Prince Andrew’s accuser Virginia Giuffre calls on the public to “stand beside” her as she comes forward with her accusations against Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew. In her new interview for BBC’s "Panorama" program, she details her experiences with Epstein and Andrew and “calls BS” on Andrew’s denials.
As you likely recall, Giuffre says she was trafficked by Epstein back in 2001, when she was 17 - and that she was soon ordered to “do to Andrew” what she was doing for Epstein. Giuffre says she did, because she “had to keep him happy because that’s what Jeffrey and [his socialite girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell] would have expected.”
Giuffre says the acquaintance began when she, Epstein, Maxwell, and the Prince went to a nightclub in London. "He is the most hideous dancer I've ever seen in my life", she tells "Panorama." "His sweat was like it was raining basically everywhere." Giuffre added that after that, the group went back to Maxwell’s house and claims she had sex with Andrew.
“I implore the people of the [United Kingdom] to stand up beside me, to help me fight this fight [and] not accept this as being okay,” Giuffre says. “This is not some sordid sex story. This is a story of being trafficked, of abuse, and a story of your guys’ royalty.
- ONE MORE THING! BBC appears to have uncovered another piece to the puzzle that could prove that while Andrew’s memory may not be reliable, emails are. The network has uncovered emails from 2015 that were exchanged between Andrew and Maxwell specifically about Giuffre (then known as Roberts). That's about the time that allegations about Epstein's trafficking first came to light. In one email, Andrew said he had “specific questions” for Maxwell about Virginia. Then Maxwell replied, “Have some info, call me when you have a moment.” Check out the screenshots HERE.
- BUT WAIT...THERE'S MORE!Following the interview airing, Buckingham Palace released a statementsaying that Andrew “unequivocally regrets his ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein,” but doubles down on his denial that he had “any form of sexual contact or relationship” with Giuffre.
