Panorama’s investigation into sex allegations surrounding the Duke of York has been described by one royal writer as “about as bad as it gets for Andrew”.

Penny Junor said the duke’s accuser, Virginia Giuffre, came across as a more sympathetic character compared with his own Newsnight interview.

But she warned there was no way to know which one was telling the truth.

Ms Giuffre, in the interview on BBC One on Monday evening, claimed she was trafficked by since-disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein and forced to have sex with Andrew when she was a teenager, which the duke categorically denies.

  More pressure on Prince Andrew after alleged victim on TV LONDON (AP) — Prince Andrew was missing when his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, hosted NATO leaders at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening, but he was the focus of renewed scrutiny as allegations of sexual misconduct received wide attention on British TV. Andrew, who has stepped down from royal duties because of his involvement with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, was the subject of a BBC documentary broadcast Monday night in which he was accused of having sex with a 17-year-old American trafficked by Epstein.President Donald Trump declined to offer an opinion when asked about the case earlier Tuesday, saying only that he didn’t know Andrew but that it was a “very tough story.

Prince Andrew told Newsnight: "I didn't sweat at the time because I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenaline in the Prince Andrew told Newsnight: "Nobody can prove whether or not that photograph has been doctored but I don't recollect that photograph ever being taken."

She said Andrew was “the most hideous dancer I’ve ever seen in my life” and “his sweat was … raining basically everywhere”.

Ms Giuffre added: “This is not some sordid sex story. This is a story of being trafficked, this is a story of abuse and this is a story of your guys’ royalty.”

Ms Junor told the PA news agency: “This is about as bad as it gets for Andrew.

“Virginia Giuffre sounds very plausible in this interview, while most of Andrew’s excuses in his interview with Emily Maitlis were laughable.

Duke of York faces fresh scrutiny over Epstein and sex allegations

  Duke of York faces fresh scrutiny over Epstein and sex allegations BBC Panorama has aired its programme which includes an interview with Andrew’s accuser Virginia Giuffre.Andrew’s accuser Virginia Giuffre called on the British public to stand up beside her in her fight as she told BBC Panorama how the duke was “the most hideous dancer I’ve ever seen in my life” and “his sweat was … raining basically everywhere”.

In Monday’s Panorama programme Virgina Roberts - no Virgina Guiffre - 36, who claims she had sex with Andrew on three occasions when she was 17, is expected to reveal more details about her time with him. "He knows it has the potential to get much worse and is taking it very, very seriously."

A PANORAMA interview with Epstein victim Virginia Roberts will have “ramifications” for Prince Andrew , it is claimed. A TV source said: “If people thought Newsnight was a disaster for the duke this is really going to put the cat amongst the pigeons. " It is a fantastic programme and will cause

“She also comes across as a much more sympathetic character so viewers will warm to her.

“This made gruelling watching and the stories these girls tell are terrifying.

“Jeffrey Epstein was a monster and if what the girls say about (socialite) Ghislaine Maxwell is true, then she was no better. Whether Andrew actually slept with Virginia Giuffre I think is still unproven.”

Ms Junor warned: “Virginia Giuffre is absolutely right that only one of them is telling the truth, but we still have no way of knowing which of them it is, and I think we should be cautious about which one we choose to believe. That has to be left to the FBI.”

Graham Smith of Republic, which campaigns for an elected head of state, said: “This interview is likely to be hugely damaging to Andrew and the royal family.

“The Queen and Charles have known about these accusations for eight years and did nothing until it became a PR disaster.

“Still the royals hide behind palace gates denying the allegations but refusing to do anything that might help law enforcement or alleged trafficking victims in the US and the UK.”

Mr Smith called on the duke to be properly investigated by British police.

“To hear that Giuffre made a complaint directly to the Metropolitan Police, and they did nothing, is scandalous,” he said.

“Are the royals above the law?  Is there any line they might cross that will lead the police to act?

“Any other person in this country, faced with such serious accusations against them, would face investigation by the police, whether the offences took place in the UK or abroad.”

He said he had no memory of the photo being taken and questioned whether it was his own hand in the image.Ms Giuffre told Panorama: “The people on the inside are going to keep coming up with these ridiculous excuses.“Like his arm was elongated or the photo was doctored, or he came to New York to break up with Jeffrey Epstein. I mean, come on, I’m calling BS on this, because that’s what it is.“He knows what happened. I know what happened and there’s only one of us telling the truth, and I know that’s me.

Andrew categorically denies the allegations. In an interview to be broadcast on BBC TV on Tuesday morning AEST, Giuffre dismissed his denials and gave details of a trip to London in 2001 when she said she was taken Ms Junor told PA Ms Giuffre’s interview was “ about as bad as it gets for Andrew ”.

The founder of Falsely Accused Individuals for Reform (Fair), which campaigns for anonymity before charge in relation to sexual offences, said: “There is a danger in the Prince Andrew case of assuming guilt by association. He is entitled to the presumption of innocence.

“Those making allegations against Prince Andrew should have their evidence forensically tested to ensure they are not motivated by false compensation claims against a lucrative estate.”

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said in response to the allegations on Panorama: “It is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts (Giuffre). Any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation.”

On the duke’s association with Epstein, the palace spokesman added: “The Duke of York unequivocally regrets his ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein’s suicide left many unanswered questions, particularly for his victims.

“The duke deeply sympathises with those affected who want some form of closure. It is his hope that, in time, they will be able to rebuild their lives.

“The duke is willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required.

“The duke has already stated that he did not see, witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest and conviction.

“He deplores the exploitation of any human being and would not condone, participate in, or encourage any such behaviour.”
