(Newser) – The Queen of England’s ex-butler pleaded guilty today to repeated dalliances with boys as young as 12, the London Times reports. Paul Kidd, 55, worked for 6 years in Buckingham Palace in the late 1970s and parlayed his role into a lucrative speaking career. His charming persona ended up in court after police followed up a complaint and uncovered 18,000 indecent images of children in his flat.
