The Queen’s Cousin Lord Mountbatten Accused of Sexually Abusing 11-Year-Old Boy

Lord Mountbatten has been accused of sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy at a children’s home in an explosive court case brought 43 years after his death.

Arthur Smyth claims the royal molested him in 1977 at the Kincora children’s home in Northern Ireland.

The late Lord Mountbatten, the uncle of Prince Philip, second cousin of King George VI, and the Queen’s cousin, was assassinated two years later after the IRA planted a bomb on his yacht.

For the first time in 43 years, the High Court in Belfast will hear allegations that he abused a boy at the children’s home.

A public inquiry five years ago found that at least 39 boys had been abused at Kincora children’s home, four decades after three staff members were jailed for abusing 11 victims there.

The inquiry criticized the authorities and the Royal Ulster Constabulary for their poor response to complaints at the time.

Multiple claims have also been made that security agencies actively aided and covered the abuse.

Smyth, now 56, claims he was first abused by staff member William McGrath – who came to be known as ‘the beast of Kincora.’

Smyth then claims that McGrath introduced him to an ‘upmarket’ stranger in August 1977, who twice preyed on him.

Mr. Smyth told the Sunday Life:

“McGrath would say, ‘You are going to meet a special friend.’ And I went, ‘Oh really?’ And that’s when he took me into that room – downstairs there was a big office, with a big desk, and there was a shower.”

“[The stranger’s] name was never mentioned in the room. He made me have a shower and then McGrath would come down and get me afterwards.”

Smyth said he only realized his abuser’s identity in 1979 due to publicity over Lord Mountbatten’s murder.

Mr. Smyth, who now lives in Australia, added:

“You don’t forget who abused you. Trust me. You block it out, but you don’t forget. I shut it down for years. I felt embarrassed by what had happened but now I want peace.”

The legal action against Lord Mountbatten also includes actions against various Northern Irish institutions, including the Department of Health and the chief constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

Kevin Winters, Mr. Smyth’s lawyer, said: “[This is] the first time that someone has stepped forward to take allegations against Lord Mountbatten into a court.”

“That decision hasn’t been taken lightly. He understands only too well that it will be a deeply unpopular case with many people, coming as it does within weeks of the passing of the Queen,” he added.

“However, litigation involving mental, physical, and sex abuse isn’t undertaken to deliberately offend sensitivities,” he said.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
