Duke of York claims alibi in interview with Emily Maitlis for Newsnight about Jeffrey Epstein links
The Duke of York declared on Saturday night that he might not have actually made love with a teenage lady in the London house of British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell due to the fact that he was at house after going to a kids’s celebration at Pizza Express in Woking.
Prince Andrew provided the surprising description in a bombshell interview with Emily Maitlis for BBC’s Newsnight in which he was grilled about his relationship with the disgraced investor Jeffrey Epstein , who has actually been exposed as a paedophile.
In a inconsistent and in some cases rambling account of their relationship, the prince insisted he had actually not made love with any females trafficked by Epstein in any of his residential or commercial properties. He verified that he had actually flown on Epstein’s now well-known jet, nicknamed the Lolita Express, and remained on his personal island and at his house in Palm Beach, along with at his New York estate.
“If you’re a guy it is a favorable act to make love with someone,” the prince discussed. “You need to … take some sort of favorable action therefore for that reason if you attempt to forget it’s extremely tough to attempt and forget a favorable action and I do not keep in mind anything.”
Of the claims that he made love with Virginia Giuffre , previously called Virginia Roberts, when she was 17, the prince unconditionally rejected it ever occurred.
Roberts has stated that they partied at Tramp bar in London on 10 March 2001, prior to returning to Maxwell’s Belgravia mews home where she declares she made love with Andrew.
The prince stated: “I was with the kids and I ‘d taken Beatrice to a Pizza Express in Woking for a celebration at I expect 4 or 5 in the afternoon. Due to the fact that the duchess [and then Sarah Ferguson] was away, we have a basic guideline in the household that when one is away the other exists.”
