So, Prince Andrew Has Been Accused of Statutory Rape With an Underage "Sex Slave"

Huge story. I don't know what's true, of course, but the allegations are huge.

Buckingham Palace is said to have conceded the furore 'isn't going to go away' as Prince Andrew is expected to hold crisis talks with the Queen today as he returned to Britain after a luxury holiday with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson and daughter Eugenie.

The Duke of York had been locked inside a £22,000-a-week ski lodge in Verbier since he was accused of abusing the girl 'procured' for him by his close friend and convicted paedophile Epstein. But he left the Swiss resort yesterday afternoon.

A royal aide said today Prince Andrew will 'move on and push ahead' with his work despite the damaging allegations.

...


The extraordinary allegation made by Virginia Roberts is part of a US civil case against shamed billionaire Epstein. She claims Prince Andrew had sex with her when she was 17 – a minor under US law – and employed as a 'sex slave' by [Jeffrey] Epstein.

The fifth in line to the throne slept with Miss Roberts at an orgy with other under-age girls on Epstein's private Caribbean island, as well as in a private house in London and in Epstein's New York mansion, according to the court papers.

If Miss Roberts does publish a tell-all book, which expands on the claims she made in court papers, it could be a major embarrassment to Prince Andrew and the Royal Family.

It could also lead to the naming of other high profile people and could lead to further police investigations and to some prosecutions.

Roberts names some other men she claims she had sex with at Jeffrey Epstein's parties, including, oddly, Alan Derschowitz (who categorically denies the claim).

Epstein was known for cavorting with young girls. And he had, get this, lots of old male friends.

Including Bill Clinton.

Roberts does not make any allegations along those lines. Just noting it.
