  Prince Andrew Says He Has ‘No Recollection’ Of Meeting Jeffrey Epstein Accuser Virginia Roberts The Duke of York has said he has “no recollection” of meeting the woman who claims she was forced into a sexual encounter with him. Prince Andrew also said that he “let the side down” over his relationship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein as he gave a “no holds barred” interview with BBC Two’s Newsnight programme. During the interview, filmed at Buckingham Palace on Thursday, the duke faced questions about his links with the disgraced financier, who was found dead in his prison cell in New York earlier this year where he was being held on sex trafficking charges.

A lawyer for victims of Jeffrey Epstein says the duke should volunteer to be interviewed. Gloria Allred questioned Prince Andrew 's pledge that he would assist with probes into the convicted sex offender "if required". She urged him to contact US authorities "without conditions and without delay".

"And he should have his staffers and security personnel also talk to law enforcement, because they could help us determine where he was when he was there and what they saw. So all of that is extremely important so we can get to the bottom of what happened."

On Wednesday evening, the duke had said he "deeply sympathises" with Epstein's victims and is "willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required".

He added that he had "asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission".

"I continue to unequivocally regret my ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein," he said.

His announcement comes days after a widely-criticised TV interview which saw him accused of "utterly lacking in compassion" for the victims of Epstein, who killed himself earlier this year.

Epstein was awaiting trial accused of trafficking girls as young as 14 for sex and had previously served time in prison in 2008 for prostituting underage girls.

In his interview with BBC's Newsnight, the duke had claimed it was "convenient " for him to stay at Epstein's house in 2010 and he thought it was "the honourable and right thing to do" after visiting to end their friendship.

He also said he had "no recollection" of meeting Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims she was trafficked by Epstein and forced to have sex with a number of his associates, including Andrew, when she was 17.

He denied this, saying he had been in Pizza Express in Woking that afternoon with his daughter, Princess Beatrice, and was at home that evening.

He also suggested a photo of him and Ms Roberts Giuffre together at the London home of Ghislaine Maxwell may have been doctored.

Ms Bloom said: "It's a new age where we expect, at a minimum, compassion for the victims.

"And Prince Andrew didn't show that at all [in the interview], even when he was asked. He just didn't show it. He didn't have it in him. And I think that's where he's been attacked the most.

"He also was terribly inconsistent on some of his statements, which make him look not credible. That's a problem because he's accused of sexual assault himself."

A Sky News poll found that just 6% of the public believed Andrew's explanation of his friendship with Epstein.

Firms including telecoms giant BT and bank Barclays are among a number of multimillion-pound businesses, universities and charities which have since distanced themselves from the royal.

With Jeffrey Epstein dead, prosecutors are focusing on his "co-conspirators". But a key figure has gone missing."Let me assure you that this case will continue on against anyone who was complicit with Epstein," US Attorney General William Barr said.
