The shamed TV star 
forged close ties with Charles 
and helped him vet his private secretary

Sir James Wilson Vincent "Jimmy" Savile
(31 October 1926 – 29 October 2011) 
was an English disc jockey, television presenter, 
media personality and charity fundraiser. 
He hosted the BBC television show Jim'll Fix It, was the first and last presenter of the long-running BBC music chart show Top of the Pops, and raised an estimated £40 million for charities. After his death, hundreds of allegations of child sex abuse and rape became public, leading the police to believe that Savile may have been one of Britain's most prolific sex offenders.

JIMMY SAVILE was so close to Prince Charles that he advised him on the appointment of one of his most senior aides, The Sunday Times has learnt. In an indication of the power and privilege extended to Savile by the royal family, Charles asked the DJ and television presenter for advice before selecting Sir Christopher Airy to be his private secretary in 1990. Savile and Charles met Airy, a former major-general, before he was offered the post, according to an informed source. The revelation shows the close friendship between the heir to the throne and the television presenter, who the prince grew to rely on in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It also raises questions about the judgment of Charles and his decision to befriend Savile who is now believed to have abused as many as 300 child victims.
