Prince Andrew ‘joked’ about 17-year-old Virginia Roberts’ age before he abused her

Prince Andrew and Virginia Roberts **FILE PHOTOS**

Netflix’s Filthy Rich came out on Wednesday. Filthy Rich is the four-part docuseries about Jeffrey Epstein. The filmmakers interviewed many of Epstein’s victims on-camera about his abuses. Virginia Roberts was one of the victims who went on-camera – she’s so brave to keep discussing this and I’m sure she’s been threatened by very powerful people. Virginia spoke again about the first time she was trafficked to Prince Andrew when she was just 17 years old:

Prince Andrew allegedly made jokes about the age of his accuser Virginia Roberts and compared it to that of his daughters before going on to have sex with her, she has claimed. An astonishing new documentary into the life and crimes of sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has brought to air some new details from Miss Roberts, who recalls her first encounter meeting the prince in London.

Though Prince Andrew strongly insists he has no recollections of ever meeting Miss Roberts, in the new Filthy Rich documentary she outlines how in 2001 she met the Duke in the townhouse of Epstein’s associate Ghislaine Maxwell, before a guessing game was to be played.

She told interviewers for the series: ‘Ghislaine has this favourite guessing game that she does, she goes to Prince Andrew ‘how old do you think Virginia is?’ And he said 17. She’s like, ‘Oh you’re right!’ They made a little joke about it. He was like, ‘my daughters aren’t far from your age. My daughters are a little bit younger than you.’

As previously revealed by Miss Roberts, she then goes on to once more recall the spiral of events which saw her party in the company of the prince in a private London nightclub, before returning to Maxwell’s townhouse in the west of the city.

‘We went out for the night, club Tramp in London,’ she adds. ‘He dances and he’s profusely sweating over me and it was disgusting. We get back to the townhouse, go upstairs. I have this little Kodak yellow camera and I ask Jeffrey to take a photo of me and Prince Andrew together. Ghislaine Maxwell is literally just right behind me. She tells me, you’re going to have to do for him what you do for Jeffrey, and it hit me. Right after that photo was taken I was sexually abused by Prince Andrew for the first time.’

I believe her. I still believe her. I believe her recollection of the disgusting conversation about her age too. Of course Andrew knew that she was only 17 years old. Of course he knew that Virginia was “a gift” to him from Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. Of course he got off on raping a teenager trafficked to him.

I’ve also seen a lot of discussion about how the Cambridge-Tatler drama is being used as a distraction for Andrew’s criminal acts. Come on – it was obvious last year when the Buckingham Palace courtiers threw the Sussexes under the bus constantly to distract from Andrew, but that’s not what is happening this week. This week, Prince William and Kate f–ked up and it’s a separate issue from Andrew.

    I believe every word she says and the actions of the Royal Family in obstructing justice, using other members to take the heat off him and churning up the worse dregs of society to protect him disgust me on a visceral level.

  2. Mtec says:

    I hope this documentary gets as much traction as the Royal gossip does. I hope the media stops ignoring and tip-toeing around these crimes and the people who perpetrated them and those who were complicit in it, like Prince Andrew.

  3. Becks1 says:

    We started the series last night, it is REALLY hard to watch. They seem to be giving every victim who wanted to come forward equal screen time (which they should). But we could only get through one episode, so it hasn’t even started on issues like Epstein sharing the trafficked girls or anything.

    so if you have are sensitive to those kinds of stories, or have trauma in your past….it may be a really hard watch, as a FYI.

    • NextToMe says:

      I’ve never been trafficked, but I’ve been on, unfortunately, more than one ”bad date.” I couldn’t finish the first episode because I was triggered as hell.

    • Seraphina says:

      Becks, thanks for the heads up.

    • Seraphina says:

      That first episode is difficult to get through. The injustices on so many levels. He was a predator and the queen’s beloved son better start praying. There is no way he can look good after this. No amount of rides to church will help him.

  4. Yoyo says:

    BRF can try to hide Andrew entitled behavior as much as they want, but the rest of the World, knows what he was doing with girls close to his daughter’s age, perv.

    • Juls says:

      And I don’t believe for a second that this was the only girl Andrew abused. He could have continued doing it for years, eventually abusing girls that were much younger than his daughters.

  5. Cupcake says:

    Why is he not facing legal consequences yet?

    • Mtec says:

      Because he’s refusing to cooperate with authorities and the Queen is protecting him.

    • Mtec says:

      Double post. But will add, maybe some diplomatic status is also being used to protect him.

      • KellyRyan says:

        He has been requested by NY prosecutor, SDNY to appear. Requests have been vigorous and he has been noted as uncooperative, which PA denies.

      • smurf says:

        As long as he stays in the UK and no one presses charges against him that may lead to an international investigation of him as the specific perpetrator of the crime (or an enabler), he’ll be fine. For anything to happen, he’d have to be prosecuted in the States (which is where the crimes happened), and even if he’s found guilty, the UK isn’t going to extradite him. So he’s fine. But let’s blame Meghan because of what Kate’s friends told Tatler, ’cause that’s more important.

      • Jaded says:

        Apparently diplomatic immunity was attached to Andrew’s role only when he was a trade envoy but not to him as an individual now that he’s been “relieved” of his duties. The Queen is the only member of the royal family who has sovereign immunity. Lawyers for Virginia Roberts have written to Andrew asking to interview him but the FedEx delivery of said letter was rejected by the Palace. Mummy is definitely intervening. Next step might be having Roberts’ attorneys name Andrew as someone they want “examined” for their case, and specify that they want him questioned orally and under oath. This would have to go through the Senior Master of the Queen’s Bench Division at the Royal Courts of Justice in London but we all know how slowly the wheels of justice turn, especially when dealing with the Queen’s favourite son. I think we’ll see things speed up when the Queen passes away, Charles will not offer him the level of protection mummy has, in fact he may well throw him to the wolves, hopefully along with his grifting ex-wife.

    Omg …didn’t think it was possible to think even less of him and the royal family. Surprise! He is absolutely vile

  7. Golly Gee says:

    “she’s so brave to keep discussing this and I’m sure she’s been threatened by very powerful people.”
    She made a statement a while back on her Twitter or Instagram, that she’s not depressed or suicidal, so if anything happens to her she wants the Epstein investigation to continue no matter what, for the sake of her family and girls everywhere. Hopefully that helps to ensure her safety.

  8. KellyRyan says:

    Thanks for the mention of Filthy Rich, looking forward to viewing it. Hope we keep the focus on the BRF Mafioso. :)

  9. TyrantDestroyed says:

    I will watch this documentary this weekend. It’s important we don’t forget or deviate the attention from this as he is hasn’t faced the consequences yet.
    I think as long as the Queen is alive the BRF will go above and beyond to create drama to protect Andrew and the timing of Kate’s magazine and this documentary is… interesting even if it’s just a strange coincidence.

  10. Sofia says:

    Every time I hear about him and think he can’t get any worse, he gets worse. Also that Epstein doc is the 2nd most watched Netflix programme in the UK today (according to my Netflix) so if the BRF thinks/thought this would “go away” – it won’t.

  11. Heylee says:

    Virginia Roberts is my hero. I watched the entire series. I am in awe of her strength. There is no doubt in my mind that she speaks the truth and Andrew belongs in jail. And my biggest question in all of this is where the hell is Ghisalane? I want the investigative expose on her. In my mind she is equally guilty as Epstein. The grossest of gross people.

  12. Capepopsie says:

    I’m lost for words!
    😡 🤢 🤮

  13. Ferdinand says:

    Well, Andrew is not stupid. he’s not going to go down for such crimes. He knows what he’s / was doing.

    It’s sad that she went through all of that. Sadly for her, age of consent in the UK is 16. So he might not be able to be prosecuted. In the eyes of the law, he didn’t commit any crime.

    Andrew knows this and I bet he benefited multiple times from loopholes and such of the law.

    • A says:

      ‘Consent’ is clearly the operative word there. In the paragraph quoted above it’s obvious she was coerced. Of course there are huge obstacles to prosecuting Prince flipping Andrew for his role in all of this, but ‘age of consent’ only counts if both parties are willing participants.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      I thought when it was a case of trafficking the age of consent doesn’t matter in the jurisdiction the offend occurred? So he may not get to hide behind age of consent though I see it is often trotted out to defend him online on the Daily Heil, also “she knew what she was doing” as defense.

      So for example 12 year olds are trafficked out of a country where age of consent is 18, they are brought to a country where age of consent is 12, they are coerced into sex acts in that country. Legally the age of consent that would apply in this case would be 18, the country they were trafficked out of. My understanding of that is from a True Crime podcast with Jim Clementi, ex FBI and he was speaking about the Epstein case, so I may have misunderstood or not remembering right.

      Also this was clearly coercion and no consent was asked or given.

      • Juls says:

        Yes, I believe the coercion does negate consent in many jurisdictions. Also, in many US states, its still classified as statutory rape if consent exists but there is a certain age difference, like 4 years? in a lot of states.

  14. Sean says:

    In the third episode of the series “The Island”, Steve Scully who performed maintenance on the telecommunications network of Epstein’s island is interviewed. He said every time guests were on the island, it always included young girls. Not women, girls. He said he even saw Bill Clinton lounging with Epstein on a porch (despite Clinton professing to have never been on the island).

    He also recounts a time in 2004, he walked by the pool area. Prince Andrew was engaged in foreplay with a young, topless woman. Scully didn’t know what the exact situation was so he just left the area. He said he worked for Epstein strictly for the money and would find ways to rationalize things; telling himself he didn’t really know how old the girls were so there was no way to know if they were underage. His conscience eventually got the better of him and he cut off all contact with Epstein.

    Years later, he was interviewed by the FBI for their investigation into Epstein. He was shown the now well-known photo of Prince Andrew with Virginia Roberts and instantly recognized her as the young woman he saw Prince Andrew with.

    So that’s at least one witness that can corroborate Virginia’s claim she was trafficked to Andrew.

    • Mtec says:

      Thank you @Sean for recounting those details. I’ve been apprehensive about watching this doc. I know I will do it, but it’s all so triggering and infuriating, I have to wait for the right time where I feel strong enough to take it all in.

  15. OriginalLala says:

    I hate this man and I hate the system that has kept him safe and his victims silent. The truth about how much the BRF/the Queen has protected and shielded him will come out and it should be the end of the BRF.

  16. Liz version 700 says:

    The actual site of his face makes me vomit. I can b o my imagine the reaction it invokes in his victims when they see him wallowing in his privilege.

  17. GR says:

    I wonder if the US will be more forceful in demanding to speak to Andrew if we have a new administration in 2021. I can’t imagine the current “president” cares much about pursuing the issue.
