The video was recorded after Epstein was convicted of soliciting prostitution of a minor in 2008.

Buckingham Palace said Prince Andrew is "appalled" over the Jeffrey Epstein sex abuse claims, following the publication of images of the Duke of York at Epstein's NY home in 2010.

Epstein, 66, killed himself in his jail cell in NY earlier this month after being charged with sex trafficking.

He was known to have courted celebrity friends and acquaintances over the years, including Andrew, former United States president Bill Clinton and current U.S. president Donald Trump.

Epstein first came under investigation in 2005 after police in Palm Beach, Florida, received reports he had sexually abused underage girls in his mansion there.

Prince Andrew is trapped in a royal mess over his ties to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein - with old allegations surfacing again Monday that the British blue blood once cavorted with "a harem of adolescent girls" at the sex molester's Florida mansion.

"His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behavior is abhorrent", Buckingham Palace wrote.

China's State Council calls for Shenzhen integration with Hong Kong, Macau
Mr You called the comments "a gross violation of the spirit of the rule of law, a blatant double standard and a gross interference in China's internal affairs".

The disturbing allegations resurfaced in light of Epstein's apparent suicide in his Metropolitan Correction Center jail cell last week.

He quit his role as a United Kingdom trade envoy in 2011.

The accusation was made in documents from a 2015 defamation case.

Buckingham Palace has issued strong denials over claims from a woman who said she was forced to have under-age sex with the duke.

The court papers repeated claims that the Duke slept with Virginia Roberts, 17 at the time and one of Epstein's "sex slaves".

Buckingham Palace's statement on Sunday (local time) was its second on Prince Andrew's relationship with Mr Epstein in less than a week.

"Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue", reads the statement, according to NBC. Prince Andrew faced criticism for his friendship with the tycoon at the time, and he quit his job as United Kingdom trade envoy in 2011 as a result.

His body was discovered at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in Manhattan, hours after a court in NY released 2,000 pages of previously sealed legal documents.
