Prince Andrew can’t explain why a photo of him exists with his arm around the waist of Virginia Roberts Giuffre, then 17, with Ghislaine looking on inside her mews flat in London. However, he does explain why he stayed in Epstein’s Manhattan mansion in 2010 after the American had been convicted of having sex with an under-age girl. But he’s viewed by many as unconvincing.
