According to legend, the Duke of York’s influence is so great that solicitor Gary Bloxsome found himself in an exclusive ‘inner circle of one.’
Even yet, no one could have imagined that Prince Andrew would insist on accompanying Mr Bloxsome to the Queen’s meeting, which took place yesterday.
The Mail can reveal that Mr Bloxsome, 48, followed the prince as he was driven from his Royal Lodge estate in Windsor Great Park to Windsor Castle, where he would see his 95-year-old mother, Princess Elizabeth.
Mr Bloxsome’s involvement may imply that the prince was aware of the gravity of the unprecedented royal conflict and that he had sought legal guidance on the matter. Alternatively, Mr Bloxsome may have been present with the intention of assisting Andrew in explaining to Her Majesty the intrigues of his New York sex case.
Nevertheless, it is believed that he was finally denied admission to the castle and was instead forced to wait outside in the car park for the duration of the 90-minute meeting.
According to reports, the lawyer, who works for the London legal firm Blackfords, has earned the nickname ‘Good News Gary’ from his critics for his insistence on only presenting the prince with the best-case scenario.
Andrew’s former private secretary Amanda Thirsk opted to resign in 2020 after being obliged to stand down from royal duties due to his association with Jeffrey Epstein, and he is now widely considered to be the prince’s closest adviser.
