When Prince Andrew attended a party held by Jeffrey Epstein in 2010, he appeared to have a little too much fun, a guest claimed.
“Epstein came with some girls who were tall and skinny and Russian looking," they said, according to The Sun. "They were about 20-ish. They looked like teens. There were about eight people sitting around the dinner table and they spoke to Andrew at length about the royal wedding, American politics, international politics. Prince Andrew had the time of his life.”
The outlet also reported that a publicist gave Andrew a copy of the movie The King's Speech, which he and Epstein allegedly watched the next day and received massages from girls.
Recently, Katie Couric recalled the same party in her new tell-all.
The journalist described the townhouse as "Eyes Wide Shut with a twist — creepy chandeliers and body-part art," and her boyfriend at the time, Brooks Perlin, told her that the people who took their coats were pretty young, the Daily Mail reported.
"I couldn't imagine what Epstein and Andrew were up to, apart from trying to cultivate friends in the media," Couric writes. "Which, in retrospect, they must have figured they'd need."
Epstein — who died in prison in 2019 — and Andrew ran in the same circles, and after the former was convicted, the royal stepped down from his duties.
Since then, Andrew has remained out the spotlight. Now, Virginia Roberts — who was allegedly in Epstein's sex trafficking ring — is suing Andrew for allegedly raping her when she was 17 years old.
In the documents, which were obtained by The Royal Observer, Roberts claims that the royal "sexually abused Plaintiff in Epstein’s New York mansion in this District."
"On another occasion, Prince Andrew sexually abused Plaintiff on Epstein’s private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Little St. James," the documents state. "During each of the aforementioned incidents, Plaintiff was compelled by express or implied threats by Epstein, Maxwell, and/or Prince Andrew to engage in sexual acts with Prince Andrew, and feared death or physical injury to herself or another and other repercussions for disobeying Epstein, Maxwell, and Prince Andrew due to their powerful connections, wealth, and authority."
However, Andrew has denied any wrongdoing. "It didn't happen. I can absolutely categorically tell you it never happened. I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever," he said in 2019.
