Prince Andrew ‘sex slave’ accuser Virginia Roberts claims she was told ‘do for him what you do for Jeffrey Esptein’ – The Sun

PRINCE Andrew's 'sex slave' accuser Virgina Roberts claimed she was told to 'do for him what you do for Jeffrey Epstein' in a bombshell television interview tonight.

Speaking on BBC Panorama, Ms Roberts said she was trafficked for sex by US billionaire Epstein and ordered to have sex with Prince Andrew at the age of 17.

Ms Roberts, now 35, says she was trafficked for sex by US billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and his Brit socialite ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell.

She alleges she was forced to sleep with the Duke of York in London, New York and the US Virgin Islands as a 17-year-old in 2001.

Prince Andrew denies the allegations and claimed he has no recollection of ever meeting Ms Roberts in a BBC Newsnight interview last month.

But speaking to Panorama of the night they allegedly first slept together in London, Ms Roberts said: "Ghislane tells me I have to do for Andrew what I do for Jeffrey and that made me sick.

"I just didn't expect it from royalty. I didn't expect it from someone people look up to and admire.

"It was disgusting. He  got up and said thanks and walked out and I sat there in bed, I felt horrified and ashamed and dirty.

"The next day Ghislane pats me on the back and said 'you made him really happy'.

"I had just been abused by a member of the Royal Family.

"I hadn't been chained to a kitchen sink but these powerful people were my chains."

Prince Andrew claims Ms Roberts' account of their night together in Tramp nightclub in London and Ghislaine Maxwell's flat in Belgravia is "categorically untrue".

He says he was at a Pizza Express in Woking on the night in question in March 2001 taking his daughter Princess Beatrice to a party.

The prince added that Ms Roberts' claims that he sweated heavily could not have been true as a medical condition he had at the time meant he couldn't sweat, after suffering an overdose of adrenalin during the Falklands War.

Repeating her claims tonight, Ms Roberts said: "He asked me to dance. He is the most hideous dancer I've ever seen in my life.

"It was horrible and this guy was sweating all over me, like his sweat was like it was raining basically everywhere.

"I was just like grossed out from it, but I knew I had to keep him happy because that's what Jeffrey and Ghislaine would have expected from me."


Leaked e-mails obtained by the programme claim to show Andrew begging Maxwell for help after Ms Roberts lodged court papers in Flordia claiming she'd been forced to have sex with the Duke of York.

The e-mails were sent just weeks after Ms Roberts lodged court papers in Florida claiming she had been forced to have sex with Prince Andrew.

The duke is said to have written: "Let me know when we can talk. Got some specific questions to ask you about Virginia Roberts."

Ms Maxwell replies: "Have some info. Call me when you have a moment."

The court papers were later struck from US civil court records when a judge ruled them “immaterial and impertinent” to allegations against Epstein.


Ms Roberts told the documentary she has proof the infamous picture showing Prince Andrew with his arm round her in Ghislane Maxwell's home is genuine.

The Duke of York has previously claims he has 'no recollection' of the photograph being taken at Ghislaine Maxwell's Belgravia home in 2001.

Legal papers show an ex-partner of Virginia told officials he remembers being shown a copy of the picture just months after it was taken.

Ms Roberts told Panorama a date on the back of the photo shows it was printed on March 13, 2001 – just two days after it was taken.

She said: "It's an authentic photo. There's a date on the back of the it from when it was printed.

"The people on the inside are going to keep coming up with these ridiculous excuses.

"Like his arm was elongated or the photo was doctored, or he came to New York to break up with Jeffrey Epstein. I mean, come on, I'm calling BS on this, because that's what it is.

"He knows what happened. I know what happened and there's only one of us telling the truth, and I know that's me."


Epstein was convicted of procuring a minor for prostitution in 2008 and was arrested for alleged sex trafficking earlier this year before taking his life in prison in August.

The Panorama documentary told how the disgraced billionaire groomed local schoolgirls to become masseurs at his LA home and later for sex.

Prince Andrew was friends with Epstein and new pictures revealed by the BBC show the pair together with Ms Maxwell at Ascot in 2000.

The prince went to stay at Epstein's New York home three years after the billionaire's conviction but claimed last month he did so to tell him they could no longer be friends.

Ms Roberts told the Panorama documentary she was invited to a job interview as a masseuse at Epstein's LA home when she was 17 and was then groomed into sex.

She said: "I implore the people in the UK to stand up beside me, to help me fight this fight, to not accept this as being OK.

"This is not some sordid sex story. This is a story of being trafficked. This is a story of abuse and this is a story of your guys' royalty."


In a car-crash interview with Newsnight this month, Andrew denied ever meeting Virginia and claimed he was at a Pizza Express in Woking on the night he was said to have done so.

He also dismissed her claims that he sweated heavily as they danced at the club — saying an overdose of adrenaline during the Falklands War left him with a medical condition that meant he could not sweat.

And he suggested a photo of them together could have been faked.

The Duke of York, 59, has vehemently denied the accusations against him, branding them "false" and "without foundation".

He was forced to step down from royal duties following his disastrous interview with Emily Maitlis on November 16 — with charities and businesses dumping him as their patron in the fallout.

He was widely criticised for failing to show remorse for his friendship with Epstein or empathy for the paedo’s victims.

Epstein was found dead in his New York prison cell in August as he awaited trial on sex trafficking charges.

Virginia initially made her claims against Andrew in court papers in Florida but they were struck from US civil court records.

Buckingham Palace has branded the allegations "false and without any foundation", stating: "Any suggestion of impropriety with under-age minors" by the duke was "categorically untrue".
