The Duke of York, Prince Andrew accused of groping young woman’s breast

The Duke of York, Prince Andrew has been accused in court documents of touching a young woman’s breast at a Manhattan mansion.

It is believed the incident took place at the mansion of Jeffrey Epstein, a wealthy financier who is facing federal s-x trafficking charges in New York.

The allegation surfaced in a cache of legal papers unsealed by a US judge in a defamation case involving a British socialite, who is alleged to have supplied Epstein with underage girls.

Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite and media heiress is accused of procuring underage girls for Epstein and his circle of ‘rich and powerful friends.’

Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre sued Maxwell in 2015, after she alleged he defamed her by claiming she was a liar.

She also claimed that Epstein coerced her into s-xual encounters with Prince Andrew.

In the legal documents, released on Friday, Johanna Sjoberg, another alleged Epstein victim, said Andrew touched her breast while sitting on a couch inside the billionaire’s Manhattan apartment in 2001. Buckingham Palace denied the allegations, calling them ‘categorically untrue’.

In the court documents, Ms Sjoberg said: ‘I just remember someone suggesting a photo, and they told us to go get on the couch. And so Andrew and Virginia sat on the couch, and they put the puppet, the puppet on her lap.

‘And so then I sat on Andrew’s lap, and I believe on my own volition, and they took the puppet’s hands and put it on Virginia’s breast, and so Andrew put his on mine.’

The legal documents go on to claim that Ms Sjoberg was a ‘young college student’ who was approached by ‘perfect stranger’ Ms Maxwell, who ‘lured’ her to Epstein’s home with the promise of a ‘legitimate job’.

He could face trial soon.
