Prince Andrew’s Accuser Recounts the Night They Met in Netflix’s ‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’
Though he was dubbed the “Playboy Prince” long ago, Prince Andrew remained an untouchable force in the British royal family for nearly six decades. Though there were rustlings of some alleged questionable actions and activities that the Duke of York participated throughout his life, none of it truly rose to the surface until late 2019.
In July 2019, one of Prince Andrew‘s close friends, convicted sex-offender, Jeffery Epstein hanged himself in prison amid a sex trafficking investigation against him. This pushed people to dig further into Epstein’s past and into his connections with some A-listers, including Prince Andrew.
Epstein and the Duke of York had been friends since the late ’90s and their friendship continued even after Epstein was convicted of soliciting sex with a minor in 2008. Now, one of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, is accusing the prince of having sex with her as a minor and a new Netflix doc is recounting the night they allegedly met.
Prince Andrew refuses to address the scandal
In November 2019, Prince Andrew stepped away from royal life, following a horrible interview with BBC’s News Night where he said he did not regret his friendship with Epstein.
Instead of cooperating with the FBI investigation that landed Epstein in jail at the time of his death, the Duke of York has gone on the defense. “Prince Andrew has provided zero cooperation,” an insider told the Associated Press. “The Duke is more than happy to talk to the FBI but he hasn’t been approached by them yet. He is angry about the way this is being portrayed.”
Netflix’s ‘Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich’ paints Prince Andrew in a terrible light
Amid Epstein’s death many women have come forward to reveal the reported grooming and sexual abuse that went on. Giuffre has alleged that Prince Andrew was an “abuser” and a “participant.” The prince has categorically denied all of Gunthries’s claims even though there is photo evidence that the pair did meet.
Now Netflix’s new documentary, Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich presents a witness who claims Prince Andrew visited Epstein’s private island, called “Pedophile Island” by the press, on numerous occasions and was at many of the late banker’s infamous parties.

According to the documentary, Prince Andrew allegedly made jokes with Giuffre about her age. “Ghislaine [Maxwell] has this favorite guessing game that she does, she goes to Prince Andrew ‘How old do you think Virginia is?’ And he said 17,” Giuffre says in the film. “She’s like, ‘Oh you’re right!’ They made a little joke about it. He was like, ‘My daughters aren’t far from your age. My daughters are a little bit younger than you.'”
In the documentary, Giuffre recounts the first evening she was allegedly assaulted by Prince Andrew.
“We went out for the night, club Tramp in London,” she recalled. “He dances and he’s profusely sweating over me and it was disgusting. We get back to the townhouse, go upstairs. I have this little Kodak yellow camera and I ask Jeffrey to take a photo of me and Prince Andrew together. Ghislaine Maxwell is literally just right behind me. She tells me, you’re going to have to do for him what you do for Jeffrey, and it hit me. Right after that photo was taken I was sexually abused by Prince Andrew for the first time.”
Prince Andrew has not yet commented on the film.
