The Duke of York has answered questions about his links to Jeffrey Epstein for the first time, in a BBC interview.
Axar.az reports citing BBC.
He spoke to BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis in an interview recorded at Buckingham Palace on Thursday.
Maitlis said it was a "no holds barred interview", which will be broadcast on BBC Two at 21:00 GMT on Saturday.
The duke faces serious claims over his ties to the 66-year-old US financier, who took his own life while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
In 2015, Prince Andrew was named in court papers as part of a US civil case against Epstein.
One of Epstein's accusers, Virginia Roberts - now Virginia Giuffre - said she was forced to have sex with the duke three times between 1999 and 2002, in London, New York and on a private Caribbean island owned by Epstein.
At the time she was under-age according to Florida state's law.
