Prince Andrew warned 'questions remain' on Jeffrey Epstein after new video emerges

Video 'shows Prince Andrew inside Manhattan mansion of US financier Jeffrey Epstein' Prince Andrew 'appalled' by Jeffrey Epstein's sex abuse claims

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.

Prince Andrew's statement comes after the Mail on Sunday published footage showing the duke looking out from a large door of the mansion waving goodbye to a woman after Mr Epstein leaves to get into a chauffeur-driven vehicle.

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, has said he is "appalled" by sex abuse claims directed at his friend and former financier Jeffrey Epstein.

"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", the statement said.

US financier Epstein appears in a photograph taken for the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services' sex offender registry on March 28, 2017.

Epstein, 66, killed himself in jail earlier this month while awaiting trial after being charged with sex trafficking.

The footage is believed to have been filmed in December 2010, two years after Mr Epstein pleaded guilty to charges of soliciting prostitution from girls as young as 14.

Last month, Andrew stepped down as a United Kingdom trade envoy in what was widely seen as fallout from the Epstein scandal.

Virginia Roberts alleged in court papers in Florida that she was forced to have sex with Andrew when she was 17, which is under the age of consent in the state. "The fact that Buckingham Palace has released a statement shows they are very, very keen now to create as much distance as possible between the Duke and Epstein".

A spokeswoman for New York City Chief Medical Examiner Aja Worthy-Davis confirmed on Friday that an autopsy had concluded that Epstein's cause of death was suicide by hanging.

The two reportedly first met in the late 1990s, introduced by Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite who accusers say was Epstein's girlfriend and madam.

The Mail on Sunday said the video of Andrew, who was then the UK's Special Representative for International Trade, was taken less than hour after Epstein had left the £63 million mansion with a blonde woman.

Buckingham Palace has said Guiffre's allegations are "false and without any foundation" and that any suggestion Andrew ever engaged in sex with underage minors is "categorically untrue".

Last week, his lawyers said: 'It is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts.
