Prince Andrew has enlisted the help of one of Britain’s top defence barristers, QC William Clegg, after being accused of sleeping with an under-age ‘sex slave’, the Mail has learned.
In a passionate rebuttal on the Today show on Tuesday, the Duchess of York said that she was standing by ‘my best friend and my best ex-husband ever’ amid the allegations.
Ghislaine Maxwell stands accused of ‘procuring’ girls, including American Virginia Roberts, for Jeffrey Epstein. Roberts said she met Prince Andrew at Maxwell’s house. Maxwell has denied involvement.
Sarah Kellen, 34, and Nadia Marchinova, 29, who both pleaded their right to silence under the US Fifth Amendment when asked if the royal had sex with teenage girls, have reinvented themselves.
The London Mayor said he had witnessed the Duke of York ‘get out there and sell this country’ and after our days of torrid headlines for the prince after the allegations emerged in court papers on Friday.

Virginia Roberts also plans to name American politicians, business executives, foreign presidents and a well-known Prime Minister she claims Jeffrey Epstein forced her to sleep with.

The Mail on Sunday publishes the most complete story yet of how Virginia Roberts, known in court papers as Jane Doe 3, was exploited by Epstein’s shuttered world of seedy sex and influence.
A woman, identified only as Jane Doe #3, made claims in an extraordinary legal allegation that said she was ‘forced’ to have sex with Prince Andrew and that he had lobbed the US government.
The case is connected to allegations against Jeffrey Epstein, who has been convicted of soliciting sex with an underage girl. Prince Andrew denies any impropriety.
