Mrs Giuffre is pictured as a teenager with Prince Andrew in 2001. She says the photo was taken inside Ghislaine Maxwell's townhouse in London. Prince Andrew vehemently denies her claims
British police will not be taking further action after Virginia Roberts described in detail how she allegedly had sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17.
Roberts, who is now Virginia Giuffre, claimed she had sex with the Duke of York in 2001 in Ghislaine Maxwell's London townhouse after the royal gave her vodka at a nightclub.
Mrs Giuffre, 35, aired the claim on NBC's Dateline that she was woken up by Ghislane and told 'you're gonna meet a prince today' before Andrew gave her alcohol in the VIP section of Club Tramp.
In her first TV interview Mrs Giuffre sat down with five other Jeffrey Epstein accusers, including three who have never spoken publicly before, for an edition of Dateline to be aired in the early hours of tomorrow, UK time.
In previously reported court documents, she claimed they went back to Ghislaine's townhouse where she and Prince Andrew engaged in 'foreplay' in the bath and then had sex in the bedroom where she was sleeping.
Prince Andrew has repeatedly and vehemently denied Giuffre's accusations, calling them 'false' and 'without foundation' and saying 'any suggestion of impropriety with under-age minors is 'categorically untrue'. There is no suggestion that Prince Andrew was aware of Epstein’s alleged activities.
MailOnline approached the Met Police following Mrs Giuffre's revelations in a teaser for her TV interview. A spokesperson said: 'As we have previously said, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) did receive an allegation of non-recent trafficking for sexual exploitation.

'Having closely examined the available evidence, the decision was made that this would not progress to a full investigation.
'As such, the matter was closed. We acknowledge the considerable interest and concern around this case and have revisited that decision making and believe it remains entirely appropriate.
'Therefore no further action is being taken. The Met will always take seriously any allegation concerning sexual exploitation.'
