Palace Responds to Video Showing Prince Andrew at Epstein Mansion

Daily Beast - 08-19


Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, has issued a statement for the first time since he became embroiled in the Jeffrey Epstein sex scandal. The royal broke his silence following the release of new footage that shows him staying at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion in 2010—two years after Epstein became a convicted pedophile. “The Duke of York has been appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement to The Daily Telegraph. “His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behaviour is abhorrent.”
