King Charles’ mentor Lord Mountbatten accused of child abuse


Lord Mountbatten, the biological uncle of King Charles, is accused of molesting an 11-year-old boy in the 1970s at a children’s home. Former Kincora resident Arthur Smyth has waived his right to secrecy to bring charges against a key member of the Royal Family.

By the time he was killed in 1979 at the hands of the IRA, who had detonated a bomb on his yacht, killing him and three others, Lord Mountbatten, commonly known as “Uncle Dickie” in royal circles family, was Charles’s close advisor. .

Lord Mountbatten was first accused. According to attorney Kevin Winters, given that the lawsuit took place just weeks after the Queen’s death, Smyth was aware that the case would be controversial with many people.

Thirty-nine boys were assaulted at Kincora, according to a historical investigation into institutional abuse, which resulted in three men being jailed for abusing 11 boys. However, it did not uncover any evidence that the security agencies were involved in the abuse.

William McGrath, Joseph Mains and Raymond Semple were three men believed to be leaders of the Kincora child sex abuse network and were found guilty of child abuse in December 1981, according to an article in The Village.

The person who is said to have allowed Mountbatten to approach Arthur Smyth is named McGrath. McGrath allegedly continued to exploit Smyth for profit months later.

In a recent study, Northern Ireland Police Inspector (Poni) Marie Anderson stated that the concerns of some former residents about the police’s refusal to look into sexual assault allegations at Kincora were “maintained” justifiable and reasonable,” Metrol reported.

If Smyth’s allegations are confirmed, he will be the fourth person to come forward to accuse Mountbatten of abusing them. Arthur, who claimed to be one of the victims of Mountbatten’s abuse, apparently attempted suicide by destroying his motorcycle later while still alive and was hospitalized with his injuries.
