Prince Andrew Reacts to His Friend Andrew Epstein's Sexual Abuse Allegations

Prince Andrew was reportedly friends with Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of sex trafficking underage girls and young women, and now he has released a statement after a video emerged of the royal in Epstein‘s NYC apartment in 2010.

“The Duke of York has been appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement to People. “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.”

Prince Andrew was himself accused of sexual misconduct by a woman while they were both at Epstein‘s residence in 2001.

If you don’t know, Prince Andrew is the father of Princess Eugenie of York and Princess Beatrice of York. He is eighth in line for the throne.

Epstein died by suicide earlier this month in jail.
