Prince Andrew’s legal team reportedly went into “emergency talks” following the conviction of Ghislaine Maxwell, a close associate of convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, on sex trafficking charges.
Prince Andrew has been under scrutiny for years over allegations that he sexually abused Virginia Giuffre when she was underage. Giuffre is one of Epstein’s most high-profile accusers and has claimed the dead financier sex trafficked her to Prince Andrew. Giuffre says that a 2001 picture of her, Prince Andrew, and Maxwell was taken during the time she was being abused by the British royal.
The prince has denied all of Giuffre’s allegations and claimed to have never known her, despite the photograph of the two together. Prince Andrew has claimed ignorance about the photograph, not remembering ever meeting Giuffre or the photo ever being taken.
On Wednesday, Maxwell was found guilty on five of six counts of sex trafficking and other charges connected with allegations that Epstein, who died by suicide in a federal prison in August 2019, sexually abused and trafficked underage girls. Prince Andrew’s legal team went into “emergency talks” shortly after, according to the Mirror.
