Prince Andrew ‘underage sex slave’ claims she was paid £10K after he bedded her
Prince’s furious denial as woman claims, “we got into the bath, he licked my toes. The sex wasn’t like love, more getting the business done”
The American who alleges she had sex with Prince Andrew at an “underage” orgy today claims he licked her toes while sharing a bath.
She also describes how the two then romped in a bedroom, saying: “It wasn’t like rape. But it wasn’t like love either. It was more like, ‘I’m getting my business done’.”
The intimate details have emerged following the lodging of a bombshell lawsuit in Florida in which she claims she was pimped out as a sex slave at the age of 17 to the Duke of York by his billionaire paedophile banker friend Jeffrey Epstein.
She also says that after the first of three alleged encounters with the Duke, which ended with the orgy, she was paid £10,000 in cash by Epstein.
There is no suggestion that Prince Andrew thought she was underage at any time or was being pimped by his pal as a sex slave or that he knew she had been paid.
The 29-year-old woman’s sensational claims, filed in a court last Tuesday, refer to her only as Jane Doe #3.
But in an interview she gave to a National Enquirer journalist in March 2011 she identified herself as married mum-of-three Virginia Roberts and provided a graphic account of her supposed time with Andrew.
Buckingham Palace last night vehemently denied the claims.
A spokesman said: “It is emphatically denied that HRH The Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts. The allegations made are false and without any foundation.”
Virginia claims the first time she met the Duke, 54, was when she accompanied pervert Epstein on a six-week trip to Europe and North Africa in 2001.
While in London they reportedly visited the billionaire’s friend, Ghislaine Maxwell, daughter of disgraced tycoon Robert Maxwell.
Little has been revealed about the events that took place in London – where she would have been over the legal age for sex. But Virginia’s interview provides alleged details of how she was seduced by the Prince.
After Andrew allegedly arrived at Maxwell’s flat, Virginia says the prince was asked to guess her age.
“Ghislaine played one of her favourite guessing games,” Virginia claims.
“She asked Andrew how old he thought I was, and he guessed 17 and they all kind of laughed about it, and Ghislaine made a joke that I was getting too old for Jeffrey.”
Later on Virginia claims she and Andrew went for dinner then on to Tramp nightclub.
Recalling the evening, she claimed: “He got me a cocktail from the bar and then asked me to dance. He was groping me. He touched my breasts and my ass.
“He was not my type, but I’d been trained not only to not show my emotions but to do what was wanted. After about an hour and a half, we drove to Ghislaine’s.”
She claims she started undressing and the Prince undressed too and they both got into a bath.
“He started licking my toes, between my toes, the arches of my feet. And then we went into the bedroom and he proceeded to make love to me, so to speak. He wasn’t rude.
“But it wasn’t like love either,” she said. “It was more like, ‘I’m getting my business done’.”
In the morning, she said Ghislaine – who denies the claims against her – told her, ‘You did well. He had fun’.”
It was shortly after this point that Roberts said she was paid money by Epstein.
A photo said to have been taken at the time showed Andrew standing in his shirtsleeves with an arm round Virginia’s bare midriff.
Her next meeting with the Duke was at Easter that year when she says she was ordered to Epstein’s mansion in New York.
Once inside she claims she was told to escort Andrew to a room used for “erotic massages”. She said they had sex on the massage table.
She alleges she was summoned to have a third and final encounter with Andrew at an orgy on Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands.
She claims she flew there with Jeffrey and Ghislaine and seven Russian girls and that they were told to assemble in a big cabana.
She says when she walked in, Andrew and Jeffrey were sitting in chairs.
She said: “Jeffrey directed us with hand gestures to start undressing and then we were instructed to start kissing and touching each other. Jeffrey and the prince were laughing and then they stripped and I performed a sex act on Andrew. There was a dinner the next day and then Andrew was gone.”
Virginia was 15 when she met Epstein. She was working as a changing room assistant at a club in Palm Beach, Florida, owned by Donald Trump.
She alleged she was approached by Maxwell who offered her the chance to work for a wealthy “gentleman” who needed a travelling masseuse.
The teenager then visited banker Epstein’s nearby mansion where she said she was told to strip and straddle his naked body. She claims he paid her £130 a time for what he called an “erotic massage”. Virginia’s legal action comes as part of a long-running sexual abuse lawsuit against Epstein.
She alleges in court papers that she was used as a “sex slave” by the convicted sex offender between 1999 and 2002 and on certain occasions “forced to have sexual relations with this prince when she was a minor”.
It is disputed she was a minor when she claims to have had sex with the Duke. Andrew and the disgraced banker had been long-standing friends.
The 61-year-old billionaire once stayed for a weekend party at Sandringham, and was a guest at the Queen’s birthday party in 2000 at Windsor. In 2001 he holidayed with the Prince in Thailand, when Andrew was snapped surrounded by topless women on a yacht.
But in 2008 Epstein was convicted of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution and jailed for 18 months.
Despite the conviction and to the huge embarrassment of Buckingham Palace it failed to stop the Prince visiting his friend in New York following the disgraced banker’s release.
The pair were spotted strolling through Central Park together, sparking anger which eventually may have led to Andrew stepping down from his role as Britain’s trade envoy.
However, last week was the first time he has been named in a court document. It is alleged he took part in sexual activity with one of the young women claimed to have been trafficked by the American. Epstein served just over a year in jail before being released.
It later emerged the 61-year-old had secretly reached a non-prosecution deal months before his conviction with the US Justice Department that spared him a heavier punishment.
Claims against the Duke of York by Jane Doe #3 came in her bid to join three other women as part of a lawsuit against US prosecutors for violating their rights.
In the lawsuit Maxwell is alleged to have helped Andrew’s “abuse” of the girl, after helping Epstein to convert her “into what is commonly referred to as a “sex slave”. Maxwell has denied the claims. Last night Prince Andrew was holed up in a luxury Swiss ski chalet in the posh village of Verbier. The Prince is on a family holiday along with ex-wife Fergie.
Their daughters Beatrice and Eugenie are believed to be there with friends. As Andrew remained unseen, a Harvard law professor named alongside the Duke of York in the Florida court documents said the woman who has made claims against them “should not be believed”.
Alan Dershowitz told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “My only feeling is if she’s lied about me, she should not be believed about anyone else.”
