Fictitious executives were told Prince Michael of Kent could be hired to endorse their company to Vladimir Putin‘s inner circle, a bombshell report claims. 

The Queen’s cousin, 78, told undercover reporters posing as investors from South Korea in a virtual meeting that he could be hired for £10,000 a day to make ‘confidential’ representations to Putin’s regime.  

Journalists from Channel 4 Dispatches and The Sunday Times were investigating claims that Prince Michael and the Marquess of Reading were selling their links to the Russian regime.    

Prince Michael said he would be ‘very excited’ to work with the fictitious ‘House of Haedong’ – which alleged it wanted to further its business in Russia by making links with Putin’s inner circle. 

Prince Michael, a grandson of King George V, allegedly said he would give the ‘House of Haedong’ his endorsement in the Kremlin for a $200,000 fee.

He added his relationship with the state could ‘bring some benefit’ to the firm, billed as ‘new boutique fund that invests in the most regal of assets: gold’. 

A representative for Prince Michael has insisted the royal has ‘no special relationship with President Putin’, adding they have had no contact since June 2003.
