Prince Andrew’s solicitor waits for 90 minutes outside Windsor Castle amid crisis talks

How Prince Andrew took his ‘Good news Gary’ lawyer to the top of a crisis with the Queen…but had to wait outside in the car

  • Attorney Gary Bloxom, 48, waited in the parking lot of Windsor Castle amid crisis talks
  • He was called by a Duke as he was called by his mother the Queen
  • Bloxsome was denied entry to the castle and had to wait 90 minutes outside
  • The lawyer is said to be close to Andrew, and has become his “one-man inner circle”
  • Named ‘Good News Gary’ for telling Andrew the best case scenario










His influence on the Duke of York was so severe that attorney Gary Bloxom found himself in the “inner circle of one person”.

However, it could not have been expected that Prince Andrew would insist on taking Mr. Bloxom to the summit held yesterday with the Queen, yet very few people expected that Prince Andrew would insist.

The Mail can reveal that Mr Bloxsome, 48, accompanied the prince as he was driven from his Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park to meet his 95-year-old mother at Windsor Castle.

Mr Bloxom’s participation may indicate that the prince was aware of the unprecedented severity of the royal clash and was receiving legal advice. Or perhaps Mr. Bloxsome was there intending to help Andrew explain the machinations of his New York sexual affair to Her Majesty.

However, it is understood that he was eventually denied entry to the castle, and instead had to wait outside in the car park during the 90-minute meeting.

Gary Bloxom, the Duke’s trusted lawyer, whose insistence on telling Prince Andrew only the best-case scenario earned him the nickname “Good News Gary”

Mr Bloxsome is believed to have been hired by Andrew in January 2020 to assist with potential legal repercussions from his friendship with Epstein, including any possible investigation by the FBI or Scotland Yard.

The lawyer, from the London law firm Blackford, is said to have been dubbed “The Good News Gary” by critics for his insistence that only the best-case scenario be presented to the Prince.

He is now believed to be the prince’s closest adviser after his former private secretary Amanda Thirsk agreed to resign in 2020 when Andrew was forced to step back from his royal duties due to his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.

Mr Bloxsome is believed to have been hired by Andrew in January 2020 to assist with potential legal repercussions from his friendship with Epstein, including any possible investigation by the FBI or Scotland Yard.

He has previously represented footballers facing charges over a nightclub brawl, and in 2019 he defended former Conservative Party treasurer Simon Day when he was cleared of electoral fraud.

Legal bios say Mr. Bloxsome specializes in helping “high net worth individuals in international jurisdictions”.

The prince also receives advice from Claire Montgomery QC, who struggled to save Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet from extradition after he was accused of human rights abuses. Other clients include Shireen Dewani, who was accused of killing his wife in South Africa in 2010 and was later acquitted.

Last year, she represented a former paratrooper accused of killing an IRA commander in Belfast in 1972. The veteran, known as Soldier A, was released from prison when the trial collapsed.
