British royal and son of the queen Prince Andrew gave an interview about his friendship with now deceased billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein this weekend. It did not go well.
Prince Andrew is the third son of Queen Elizabeth II and, by all accounts, her "favorite" child. When Jeffrey Epstein was alive, the prince was frequently photographed with him, even though Epstein had been steadily accused of various sex offenses dating back to 2005. In 2010, Epstein served 13 months in jail on charges related to human trafficking — and the prince was photographed with him even after his jail sentence, which was widely publicized.
What's more, Virginia Roberts claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew three times when she was just 17. He has denied ever having slept with Roberts.
Because of all this, there's been a steady drumbeat of questions surrounding Prince Andrew's friendship with Epstein, especially since Epstein faced more charges this year and ended up dying in prison. Prince Andrew has still never been questioned under oath about his friendship with Epstein or the allegations made against him by Roberts, as far as the public knows.
