Prebendary Willie Booth and Jimmy Savile introduced paedophile Peter Ball to the royal circle.

“He was propelled into the royal circle by two people, I understand. One was prebendary Willie Booth, a former chaplain at Westminster School… The other was Jimmy Savile.

The Old Bailey heard on Wed­nes­day that a member of the Royal Family, a Lord Chief Justice, and several MPs all called the police while they were investigating Bishop Ball to support him.

Ex-cop claims a ROYAL was in paedophile ring but inquiry was closed to shield Buckingham Palace from scandal.

Jimmy Savile and Prince Charles’ very close friendship with sex abuse bishop Peter Ball

Jimmy Savile and Prince Charles’ very close friendship with sex abuse bishop Peter Ball

Peter Ball… was propelled into the royal circle by two people… One was prebendary Willie Booth, a former chaplain at Westminster School, who’d taken over from Caesar. The other was Jimmy Savile.

Ball’s royal friendships were not confined to the Prince of Wales.

Ball was on close terms with the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret, and was invited to preach at Sandringham.

Even the Queen supported him after his police caution. In 1994, when she was distributing Royal Maundy money in Truro, Ball was there with his brother, who was Truro’s bishop.

After lunch in the Chapter House, the Queen, who had been on the high table with local dignitaries, went across to Ball, held out her hand and said in the clearest of voices: ‘My love and encouragement, Bishop.’

Charles, meanwhile, must surely have been advised to keep Ball at arm’s length — just as he had been advised to distance himself from Jimmy Savile.

The Prince did receive letters from the public complaining about Savile,’ says a senior aide.

29 Nov 1998
THE mother of a trainee monk who was sexually-abused by a Bishop has slammed Prince Charles for giving refuge to the perverted priest.

Angry Mary Todd said: “This man ruined my son’s life. He is pure evil, a beast, and he’s hiding behind God.”

Despite being an old friend of Prince Charles, Princess Diana banned him from visiting their Highgrove home after the 1993 sex scandal. 

 Last night Mary, from Nottingham, said: “This is quite unbelievable. I don’t know what Prince Charles thinks he is doing.

“The man ruined my son’s life and should have been locked away.

“Instead he now lives in luxury on one of the finest estates in the country.

“I don’t feel Ball was ever properly punished – but the fact that the prince has given sanctuary to this pervert is staggering.
