Prince Andrew has earned a reputation of cavorting with some of the most unsavoury men on the planet.
Dictators, despots, sleazy businessmen and the most notorious pedophile on earth.
It is his close relationship with pedophile hedge fund king Jeffrey Epstein that now has the randy royal in hot water.
Epstein, 66, topped himself in a Manhattan jail cell triggering an avalanche of conspiracy theories.
And while Buckingham Palace has pooh-poohed allegations that Andrew was involved in sexual hanky panky with Epstein’s coterie of underage sex slaves, the evidence is damning.
Epstein pal Prince Andrew and the financier’s ex-girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, who reportedly was Epstein’s sexual fixer.
Most glaring are the photos of the very middle-aged prince grinning with his arm draped around the waist of Virginia Roberts.
She was 17 at the time and claims Epstein paid her to have sex with the man once known as “Randy Andy.” Hovering is socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, a publishing heiress, who has been called Epstein’s “pimp”.
Henry Austin, news editor of The Independent, told the Toronto Sun that Andrew doesn’t enjoy the best reputation in the U.K.
“He’s seen as a rich, dim, royal,” Austin said. “Some of the Tory papers like the Times and the Telegraph have been very supportive of him.”

Austin said Andrew has frequently been photographed with Queen Elizabeth attending church at Balmoral.
“The palace, of course, is categorically denying anything happened and they’ll give you the runaround, referring you to their previous news release,” he said.
Where and how he earns his money is cloaked in mystery.
“There have been whispers he uses his royal connections for arms dealing.”
But then there are those photos.
The image caused scandalous headlines for the Royal Family when it first surfaced in 2015, along with an array of serious allegations of sexual misconduct.
He has denied having any sexual relations with Roberts.
But following the whirlwind investigation into Epstein and his arrest for sex trafficking, Andrew is again feeling the heat.
And it is the Duke of York who could be prosecutors’ biggest target.
In documents released last Friday, Roberts claims she was “trafficked” to Prince Andrew in London after being flown there on the fiendish financier’s private plane, dubbed “Air Lolita”.

“There is no other reasonable explanation why an American child should be in the company of adults not her kin, in the London house owned by the girlfriend [Maxwell] of a now-convicted sex offender,” the lawyers said.
More testimony from a woman named Johanna Sjoberg also claimed Andrew groped her at Epstein’s New York mansion in 2007.
Buckingham Palace, which rarely comments on scandalous accusations, repeated denials it issued in 2015.

A spokesman told The Washington Post: “This relates to proceedings in the United States, to which the Duke of York is not a party. Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue.”
A picture of Epstein and Andrew strolling in Central Park, taken in 2010 but published a year later, proved especially damaging for the prince.
Epstein was, by then, a registered sex offender, and questions were raised about Andrew’s judgment.

A few months later, Andrew gave up his role as Britain’s business ambassador, promoting British interests abroad.
In 2001, the prince reportedly vacationed with Epstein in Thailand, where Andrew was photographed on a yacht with several topless women.
Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, was also tangled up with Epstein, having accepted £15,000 pounds ($18,000) from him to help pay off her debts.

EPSTEIN ESCAPADES: Criminalizing sex with teens an ‘aberration’
The sewer of slime bubbling over with each new Jeffrey Epstein revelation is enough to make Donald Trump reconsider gutting the EPA.
The perverted financier killed himself Saturday in his New York jail cell while the billionaire awaited trial on sex trafficking charges,
The New York Times reports that the hedge fund hot dog mused that criminalizing sex with underage teen girls went against historical cultural norms.
Reporter James B. Stewart said the twisted money man was “at ease” discussing underage sex.

“He said that criminalizing sex with teenage girls was a cultural aberration and that at times in history, it was perfectly acceptable,” Stewart wrote on Monday. “He pointed out that homosexuality had long been considered a crime and was still punishable by death in some parts of the world.”
CBS News reported Tuesday that there was screaming and shrieking coming from the sex sicko’s cell at the Manhattan Correctional Centre the morning he died. It wasn’t clear who was making the guttural sounds.
Authorities say Epstein used a bedsheet to make a noose and hang himself from the cell’s top bunk. He had been taken off suicide watch just days before.

The warden at MCC has been reassigned and the two guards who were supposed to monitor Epstein’s unit were placed on leave Tuesday, according to the U.S. Justice Dept. Attorney General William Barr called Epstein’s death a “failure” by officials.
Barr “directed the Bureau of Prisons to temporarily assign” warden Lamine N’Diaye to a regional office, pending the outcome of an internal probe into Epstein’s death.
As the feds raided Epstein’s Caribbean island haunt in the U.S. Virgin Islands — called “Pedophile Island” by locals — they removed a slew of computers.
Barr said of the raid on the 70-acre island: “Any co-conspirators should not rest easy. The victims deserve justice and they will get it.”
