Letters exchanged between Prince Charles and paedophile Jimmy Savile are being exposed in a Netflix documentary.

 

Prince Charles would occasionally get in contact with the disgraced former BBC presenter, who used his role, charity and hospital work as a cover for his heinous predatory behaviour

Savile was 84 when he died in 2011 and was only exposed as a paedophile after dying with many victims coming forward sharing their stories.

In the new documentary, Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story, the letters exchanged by Prince Charles and Saville between 1986 and 2006 have been exposed.

The letters reveal that Charles regularly wrote to Savile for advice – described as a “handbook” for the royals.

One of the first letters dated January 14, 1987, came from Charles, reading: “Perhaps I am wrong, but you are the bloke who knows what’s going on.

“What I really need is a list of suggestions from you. I so want to get to parts of the country that others don’t get to reach.”

Another letter written by the Prince of Wales in the ’90s shows him praising Savile for understanding the public.

“You are so good at understanding what makes people operate. Can you cast an eye over this draft and let me know how we can best appeal to people on this score?” it read.

Following Savile’s help, Charles once again penned another letter thanking him for his help.

“It really was extremely good of you to take the trouble to put together those splendid notes and they provided me with considerable food for thought. With renewed and heartfelt thanks. Yours ever, Charles.”

Charles sent another letter following the devastating Lockerbie bombing, when a passenger flight operated by Pan Am exploded over the Scottish city on December 21, 1988.

All 259 people on board were killed including 11 people on the ground.

Savile suggested that “an incident room” with “several independent phone lines” should be set up following the bombing.

“I attach a copy of my memo on disasters which incorporates your points and which I showed to my father. He showed it to HM [Her Majesty],” Charles wrote in the letter.
