How the Epstein & Prince Andrew scandal unfolded

The scandal involving Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier, and convicted sex offender, and British royal Prince Andrew has been making headlines for months. But how did it all unfold? In this article, we will examine how the Epstein & Prince Andrew scandal began, who is involved, and what could happen next.

The beginning

It all began when Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in 2019 on charges of sex trafficking minors. Prince Andrew came under public scrutiny after a photo emerged of him with one of his alleged victims, Virginia Giuffre (formerly known as Virginia Roberts). This photo sparked numerous allegations from other women claiming that they were also abused by Epstein at his various homes across the United States & Europe.

Damning accusation

The most damning accusation came when Ms. Giuffre claimed that she had been forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew – claims that he has repeatedly denied. This led to an interview with BBC Newsnight in which the prince addressed the allegations directly but only seemed to make matters worse due to his lack of empathy and refusal to cooperate with investigations into the Epstein case. His reputation has been tarnished ever since!

Investigation continues

Despite these events, it appears that investigations are still ongoing; the British government has requested the United States provide any necessary assistance in finding out the truth behind accusations against Prince Andrew and other individuals implicated in the case including Ghislaine Maxwell (Epstein’s former girlfriend/associate). 

U.S. authorities have seemingly refused this request however citing a “lack of mutual cooperation” between countries.


Regardless outcome criminal investigation scandal itself could have serious implications down line – not least the potential loss of popularity amongst the public if found guilty of failing to cooperate with forces law properly address accusations made against him. 

There even murmurs within Buckingham Palace itself about potential repercussions if the nation finds themselves unable to believe Prince Andrew’s story . . . only time will tell what happens next.
