After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's jet scandal, Prince Andrew's interview discussing Jeffrey Epstein appeared to put another unfavorable spotlight on the royal family. "I know what happened, and there's only one of us telling the truth, and I know that's me", Ms Giuffre told BBC Panorama in clips released by the broadcaster.

The woman who says she was a trafficking victim made to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17 is asking the British public to support her quest for justice.

A Panaroma programme entitled The Prince and the Epstein Scandal will see the American tell her story and reveal new details about her time with Epstein, the BBC said.

Prince Andrew - the Queen's third child - has been facing questions over his ties to Epstein, a USA financier who took his own life in August awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges. The FBI and the Department of Justice's inspector general are investigating the circumstances of his death. While Roberts has said Andrew was sweating heavily during the visit, Andrew told the BBC that that would have been impossible because at the time he suffered from a medical condition that prevented him from sweating.

Epstein was a wealthy financier with many powerful friends.

"He knows what happened".

"It didn't happen." Prince Andrew told the BBC last month.

Last month The Sun reported there is renewed talk behind palace walls the Queen will retire in 18 months when she turns 95, the age at which Prince Philip withdrew from public life.

She told the BBC's Panorama in an interview due to be shown on BBC One at 9pm tonight that 'The people on the inside are going to keep coming up with these ridiculous excuses - like his arm was elongated or the photo was doctored, or he came to NY to break up with Jeffrey Epstein.

Prince Andrew has vehemently denied all of Giuffre's allegations. A judge ruled that her allegations about the Duke should be struck from the record.

"I think there's irrefutable evidence she wasn't a child and doesn't qualify", Howard Cooper said of Giuffre's plan to file under the CVA.

It went viral on Twitter, with many people frantically asking whether Her Majesty had passed away.

Elizabeth Alexandra Mary, also known as Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, is not dead, despite some weird rumors to the contrary that popped up due to a very unusual Whatsapp group message.

Mrs Giuffre said she was taken to London's Tramp nightclub by Epstein and Ms Maxwell in 2001 where she claims she was asked to dance by the Duke.

She said the prince asked her for a dance at a nightclub, telling Panorama he was "the most ugly dancer I've ever seen in my life".

In a statement on November 21 Prince Andrew said said he regrets his association with Epstein and that he "deeply sympathises" with his victims. Speaking with that outlet, Christopher Wilson, a royal biographer, said he had been "the guiding hand, the disciplinarian" and added that Buckingham Palace had been rudderless in his absence.
