Jeffrey Epstein accuser: ‘I was trafficked to Prince Andrew’

A woman has described in detail how she allegedly had sex with Prince Andrew in 2001 when she was 17-years-old.

Speaking to NBC's Dateline, Virginia Roberts Giuffre claimed the incident happened in Ghislaine Maxwell's London house after the royal gave her vodka at a nightclub.

The prince has repeatedly denied he had "any form of sexual contact or relationship" with Mrs Giuffre, adding "any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation".

In her first TV interview, Mrs Giuffre insisted she was telling the truth.

She said: "I was so young. Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and said, 'you're going to meet a prince today'.

"I didn't know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to a prince.

"We went out to club Tramp. Prince Andrew got me alcohol, it was in the VIP section, I'm pretty sure it was vodka.

"Prince Andrew was like, 'let's dance'. I was like, 'OK'. We leave club Tramp and I hop in the car with Ghislaine and Jeffrey.

"Ghislaine said 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."

In previously reported on court documents, she said they went back to Ms Maxwell's townhouse where she and Prince Andrew had sex.

"He wasn't rude about it. He said thank you and some kind of soft sentiments like that and left.

"I just couldn't believe it. I couldn't believe that even royalty were involved.

"He denies that it ever happened, he's going to keep denying that it ever happened but he knows the truth and I know the truth."

Prince Andrew, 59, has been dogged by accusations of a lack of judgement about his links with Jeffrey Epstein, who was found hanged in his prison cell in New York on 10 August.

The disgraced billionaire was facing a 45-year sentence if convicted of multiple counts of sexually abusing under-age girls.
