Prince Andrew Interview. Categorically denies sex claims, was at Pizza Express
Latest 8 June 2020: The US has made an official request to speak to Prince Andrew in the Epstein inquiry
Up until now the Duke of York has provided “zero cooperation” over the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking inquiry. the prosecutor overseeing the investigation has said.
US Attorney Geoffrey Berman told a news conference outside Epstein’s New York mansion: “To date, Prince Andrew has provided zero cooperation.”
The Duke of York has stepped back from royal duties for the “foreseeable future”. This is due to the Jeffrey Epstein scandal. Prince Andrew said his links with the convicted sex offender had become a “major disruption” to the Royal Family. He said he deeply sympathised with Epstein’s victims and “everyone who has been affected and wants some form of closure”.
The Duke of York has “categorically” denied having any sexual contact with an American woman, who says she was forced to have sex with him aged 17.
Answering questions about his links to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in a BBC interview, Prince Andrew said the alleged incidents “never happened”.
Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s accusers, claimed she was forced to have sex with the prince three times.
The prince said he was at home with his children on one of the occasions.
Prince Andrew, who is the Queen’s third child, has been facing questions for several months over his ties to Epstein, a 66-year-old American financier who took his own life while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
The prince spoke to BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis in an interview recorded at Buckingham Palace on Thursday.
It was broadcast on BBC Two at 21:00 GMT on Saturday 16 November.
Did you see the programme? What did you think? The Prince seemed to be forthcoming about his movements but do you believe him? Was he questioned closely enough? Should other questions have been asked? Should he give evidence?
