A Prince Andrew sex tape may allegedly exist of the British royal’s sexual encounters with an underage prostitute who worked for his good friend, financier Jeffrey Epstein. According to a new report, hidden cameras were within the walls of Epstein’s many extravagant homes to record sex acts. This is presenting the possibility that a secret video could link the prince to the woman known as “Jane Doe 3” — 17 at the time she allegedly hooked up with Andrew, U.K.’s Daily Mirror reports Saturday.
Daily Mirror explains that in 2008, a Florida lawsuit against Epstein suggested cameras were hidden everywhere in his homes, including bedrooms, where orgies and other salacious sex acts were carried out.
The woman who claims she slept with Prince Andrew is now 30-years-old and her name is Virginia Roberts. It was between 1999 and 2002 when Roberts claims she had relations with the prince. She says Epstein “forced” her to sleep with the Duke of York three different times when she was 17 in London, New York and the U.S. Virgin Islands. She adds that the age of consent in Florida at the time was 18.
In 2008, Epstein was sentenced 18 months to prison after he pleaded guilty to solicitation for prostitution. It is alleged he had secret images on a computer in his Palm Beach mansion. Andrew was a frequent visitor at the mansion, the report continues.
The “Sunday People” section of the newspaper reveals that the 2008 court papers consisted of additional information that may point to the possibility of a Prince Andrew sex tape existing.
“Some of the photographs in the defendant’s possession were taken with hidden cameras set up in [Epstein’s] home in Palm Beach. On the Day of his arrest, police found two hidden cameras and photographs of underage girls on a computer in the defendant’s home. [He] may have taken lewd photographs of Jane Doe 102 with his hidden cameras and transported [them] to his other residences and elsewhere.”
It emphasizes that the prince wasn’t aware of Roberts being an underage sex slave. Roberts notes that there wasn’t anything romantic about the times she had sex with the prince, but it wasn’t forced, either.
A Buckingham Palace spokesman strongly denies allegations against Prince Andrew in this scandal, calling it “false and without any foundation,” Fox News reports.
“It is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with [the woman].”
Fox News observes that it’s unusual for palace officials to comment on allegations or accusations against the royals.
Is it likely that a sex tape of Prince Andrew exists? Roberts further claims that Epstein wanted details of her sexual encounters with the prince to “blackmail” him. So, if the rumors are at all true, it’s entirely possible a secret video is buried somewhere.
