Not only did BBC interview Prince Andrew about his relationship with Jeffery Epstein and the claims made by his accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre, but they also spoke with Roberts Giuffre.
In preparation for the one-hour special on BBC One next Monday, which was recorded before Andrew’s interview was aired, Roberts tells her side of the story which includes alleging that she slept with the prince multiple times.
“It was a really scary time in my life,” Roberts Giuffre tells the programme.
“He knows what happened, I know what happened. And there’s only one of us telling the truth,” she added.
Prince Andrew has denied that he ever met a young Roberts Giuffre and alleges a picture of the two of them has been Photoshopped. In court documents, Roberts Giuffre claims that she was forced to have sex with Andrew three times, including when she was underage.
Other claims from Roberts Giuffre include that “Madame” Ghislaine Maxwell procured her into becoming a “sex slave” for Epstein.
Buckingham Palace has denied the allegations, calling them “false and without any foundation.” However, after Prince Andrew’s interview failed to provide any clarity and only created more answers than questions, he was forced to step down from royal duties.
“The Prince and the Epstein Scandal” will air on BBC One at 4 p.m. ET on Dec. 2.
