"That's the bit that… as it were, I kick myself for on a daily basis because it was not something that was becoming of a member of the Royal Family, and we try and uphold the highest standards and practices and I let the side down, simple as that."

He also said he did not recall ever meeting one of Epstein's accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who has said she was forced by Epstein to have sex with Prince Andrew.

Prince Andrew Gets Candid, and Britain Is Appalled

  Prince Andrew Gets Candid, and Britain Is Appalled When members of the British royal family consent to warts-and-all television interviews about their troubled private lives, it generally has the effect of roiling the waters rather than calming them. So when Prince Andrew set out to explain his friendship with the financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in a BBC interview broadcast Saturday night, it backfired predictably.

Prince Andrew also said that he let the British royal family . 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.

PRINCE ANDREW has given an unprecedented interview about his relationship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein . In preview clips from the Newsnight interview which will air In preview clips from the Newsnight interview which will air tomorrow, Prince Andrew says he “ let down ” the Royal Family .

"I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever," Prince Andrew told the BBC.

In clips released Friday of the interview that the BBC has billed as "no holds barred," Prince Andrew discusses his relationship with Epstein, who was long dogged by accusations of sexual abuse.

The interview, which was recorded Thursday at Buckingham Palace with the BBC's Emily Maitlis, will air in full on Saturday.

Prince Andrew was named in court documents released in August that related to a 2015 defamation lawsuit filed by one of Epstein's alleged victims against British socialite and former longtime member of the financier's inner circle, Ghislaine Maxwell.

The Duke of York, the second son of Queen Elizabeth II, has said previously that he first met Epstein in 1999 and had stayed at a number of his residences, but saw him infrequently, maybe once or twice a year.

Latest Epstein accuser calls on Prince Andrew to talk to U.S. authorities

  Latest Epstein accuser calls on Prince Andrew to talk to U.S. authorities PEOPLE-JEFFREY EPSTEIN/LAWSUIT (UPDATE 1, TV, PIX):UPDATE 1-Latest Epstein accuser calls on Prince Andrew to talk to U.S. authoritiesNEW YORK, Nov 18 (Reuters) - A woman who accuses Jeffrey Epstein of sexually abusing her as a child on Monday said Britain’s Prince Andrew should tell U.S. authorities what he knows about the financier.

Prince Andrew has said he ‘ let the side down ’ by staying with paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein after he was convicted of his crime. The royal , who is 8th in line to the throne, has come increasingly under fire over his relationship with Epstein - who died in his prison cell in August as he awaited trial.

Prince Andrew has said that he failed to uphold the standards of the royal family when he visited Jeffrey Epstein after the paedophile’s release from prison, admitting: “I let the side down , simple as that.” The prince made the statement in an interview with the BBC’s Newsnight programme, the first

"At no stage during the limited time I spent with him did I see, witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction," Andrew said in an August statement from Buckingham Palace that was emailed to NBC News. "I have said previously that it was a mistake and an error to see him after his release in 2010 and I can only reiterate my regret that I was mistaken to think that what I thought I knew of him was evidently not the real person, given what we now know."

The conviction he mentioned is apparently in reference to Epstein's plea agreement in 2008 with prosecutors in Florida under which he served 13 months of an 18-month sentence for two state prostitution charges.

Prince Andrew also said in the August statement that he has "tremendous sympathy" for all those affected by Epstein's "actions and behaviour."

Epstein, 66, died by suicide in a federal prison cell in New York City in August after he was arrested on sex trafficking charges. He faced up to 45 years in prison on allegations that he sexually abused dozens of girls as young as 14 and young women at his homes in New York and Florida from 2002 to 2005. He pleaded not guilty.

Giuffre filed the 2015 defamation suit against Maxwell. Court documents related to the suit that were released in August revealed that Giuffre said in a 2016 deposition that Epstein and Maxwell directed her to provide sexual services for a number of powerful men.

Among Giuffre's allegations is that Maxwell ordered her to have sex with Andrew, a claim that Buckingham Palace has emphatically denied, saying that "any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue."

Giuffre released a photograph in relation to her defamation lawsuit against Maxwell which shows Prince Andrew in 2001 standing in a London apartment with his hand around her bare midriff. Maxwell is also in the photo.

Giuffre's 2015 lawsuit against Maxwell was settled out of court in 2017. The documents released in August represent only a portion of the case file and offer limited context in many places.

GROVELLING Prince Andrew has apologised for his friendship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and admitted: “I A royal source close to Andrew said last night: “The Duke has been facing this horrible episode for far too long. But he ’s right about one thing – he let the side down in a mortifying manner.

PRINCE ANDREW has admitted to “kicking himself on a daily basis” for letting the Queen down with his continued friendship with disgraced financier Prince Andrew spoke out about his relationship with convicted American sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in an exclusive interview with BBC Newsnight

Giuffre's allegations against Prince Andrew were struck from the court records by a judge in April 2015. However, the judge did not rule on the veracity of the claims.

In her first television interview, which aired Sept. 20 on "Dateline," Giuffre told Savannah Guthrie she was forced to have sex with Epstein and others, including Prince Andrew.

"The first time in London, I was so young. Ghislaine woke me up in the morning and said, 'You're gonna meet a prince today," Giuffre said. "I didn't know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to that prince. And then that night Prince Andrew came to her house in London. And we went out to club Tramp. Prince Andrew got me alcohol. It was in the VIP section. I'm pretty sure it was vodka.

"Prince Andrew was like, 'Let's dance together.' And I was like, 'OK.' And we leave club Tramp. And I hop in the car with Ghislaine and Jeffrey. And Ghislaine said, 'He's coming back to the house. And I want you to do for him what you do for Epstein.' I couldn't believe it."

Giuffre also said: "I couldn't believe even royalty was involved."

Maxwell, who has not been charged with a crime, has not commented publicly on the released court documents or on any matter related to Epstein since his arrest in July. NBC News reached out to her attorney on Friday but did not immediately hear back.

In a motion to dismiss the lawsuit prior to its being settled, Maxwell's lawyers said Giuffre "produced no evidence substantiating any of her fantastical claims that she had been trafficked by Epstein, or by Maxwell, to any of these men or any others."

A deposition by another woman, Johanna Sjoberg, which was also among the court documents released in August, also refers to Prince Andrew.

Sjoberg said in her deposition that she was a college student in 2001 when Maxwell approached her on the campus of a Florida college and offered her a job working the phones for Epstein, the court documents say. Sjoberg testified that she engaged in sex acts with Prince Andrew and Giuffre inside Epstein's mansion in Manhattan.

NBC News reached out to representatives for Prince Andrew at the time the court documents were released in August but they did not return a request for comment.

Andrew's charity is being moved out of the palace following his BBC interview on Jeffrey Epstein."The Duke will continue to work on Pitch and will look at how he takes this forward outside of his public duties, and outside of Buckingham Palace," the palace said in a statement. "We recognize there will be a period of time while this transition takes place.
