Allegations about Prince Andrew made in U.S. legal case

The allegation surfaced in a cache of legal papers unsealed by a U.S. judge in a defamation case involving a British socialite alleged to have supplied Jeffrey Epstein with underage girls.

"There's a whole bunch of them - it's just hard for me to remember", Giuffre said, according to the documents.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the youngest child of publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, had moved to the United States after her father's death and became a close associate of Epstein.

Ms Giuffre claimed Ms Maxwell had procured her "for sexual activities" for Epstein.

But even then, in 2008 Epstein pleaded guilty to only two prostitution charges - one for solicitation of a minor.

Epstein was previously arrested over a series of allegations of sexual misconduct from at least 2002 to 2005. Governor Richardson has never been to Mr. Epstein's residence in the Virgin Islands.

Therein Giuffre claims that she and another of Epstein and Maxwell recruited women of "sexual acts" have done with the younger brother of Prince Charles (70). "Governor Richardson has never met Ms. Giuffre", reports stated.

The connections were revealed in a cache of almost 2,000 documents that federal prosecutors with the Southern District of NY unsealed Friday.

Epstein allegedly told another of his accusers that he required "three orgasms a day" - that "it was biological, like eating".

Giuffre said Maxwell instructed her to take off her clothes and give oral sex to Epstein the first time she met him after bringing her to Epstein's Florida home near Mar-a-Lago with the expectation she would be trained as a masseuse.

The US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit unsealed the documents, ruling that the judge in the defamation case had improperly sealed hundreds of filings.

Documents filed by Giuffre's lawyers cite a deposition of Joanna Sjoberg, who also accused Maxwell of bringing her to Epstein. The records released Friday have been under seal as part of that case, for which Maxwell failed to obtain a summary dismissal in 2017.

In a rare statement when news that the documents would be unsealed broke, the Palace released a statement which said: "It is emphatically denied that The Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts [Giuffre]".

The document also contains a photo which, Guiffre's attorneys say, shows Andrew "with his hand around Ms Giuffre's bare waist while she was a minor child, while posing with [Maxwell], inside [Maxwell's] house in London".

Epstein's ring of powerful men, for whom he helped facilitate women to have sex with, included current US President Donald Trump and former US President Bill Clinton. "He'd laugh and tell Jeffrey, 'You've got the life'".

He owns a nine-story $77m mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side, a $6.8 million mansion in Palm Beach, an $18 million ranch in New Mexico, the private Caribbean island, a helicopter, a Gulfstream IV jet and a Boeing 727. Epstein's lawyers did not respond to requests for comment.
