By Lucky Uwakina (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Queen’s cousin, 78, was filmed in a Zoom meeting where undercover reporters posing as clients from South Korea were told he could be hired for £10,000 a day to make ‘confidential’ representations in Moscow.
Journalists from Channel 4 Dispatches and The Sunday Times were investigating allegations that Prince Michael and his close friend the Marquess of Reading were selling their links to the Russian regime. Prince Michael said he would be ‘very excited’ to work with the fictitious ‘House of Haedong’ – which said it wanted to further its business in Russia by making links with Putin’s inner circle.
Prince Michael, a grandson of King George V, allegedly said he would give the ‘House of Haedong’ his endorsement for a $200,000 fee. He added his relationship with the state could ‘bring some benefit,’ after thanking the faux company for their ‘very generous’ financial offer.
Earlier, it is alleged his secretary told the undercover reporters that Prince Michael could make introductions to people high up in the Kremlin
