Royal 'Blackmailed Over Gay Sex Act'

 
 

A member of the Royal Family fell victim to a £50,000 blackmail plot over claims he performed a gay sex act on one of his employees, a court has heard

 
     
 
Ian Strachan denies charge  

The employee, said to be his "right hand man", was also recorded taking drugs and making "scandalous" remarks about other royals, a jury was told.
Ian Strachan, 31, and Sean McGuigan, 41, apparently tried to sell the tapes to a series of tabloid newspapers and the publicist Max Clifford.
But when those attempts failed they allegedly turned their attentions to the married royal and tried to blackmail him.
The royal cannot be named for legal reasons.

 
 

The two men were arrested after a meeting in a London hotel with a man they thought was an aide to the royal but was in fact an undercover police officer, jurors heard.
Strachan, of Imperial Wharf, Fulham, southwest London, and McGuigan, of Latchmere Road, Battersea, south London, deny the charge that they made "an unwarranted demand with menaces" of £50,000.
They are said to have recorded eight hours of audio and video footage of the royal's employee.
He is said to have made "allegations of impropriety" about his boss's business practices as well as claims about other royals.
The man, known as witness D, was also filmed using a Harrods card to take cocaine, jurors were told.
Mark Ellison QC, prosecuting, said: "There were three audio files apparently asserting that the member of the Royal family who employed him had performed an act of oral sex on him."
He said the act was said to have taken place on the kitchen floor at a party.
