U.S. Federal prosecutors have formally issued an official request to the British government to speak to fallen royal Prince Andrew.
Investigators in New York are conducting an ongoing investigation into the late Jeffrey Epstein’s history of sexual abuse according to NBC news.
The Duke of York, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II and longtime buddy of the loathsome Epstein, has been accused by one woman of sexual abuse.
66-year-old Epstein died by suicide in August while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. Prosecutors accused the politically connected financier of preying on dozens of underage girls in New York and Florida in the early 2000s.
Following Epstein’s death, prosecutors brought renewed attention to several high-profile people into the late billionaire philanthropist’s orbit, including Andrew.
In a widely ridiculed and cringeworthy interview with the BBC last year, 60-year-old Andrew denied allegations that he had sex with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims she was trafficked by Epstein when she was 17 and was directed to have sexual relations with the prince.
Andrew denied that he ever met her — despite a photograph (above) showing otherwise — instead claiming that he was in a pizza joint with his daughter on the day in 2001 that Giuffre alleges they had the sexual encounter.
Andrew told Emily Maitlis of the BBC that he let the royal family down by staying with Epstein after his 2008 conviction.
