Billionaire financier Epstein killed himself in prison last month while awaiting trial for underage sex trafficking. In her first interview since his death, the 35-year-old yesterday recalled her alleged time with Prince Andrew. Speaking to US broadcaster NBC, alongside five other victims of Epstein's, the American - now known as Virginia Giuffre - said of the Duke: "He was an abuser. He was a participant."
She told how she was flown to London where she was pictured with the prince, 59, inside the home of Epstein's alleged "madam", Ghislaine Maxwell.
Discussing the first of three occasions she claims to have had sex with Andrew, she said: "The first time in London, I was so young.
"Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and said, 'You're gonna meet a prince today'. I didn't know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to that prince.
"We went out to club Tramp. Prince Andrew got me alcohol, it was in the VIP section, I'm pretty sure it was vodka.
