A Netflix director claimed that Prince Charles sought PR advice from Jimmy Savile when the Duke of York made a blunder after the Lockerbie incident.

According to filmmaker Rowan Deacon, Savile put together a public relations manual for the Prince of Wales, subsequently showing it to the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

During a 20-year correspondence, the late BBC presenter functioned as an unofficial consultant to the Prince, according to Deacon, director of the new documentary Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story.

The filmmaker received hundreds of letters were received by the filmmaker. In the letter, Prince Charles requested advice from Savile on public speeches and his personal life.

Deacon said that one of these is a document titled Guidelines for Members of the Royal Family and Their Staffs, written by Savile for the Prince in 1989.

The document, per the director, was written in response to the Duke of York's remarks about the 1988 Lockerbie bombing.

According to The Telegraph, Prince Andrew told reporters, "I think statistically something like this has to happen at some point."

Prince Andrew had sought Savile's assistance on coping with public relations gaffes after his performance in the aftermath of Pan Am Flight 103's bombing in December 1988. Eleven people died along with the 259 passengers and crew members on board the Heathrow-bound flight to New York. In the aftermath of the national disaster, Andrew, on the other hand, appears to have showed little empathy.

As a result, Savile prepared an action plan that included establishing an incident room with separate phone lines and the requirement that every planned action be vetted by Her Majesty, which was allegedly seen by the Queen and Prince Philip.

Prince Charles responded on Jan. 27, 1989, attaching a letter to the Queen on "incorporating your points."

Savile's peculiarities and generosity, which he exploited to disguise his decades of sex assault claims, will be explored in a new Netflix documentary. Savile, who rose from humble beginnings to become one of Britain's most well-known television characters, passed away in 2011 at the age of 84.

Throughout his illustrious career at the BBC, he worked hard to refute allegations regarding his later years' criminal activities.

A Corporation that investigated his crimes claimed that he abused at least 72 children throughout a four-decade campaign of sexual assault, some as young as eight.

According to the Daily Mail, he was abused for the first time in 1959 and for the last time in 2006.

Prince Charles sought advice on catastrophe reaction after Prince Andrew's performance following the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103. The Duke of York appeared nonchalant when a plane exploded over Lockerbie on Dec. 21, 1988, killing 259 people, including 11 on the ground.

In the documentary "Jimmy Savile: British Horror Story," he analyzes how Savile built contacts at the highest levels of society. These also included then-Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and top police officials.

It also illustrates how The Sun was one of the first publications to bring his evil side to light. According to The Sun, the said journal published an essay in 1983 in which he revealed a rare sight of his dark side.
