indicating that the culprit was either a surgeon of butcher. Scotland Yard and the media were pummelled by letters claiming to be from the killer dubbed “Jack the Ripper”; most were dismissed except for one labelled “From Hell” after a phrase taken from within. It came with a box containing a piece of human kidney, although it was never proven to have come from one of the victims. Despite a thorough investigation, the demon was never caught. Dr. Thomas Stowell, an English surgeon, published a November 1970 edition of The Criminologist, an article entitled "Jack the Ripper – A Solution?” Stowell surmised that “Jack” was a blue blooded noble, who had contracted syphilis and been driven insane and in that warped frame of mind had inflicted the diabolical Jack the Ripper murders. Although not being named directly, the suspect, his nicknames, and his family were all described in great detail. All of this pointed to the Duke of Clarence and Avondale, Prince Albert Victor, The Queen’s grandson. Following the double homicide, Stowell penned, the alleged nobleman was subdued by his own family and institutionalized is the south of the country before escaping to commit the final slaying of Mary Jane Kelly and then anti-climatically dying of the disease. As evidence, the good doctor drew comparisons between the disembowelment of deer bought down by the aristocracy and the evisceration of the Ripper victims. Stowell claimed his knowledge came from the private files of Sir William Gull, an eminent physician, known for treating member of the Royal Family. Gull’s Son-in-law, Theodore Dyke Akland, was known to Stowell, and was an estate executor of Akland’s. A few days later, Stowell wrote to the Times, refuting any intention of insinuating the Prince Albert Victor was Jack the Ripper. Four days...
