Virginia Roberts Giuffre, one of the women at the centre of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, has claimed that she was “trafficked” to Prince Andrew in a shocking TV interview.
Speaking to NBC’s Dateline, Virginia alleged that Jeffrey directed her to have sex with a number of powerful men – including the Duke of York.
Virginia was allegedly recruited by the disgraced financier’s former lover, Ghislaine Maxwell, when she was just a teenager.
She claimed: “The first time in London, 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. And then that night Prince Andrew came to her house, in London.”
“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 together’ and I was like ‘okay’. ”
“And we leave Club Tramp with Ghislaine, and Jeffrey and Ghislaine said he’s coming back to the house and I want you to do for him what you do for Epstein,” she alleged.
“I couldn’t believe it. 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.”
During her interview, Virginia was reminded that Prince Andrew has denied the shocking allegations made against him.
And she replied: “He denies that it ever happened. And he’s going to keep denying that it ever happened. But he knows the truth. And I know the truth.”
Just last month, the Duke of York finally addressed his controversial former friendship with Jeffrey Epstein – who commit suicide in prison earlier this month.

The 66-year-old was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges, and was being held without bail.
Prince Andrew said: “At no stage during the limited time I spent with him did I see, witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction.”
