Prince Andrew has suggested that the photo of him with his arm around 17-year-old sex slave Virginia Roberts was faked and has commissioned investigators to examine it.
Andrew says his clothes in the picture, supposedly taken at Ghislaine Maxwell’s Belgravia house in March 2001, were “travelling clothes” and not what he would wear on London nights out.
But The Sun on Sunday found pictures of him in near-identical attire on a 2001 night out in the capital.
Here, we look at the Duke of York’s main arguments following his bombshell TV interview on BBC Newsnight with Emily Maitlis.
THE Prince claimed he had never been upstairs in Maxwell’s townhouse.
He said: “The photograph is taken upstairs and I don’t think I ever went upstairs in Ghislaine’s house.”
Asked if he was sure, he said: “Yeah, because the dining room and everything was on the ground floor.”
