Prince Andrew stepped down from public life following the interview and after he was criticised for showing little empathy for the victims of Epstein.

He also lacked remorse for his friendship with the financier during the interview.

During the interview, Andrew denied claims he had sex with Virginia Giuffre, who was said to be trafficked by Epstein on three different occasions, and one being when she was 17, a minor in the US.

Giuffre has alleged that the encounter began when she met Andrew in London's Tramp nightclub where he was described as very sweaty.

Andrew has denied this on the premise that he had a medical condition at the time where he could not sweat and has no recollection of ever meeting the young girl.

He also went on to say that on the day in question he was at a Pizza Express in Woking with his daughters for a party.

Andrew has since paid millions to a civil sexual assault case with Giuffre in the US.
