Skip to comments.Prince Andrew interview: I let the side down by staying with Jeffrey Epstein

Prince Andrew has been facing questions for several months over his ties to Epstein, a 66-year-old American financier who took his own life while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
In 2010, the prince was photographed walking with Epstein in New York's Central Park - two years after Epstein's first conviction for soliciting a minor for prostitution.
Footage published by the Mail on Sunday showed the prince in Epstein's Manhattan mansion around the same time.
Addressing his decision to stay with Epstein following the American's first conviction, Prince Andrew said: "That's the bit that as it were, I kick myself for on a daily basis because it was not something that was becoming of a member of the Royal Family and we try and uphold the highest standards and practices and I let the side down, simple as that."
In 2015, Prince Andrew was named in court papers as part of a US civil case against Epstein.
One of Epstein's accusers, Virginia Roberts - now Virginia Giuffre - said she was forced to have sex with the prince three times between 1999 - when she was 17 - and 2002, in London, New York and on a private Caribbean island owned by Epstein.
At the time she was under-age according to Florida state law.
In the BBC interview, Emily Maitlis asks the prince about Ms Giuffre's claims that in 2001, she had dined with him, danced with him at a nightclub, and went on to have sex with him at the house of a friend of the prince in Belgravia, central London.
The prince replied: "I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever."
When asked once more whether he remembered meeting Ms Giuffre, the prince said: "No."

Her name wasn’t GIUERFE then! It was Roberts?
Thank you. I was about to say the same thing.
What is “the side”?
Anyhow he may claim not to remember her, but there’re photos.
She certainly can’t prove the sex - unless there is some sort of evidence, eg a video etc...
Jeffrey Epstein did NOT kill himself!

There is a rumor going about the Epstein Did Not Kill Himself. Just in case you hadn’t heard :-)
Yes old chap, you let the side down, not cricket you know, a sticky wicket eh? And Epstein did not kill himself.
You raped a minor dude.
Hardly “letting” a side down.
Likely it was “number one girl. You like her before.”
Prince Andrew did not kill himself.
Is that all hes ashamed of? Cmon, go ahead and spill the beans. It will be good for your soul, that is if you still have one.
He’s trying to do damage control. Shape the narrative a little in the other direction and hoping now real evidence ever comes out.
The secret photos show him leaning out the door and looking very paranoid about being photographed. Andrew seems like a complete sleaze.
Definitely damage control. He’d probably be better claiming he was told they were all over 18, and that Epstein was blackmailing him.

What side is that? The pedophile ring?
‘I have no recollection’ is not a definitive denial so if evidence emerges he’s relatively safe with this narrative.
Ciaramella is the guy that offed Epstein...that is why the Democrats have him in the witness protection program.
