Prince Andrew has finally broken his silence regarding his connection to convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
In the interview with the BBC, Prince Andrew was asked a slew of questions pertaining to all the accusations alleged against him from Virginia Giuffre. She accused him of being on of the traffickers, sleeping with Virginia when she was a teenager. He refuted all these accusations including the idea that he was sweating all over her on the dance floor.
According to the New York Post,
“There’s a slight problem with, with, with, with the sweating,” Andrew told journalist Emily Maitlis, refuting an account by Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre, who has insisted that she was trafficked to the prince in 2001, after suffering his “sweating all over me” on a London dance floor.
Not true, Andrew insisted Saturday. “Because I have a peculiar medical condition,” Andrew told Maitlis.
“Which is that I don’t sweat, or I didn’t sweat at the time … because I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenaline in the Falklands War when I was shot at.
“And I simply — it was, it was almost impossible for me to sweat.
“And it was only because I have done a number of things in the recent past that I am starting to be able to do that again,” he added, apparently referencing sweating, but providing no further detail.
“So I’m afraid to say there’s a medical condition that says I didn’t do it.”
He was also asked about the infamous photograph of him with his arm around Virginia Giuffre when she was a teenager giving her a hug.
Prince Andrew said about the photograph,
“I’m terribly sorry, but if I, as a member of the royal family, and I have a photograph taken — and I’ve taken very, very few photographs — I am not one to, um, as it were, hug. Public displays of affection are not something that, that I do. So. That’s the best explanation I can give you.”
Based on some of his responses in the interview, I do feel like he is hiding something. There is more to the story than what he is claiming.
