Over the past year, Prince Andrew has been facing questions over his ties to the late Epstein, a wealthy 66-year-old American who took his own life while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
Last weekend, Queen Elizabeth II's 59-year-old son discussed his relationship to Epstein and the sexual assault accusations against Epstein in an interview with BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis.

The Duke of York has faced a great deal of backlash since the interview, including having his alibi challenged by medical experts.
