“McCandless’s alleged conduct here is extremely disturbing. It not only happened abroad but went further while crossing international borders and pretending to do the work of the Church,” said US Attorney McSwain. “The innocent children in these pictures will have to deal with the effects of this alleged abuse for the rest of their lives.”
William McCandels was considered Charlène’s close confidante at court
The comeback of Princess Charlène, who went into therapy for mental problems in November, is now being overshadowed by recent developments in the case. After all, her previous relationship with the renegade pastor is also discussed in the press. The clergyman is said to have maintained an intimate relationship with Princess Charlène and was not only her confessor, but also a former head of her foundation. Father William McCandels also married Charlène’s brother Gareth Wittstock with his wife Roisin Gavin at a wedding in Monaco and also baptized his daughter Kaia rose. Shortly after the birth of Albert and Charlène’s twins Jacques and gabrella he also visited the royal offspring.
