Prince Andrew Tracked Virginia Roberts Through Ghislaine Maxwell, Leaked Emails Show
After Prince Andrew braved the national television to try clearing up his name, it seemed like he got nothing good in return and faced day-to-day humiliations instead.
The root of the Royal Family's embarrassment started in 2015 when Virginia Roberts included Prince Andrew's name in her U.S court documents as part of her then-newly-filed defamation case against Ghislaine Maxwell.
Roberts revealed that she met the Duke of York through Maxwell, Jeffrey Epstein's ally in his sex trafficking crimes and other illegal transactions. She added that Maxwell forced her to sleep with the royal prince and had numerous sexual encounters with him in London, New York and the U.S Virgin Islands at the age of 17 in 2001.
Years after, Prince Andrew agreed on a TV interrogation with BBC. They asked the prince about his ties with pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and the allegations of sexual impropriety with then-underage Virginia Roberts.
Prince Andrew once again denied the claims made by Virginia Roberts, who reportedly became a sex slave of the now-deceased Epstein. Giuffre revealed that she was forced to have sex with politicians, businessmen and Prince Andrew, which became the most-talked matter related to trafficking cases.
To reveal more, however, BBC created more bombs out of Prince Andrew's car-crash interview and dropped them one at a time.
In the recent BBC Panorama documentary, the news outlet unveiled leaked e-mails showing how Prince Andrew begged Maxwell to help him by answering his questions about the sex slave. He allegedly sent the e-mail hours before Roberts uncovered his name in U.S. court files in 2015.
"Let me know when we can talk. Got some specific questions to ask you about Virginia Roberts," the Duke of York wrote in one of the emails
Epstein's associate told Prince Andrew to call her once he became available since she "had some information."
Meanwhile, a judge from U.S. civil records ruled Roberts' case as "immaterial and impertinent," causing it to be struck out from the court.
What Brought Rhe Case Back To Life?
In 2015, the Royal Palace defended the prince and denied the non-sense claims of Roberts.
This year, the Duke of York opened up long-forgotten wounds and left more unanswered questions after his one-on-one BBC interview with journalist Emily Maitlis. The interview affected not only the Royal Family but also his corporate partnerships with various sponsors and charities.
Someone got extremely interested and expressed their intention to seek for more information, regardless of what the effects would be.
Per the Times of London report, the FBI started making their moves to sit with Prince Andrew and discuss his relationship with the convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
A source from the Justice Department divulged information about the current discussions between the FBI and the department to interview the duke. Prince Andrew piqued the FBI's curiosity more after a report circulated saying that his friend and Epstein's confidante, Ghislaine Maxwell, was the one who brought underage girls to him.
But before he can even face the FBI, though, his brother Prince Charles has reportedly cleared his schedule to meet him to finally talk about the issues.
