Desperate Prince Charles wrote letter to Jimmy Savile begging him for PR advice

Prince Charles once sought advice from twisted paedophile Jimmy Savile for the Royal Family's public relations.

The desperate future king's handwritten letters to the shamed Jim'll Fix It presenter will be seen for the first time in the new Netflix documentary, Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story.

The TV show, released today (April 6), shows the Prince of Wales's correspondence with Savile during PR blunders for his brother, Prince Andrew and his former wife, Sarah Ferguson.

This was before serial sex offender Jimmy Savile's sick crimes were revealed.

The Duke of York had stirred up scandal following the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103.

The plane exploded over Lockerbie on December 21, 1988, killing 259 people including 11 on the ground but the second son of the monarch was less than empathetic.

One of the letters dated January 14, 1989, read: “Perhaps I am wrong, but you are the bloke who knows what’s going on.

"What I really need, is a list of suggestions from you. I so want to get to parts of the country that others don’t get to reach.”

In a fuller letter dated January 27, Charles wrote: "I wonder if you would ever be prepared to meet my sister-in-law, the Duchess of York?

“I can’t help feeling that it would be extremely useful to hear if you could.

"I feel she could do with some of your straight-forward common sense.”

Jimmy Savile then responded to Charles's request and wrote an action plan which read: “Guidelines for members of the Royal Family and their staffs" and calls for “a special person with considerable experience in such matters”.

It goes on: “There must be an ‘incident room’ with several independent phone lines, teletext etc.

"The Queen should be informed in advance of any proposed action by Family members.”

The documentary, Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story, looks at how Savile made contacts at the highest levels of society, including then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and senior police officers.
