Prince Andrew, a member of Britain’s royal family, claimed in a rare interview with BBC that he has “no recollection of ever meeting” the Jeffrey Epstein victim who labeled him as part of an underage sex ring.
For months, Prince Andrew has faced questions in regard to his connection with Epstein. Prince Andrew’s comments came in an exclusive interview with BBC Newsnight‘s Emily Maitlis, which is set to air on Saturday.
Not only has Prince Andrew been photographed walking with Epstein in New York’s Central Park in 2010, but prior footage published on Sunday showed Prince Andrew in Epstein’s Manhattan mansion around the same time.
Prince Andrew said in regards to the company he kept with Epstein after his first conviction:
That’s the bit that… as it were, I kick myself for on a daily basis because it was not something that was becoming of a member of the Royal Family and we try and uphold the highest standards and practices and I let the side down, simple as that.
Virginia Roberts, one of Epstein’s accusers now known as Virginia Giuffre, claimed she had dinner with Prince Andrew, danced with him at a club, and later had sex with him in Belgravia, central London. read more
