Prince Andrew hasn’t been completely abandoned by the royal family as his alleged ties to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein once again make headlines.
Andrew’s daughter, Princess Beatrice, was seen driving herself to her disgraced father’s Windsor home.
Beatrice, 35, flashed a broad smile as she entered the gates of the Duke of York’s estate, which he shares with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.
The couple have been divorced for years but live together in the 30-room mansion — which Prince Andrew could lost his private security funding, and be forced out of the home, of as a result of the revived scandal, according to a recent report.
Andrew’s name resurfaced amid thousands of court documents released in relation to the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, in which he was accused of groping Epstein staffer Johanna Sjoberg in 2001 when she was 20.
The royal, who has repeatedly denied wrongdoing, has also been accused of sexually abusing then 17-year-old Virginia Giuffre.
What we know about the Jeffrey Epstein list of 170 associates
- On Wednesday, documents were released naming 170 associates of accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. The list included Michael Jackson, magician David Copperfield, Stephen Hawking, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and former President Bill Clinton — who an Epstein victim said “likes them young, referring to girls.”
- Disgraced royal Prince Andrew, a known friend of Epstein, was named in the documents and was previously sued by Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, who accused Andrew of sexual misconduct toward her. According to one royal family expert, the Firm “will stand beside” the Duke of York “no matter what.”
- Epstein’s former attorney and friend Alan Dershowitz defended the late multimillionaire sex offender’s associates, saying: “None of us knew about his private life that he kept so secret.” Dershowitz, who is on the list, added that no one should be automatically convicted in the court of public opinion simply for showing up in court documents.
- Epstein’s brother, Mark Epstein, told The Post that the ex-business mogul said he could have upended the 2016 election over what he knew about both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton: “Here’s a direct quote: ‘If I said what I know about both candidates, they’d have to cancel the election.’ That’s what Jeffrey told me in 2016.”
- Only some of the 170 names and their relationships to Epstein have been released. The remainder of the documents will likely become public record throughout the next week.
