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.

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.

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.

  Amazon Prime's Premier League fixtures could herald a new age of on demand football. So what will change? Nearly 30 years of Sky Sports televising the Premier League has transformed our habits as football consumers. The potential of a model that airs all games would change even more. But is that what we want?Amazon have paid £90m for the rights to 20 fixtures each season for the next three years. That’s certainly not the limit of Jeff Bezos’ financial reach and, most likely, it’s not the extent of his company’s ambitions in the market either.

As Prince Andrew steps back from his public duties, Panorama hears from the victims of his former friend and convicted child sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein. The Duke of York has been widely criticised for not expressing sympathy for these women during his television interview with the BBC’s Newsnight

“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.”

But Daniel Janner QC warned that the BBC runs the risk of a trial by media of the duke.

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”.

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 ”.

VINE: Panorama works closely with Professor Barry Guntha, a psychologist from the University of JULIE JONES: He normally gets up round about 7 o'clock in the morning, comes downstairs and I think maybe the telly does influence the way that they play. It 's not been as bad as I thought it would

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.”

LONDON — “I have learnt that many of my past beliefs came from my misinterpretations of Islam,” the young man wrote to his probation officers. Last Friday, the man who wrote those words, 28-year-old Usman Khan, traveled unsupervised from his probation hostel in England’s West Midlands to London, where he carried out a deadly terrorist attack after having participated in a conference on prison rehabilitation.
