"So I said, 'Oh well I can manage that.

During the interview, Prince Andrew said he had met Epstein through his former girlfriend.

He said: "I met through his girlfriend back in 1999 and I had known her since she was in university in the UK. It would be to some extent a stretch to say we [Epstein and I] were close friends.

"I had a lot of opportunities to go to the United States but I didn't have much time with him. I saw him once or twice a year, perhaps three times a year."

Asked if he trusted Epstein, he answered: "I probably did. I don't go into a friendship looking for the wrong thing if you understand me. I want to find out, I want to learn. You have to remember I was transitioning out of the Navy at the time I wanted to find more about what was going on."

He said: "There was no indication to me or anyone else that was what he was doing.

"When I saw him in the US, or when I was staying at his house in the UK there was no indication of what he was doing.

"At the time I was patron of the NSPCC Full Stop campaign so I was close up about getting rid of abuse to children. I know what the things were to look for but I never made that connection."

PRINCE ANDREW broke his silence amid allegations of sex with a minor during his friendship with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein. Speaking to BBC Newsnight , the Duke of York said: “No and without putting too fine a point on it, if you’re a man it is a positive act to have sex with somebody.

Asked if he regretted his friendship with Epstein, he said he did not.

He said: "The people I met and the opportunities that I was given to learn either by him or because of him were actually very useful.

"We weren't that close. Yes I would stay in his house but because of his girlfriend, not because of him."

Addressing the accusations involving Ms Guiffre, Andrew told the BBC he had no idea how a picture of him with his arm around Ms Giuffre came about.

He added that he rarely poses for pictures, and does not give displays of affection in public.

He said: "I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever.

"I don't believe it's a picture of me in London because when I would out to... When I go out in London, I wear a suit and a tie."

The Duke added that he had been in Pizza Express with his daughter Beatrice on the day he is alleged to have had sex with Ms Guiffre.

He also rejected descriptions that he had been sweating while dancing with Ms Guiffre in Tramp nightclub.

According to the royal, it is "impossible" for him to sweat due to a medical condition caused by an overdose of adrenaline in the Falklands War.

He said: “I was at home, I was with the children, I had taken Beatrice to a Pizza Express in Woking for a party.

"Going to Pizza Express in Woking is an unusual thing for me to do, a very unusual thing for me to do.

"I've never been... I've only been to Woking a couple of times and I remember it weirdly distinctly. As soon as somebody reminded me of it, I went: 'Oh yes, I remember that'."

The royal denied ever meeting Ms Guiffre, and said he had "no message for her".

Buckingham Palace has branded the allegations "false and without any foundation" and said "any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors" by the duke was "categorically untrue".

It is the first time the duke has answered questions on his relationship with Epstein. In 2015, he used a public appearance at Davos in Switzerland to deny the claims.
