- The Duke of York, Queen Elizabeth's middle son, denies that he had any sexual contact or relationship with Giuffre.
- Virginia Giuffre and several other women claim that they were all victims of the billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who forced minors to prostitution.
- Giuffre previously stated that she had sex with the Duke of York three times.
American Virginia Giuffre, who previously stated that she had had sex with Prince Andrew at the age of 17, said in an interview with NBC News that she was “brought” specifically for the prince. Giuffre described him in an interview as a “molester” and “one of the participants” in parties hosted by American billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, accused of forcing minors to engage in sexual slavery.
Giuffre previously said that the prince made contact with her in a bathroom in a London house, where she was captured in a photograph with Prince Andrew. The Duke of York, Queen Elizabeth’s middle son, denies that he had any sexual contact or relationship with Giuffre. These words were contained in an official statement by Buckingham Palace on behalf of the prince, which also said that these accusations were false and have no basis.
Virginia Giuffre and several other women claim that they were all victims of the billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who forced minors to prostitution. Giuffre states that Epstein made her have sex with a number of influential men, including Prince Andrew.
In August of this year, Prince Andrew issued two statements, saying that he was “shocked” by reports of Epstein’s criminal behavior, but he himself had never noticed anything about him for the short time they met, which ultimately led to the arrest of Epstein.
Giuffre, now 35, is one of six women who gave an interview to NBC’s Dateline program on Epstein’s sex crimes. She said that Epstein’s friend, Ghislaine Maxwell, signed her to work that summer when Giuffre worked in the locker room of the luxury Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, owned by Donald Trump, now President of the United States.
Maxwell is the daughter of former British media tycoon and Member of Parliament, Robert Maxwell, who died in 1991 under mysterious circumstances. After Maxwell’s death, numerous financial abuses were revealed in his companies. In life, Maxwell repeatedly denied all the allegations against him.
“The first time in London, I was so young. Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and she said, ‘You’re gonna meet a prince today.’ I didn’t know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to that prince,” Giuffre told Dateline. According to Giuffre, she was taken to the Trump club. In the VIP lounge, Prince Andrew treated her with alcohol, probably vodka.
The prince asked her to dance, and then the three of them— Prince Andrew, Ghislaine Maxwell, and 17-year-old Virginia— returned to Maxwell’s house. Giuffre said that Maxwell told her, “‘He’s coming back to the house. And I want you to do for him what you do for Epstein.’ I couldn’t believe it.” According to Giuffre, they had sex in the bathroom, then continued in the bedroom.
Giuffre previously stated that she had sex with the Duke of York three times. The second time occurred at the Epstein Mansion in New York, and the third at his estate in the Caribbean. She rejected the suggestion that she was driven by the desire to receive compensation, saying that due to the expiration of the statute of limitations, she could not file a formal lawsuit.
