Following Prince Andrew’s disastrous BBC interview during which the Queen’s reported favourite son blundered his way through questions about his friendship with convicted sex offender and pedofile Jeffrey Epstein, Virginia Roberts Giuffre is set to do a tell-all of her own.
In court documents which were released during Epstein’s trial, Roberts, who was identified as Jane Doe, claimed she was forced to sleep with Prince Andrew three times as a 17-year-old by Epstein, who she alleges used her as a sex slave. But in his recent interview with BBC reporter Emily Maitlis inside Buckingham Palace, the Duke of York denied ever meeting Roberts 18 years ago and has previously alleged the photo showing him with his arms around her is photoshopped.
According to the Mirror, Roberts has given an interview to BBC current affairs program Panorama, which was filmed prior to Andrew’s and is due to air on Monday, December 2, at 8.30pm.
Giuffre’s allegations were very specific and included that when she met Prince Andrew, he was “profusely sweating.” However, Andrew claims he had medical condition at the time which meant he could not have been sweating. “I didn’t sweat at the time because I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenalin in the Falklands War when I was shot at and I simply… it was almost impossible for me to sweat,” he said. After the interview, a photo of him sweating taken in 2000 went viral.
Epstein was found dead in his prison cell in New York in August, where he was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges.
