Video 'shows Prince Andrew inside Manhattan mansion of US financier Jeffrey Epstein'

Andrew, who is fourth in line to the throne, is among the rich and powerful who have been swept up by their ties - past or present - to Epstein, whose death in a Manhattan jail cell earlier this month was ruled a suicide.

The well-connected American financier, whose circle of friends and acquaintances included a long list of politicians, socialites, and celebrities including Donald Trump before he was president and former US President Bill Clinton.

The statement was released after the Mail on Sunday newspaper obtained a December 6, 2010, video appearing to show Andrew inside Epstein's opulent Manhattan home as the prince waves goodbye to a young woman.

Prince Andrew allegedly "vowed to remain loyal" to his friend Jeffrey Epstein after the disgraced billionaire was jailed for having sex with a minor.

The source said they 'phoned Andrew and told him, "You can not have a relationship with Jeffrey"' after Epstein was convicted.

Epstein first came under investigation in 2005 after police in Palm Beach, Fla., received reports he had sexually abused underage girls in his mansion there.

At the time, the duke was the U.K.'s special representative for trade, a role he quit the following year.

"His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behavior is abhorrent", the statement continued.

A few muggy, unsettled days before a nice stretch
The high temperature will be in the mid to upper 80s under partly sunny skies, but the humidity will make it feel warmer. Showers and storms will be around during the morning, followed by some breaks of sunshine in the afternoon.

Buckingham Palace has repeatedly and strenuously denied the claims, calling them "false and without foundation".

Prince Andrew, Duke of York, attends the QIPCO King George Weekend at Ascot Racecourse, last month.

Prince Andrew briefly referred to the allegations at the Davos annual meeting in 2015, saying: "I wish to reiterate and reaffirm the statements already made on my behalf by Buckingham Palace".

Virginia Giuffre - previously Virginia Roberts - one of Epstein's alleged victims, has testified that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew in London when she was 17.

"Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue", reads the statement, according to NBC.

Mr Epstein's friendship with Prince Andrew was widely reported on by British media.

His body was discovered at the Metropolitan Correctional Centre in Manhattan, hours after a court in NY released 2,000 pages of previously sealed legal documents.
