‘A woman who claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew on three separate occasions – including at an orgy – has said that she will ‘not be bullied back into silence’ and ‘victimised’.
‘Jane Doe 3’ alleges that she was loaned out to Prince Andrew and other friends by Jeffrey Epstein, an American billionaire who has been convicted of soliciting underage prostitution.
She is said to have been 17 at the time of the alleged meetings, meaning she was underage according to Florida law.
In court documents she accuses Epstein, the Prince, his friend the socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, and – among others – the leading American defence lawyer Alan Dershowitz of abusing her when she was underage.
Her lawyers, who are also representing another woman, ‘Jane Doe 4’, also told an American court that Prince Andrew had lobbied the US government over Epstein’s case.
The Prince today issued a comprehensive denial of the allegations, with Buckingham Palace insisting any suggestion of underage sex on his part is ‘categorically untrue’.’
