Prince Andrew has taped a tell-all interview with the BBC during which he discusses his controversial relationship with now-deceased sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and the sexual assault allegations made against him.
The Duke of York, 59, was interviewed by Newsnight's Emily Maitlis on Thursday at Buckingham Palace and she called the conversation a "no holds barred interview" with "no questions vetted" on social media.
It's the first time Prince Andrew answered questions directly about the scandal.

Queen Elizabeth's second son reportedly first met Epstein in 1999. In 2015, Virginia Roberts (now Virginia Giuffre) alleged that she was forced to have sex with the prince three times between 1999 and 2002 in London and on Epstein's private island in the Caribbean.
