The palace emphatically denied the allegations, saying: “The allegations made are false and without any foundation.”
"I was a paedophile's top girl, being trained up for a British prince," Virginia told New Idea, alleging that she was Epstein's "sex slave" for four years from the age of 15.
"He trained me to do whatever a man wanted. I would do anything to keep Jeffrey happy and keep my place as his number one girl."
Virginia says she was flown to London from the US as a “gift” for Andrew.
“It was made clear to me that my job was to do whatever pleased him,” she says.
She even had Epstein take a happy snap of her first meeting with the prince before things took a darker turn.
"He [Andrew] got me a cocktail from the bar and then asked me to dance.
"He was groping me. He kept touching my breasts and my a**e," she claims.
"He was not my type, but I'd been trained not only to not show my emotions, but to do what he wanted.
"He started licking my toes, between my toes, the arches of my feet.
"And then we went into the bedroom and he proceeded to make love to me, so to speak."
Andrew’s friendship with Epstein had long raised concerns in the palace.
The pair remained in contact after the billionaire served just 13 months in prison following his 2008 conviction for soliciting sex from an underage girl – and even Andrew's ex-wife Sarah Ferguson borrowed money off Epstein to help pay off her debts.
Not surprisingly, the royal family became outraged when Andrew was indirectly implicated in Epstein’s sex crime allegations, which first surfaced during an interview in 2011 and then detailed in court papers filed in 2015.
“All these claims have been around for years and Andrew said he’d dealt with them, so they thought the whole unsavoury business had gone away,” a royal insider told New Idea.
“But they were wrong. The Queen is furious Andrew has thrown the family into this sordid crisis.
"Other royal members of the family, especially Anne and Charles, are angry with Andrew for bringing shame on them all."
