Prince Andrew 'breaks silence' on Epstein claims as Duke 'appalled' by pal

Prince Andrew 'breaks silence' on Epstein claims as Duke 'appalled' by pal

"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", the statement said.

The Mail said the picture had been taken in 2010 - two years after Epstein pleaded guilty to a Florida state felony prostitution charge and registered as a sex offender.

The grainy video published by the Mail on Sunday claims to show the prince waving goodbye to a woman as she leaves Epstein's NY mansion in 2010. Shortly after, he quit his unpaid job as a trade envoy.

Epstein was a wealth manager who hobnobbed with the rich, famous and influential, including presidents and a prince.

Andrew's connections to Epstein came under fresh scrutiny following newly unsealed legal documents on August 9. And no one, not Epstein who was presumed innocent and had violated no prison disciplinary rule, and not anyone should be imprisoned under the harsh, even medieval conditions at the MCC where Epstein spent his final hours.

New York City's medical examiner ruled Jeffrey Epstein's death a suicide Friday, confirming after almost a week of speculation that the financier faced with sex trafficking charges hanged himself in his jail cell.

Buckingham Palace has already issued strong denials over claims from a woman who said she was forced to have sex with Andrew. The photograph first appeared in the British press in 2011.

The medical examiner's ruling that Epstein's death was a suicide came a day after two more women sued Jeffrey Epstein's estate, saying he sexually abused them.

Prince Andrew has strongly denied any accusations of wrongdoing against him.

Yesterday, footage emerged showing the Duke of York inside convicted paedophile Epstein's Manhattan mansion in 2010.

Epstein and Prince Andrew reportedly formed a close friendship through the late '90s and early 2000s after being introduced by Maxwell.

The Associated Press reviewed hundreds of pages of police reports, Federal Bureau of Investigation records and court documents that show Epstein relied on an entire staff of associates to arrange massages that led to sex acts.

According to the Sun tabloid, Andrew was recently spotted in Spain with his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson.

Ferguson has also been criticised for her connections to Epstein, having accepted money from the disgraced financier to help pay off her debts. He was seen with his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, at the church in Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Sunday.
