Virginia Roberts Giuffre, Prince Andrew: accuser says she was forced to perform sex.
Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre claims she had sex with him in a bathroom after he plied her with vodka when she was 17, which the royal vehemently denies.
Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘sex slave’ today claimed she had sex with Prince Andrew in a bathroom when aged 17 after the royal plied her with vodka at a posh nightclub, according to The Sun.
Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s claims come in a no-holds-barred interview she gave with NBC’s Dateline along with five more of the shamed tycoon’s accusers.
The royal has vehemently denied the accusations against him branding them “false” and “without foundation”.
And when called by The Sun Buckingham Palace would not comment on the latest claims.
However, Ms Roberts Giuffre, who lives in Australia with her Australian husband, stood by her accusations saying the Prince “was an abuser, he was a participant.”
The 35-year-old claims her first sexual encounter with the Prince took place in the London townhouse of Epstein’s ‘madam’ Ghislaine Maxwell.
She told NBC: “The first time in London, I was so young. Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and said, You’re gonna meet a prince today.’
“I didn’t know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to a prince.
“We went out to Club Tramp. Prince Andrew got me alcohol, it was in the VIP section, I’m pretty sure it was vodka.
“He was like, ‘Let’s dance.’ I was like, ‘OK.’ We leave Club Tramp and I hop in the car with Ghislaine and Jeffrey. She says ‘He’s coming back to the house and I want you to do for him what you do for Epstein.’”
Ms Roberts Giuffre then claims they went back to Ghislaine’s townhouse where she and Prince Andrew had sex in the bathroom and then in the bedroom.
“He wasn’t rude or anything about it, he said, thank you and some kind of soft sentiments like that and left,” she claims.
“I just couldn’t believe it, that even royalty were involved.
“He denies that it ever happened, he’s going to keep denying that it ever happened but he knows the truth and I know the truth.”
When asked if she is interested only in money, Ms Roberts Giuffre said: “Unfortunately there’s this horrible law called [the] statute of limitations.
“My lawyers have told me (the way) to hold them accountable is through them calling me a liar and I’m not, it’s a defamation lawsuit.”
Ms Roberts Giuffre alleges that she slept with Prince Andrew three times — claims the royal vehemently denies.
Last month, she stood outside a court in Manhattan and delivered a message to Prince Andrew.
She said: “He knows exactly what he’s done. And I hope he comes clean about it.”
The royal has denied any wrongdoing, saying at no stage did he “witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to [Epstein’s] arrest and conviction”.
A previous Buckingham Palace statement said: “The Duke of York has been appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes.
“His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behaviour is abhorrent.”
