Prince Andrew to Cancel Royal Duties over Ties to Sex Offender Jeffrey Epstein

HeadlineNov 21, 2019

In Britain, Prince Andrew said Wednesday he will withdraw from public duties, amid mounting public anger over his longtime friendship with deceased serial sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein. In a BBC interview that aired Sunday, Andrew denied accusations by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who says she was sexually trafficked by Epstein and forced to have sex with the prince when she was 17 years old. A photo released by Giuffre shows Prince Andrew standing beside her with his hand around her bare stomach, with Epstein’s longtime confidante Ghislaine Maxwell in the background.
