A young, beautiful girl with soltop, bar, belly, and long, bright wear their hair. Beside her stands a prince, who is old enough to be her father.
the Image of the british prince Andrew with his arm around the scantily clad young Virginia Roberts is already legendary.
He was 41, british prince and one of the world's richest men. She was 17 and, by his own admission - sexslave.
the Photo has been touring the world media in recent weeks after queen Elizabeth's favourite son has become a central figure in the scandal concerning the pædofilidømte american billionaire, Jeffrey Epstein.
Now tells the now 35-year-old Virginia Roberts - who is the girl in the picture - in an interview with the BBC that it was taken the same evening, as she met the prince for the first time.
Shortly after they had sex for the first time.
Virginia Roberts, which is now called Giuffre name, has several times told, how she in 2001 and 2002, just 17-year-old on several occasions was forced to have sex with the prince.
Jeffrey Epstein took his life in a prison cell in Manhattan in New York, while he waited to get his case to court.
He was accused of being behind a comprehensive pædofiliring and to have abused several young women, several of them minors.
Although Epstein was not able to stand accountable for his sins, the burden of the case, increasingly, the now 59-year-old year-old prince Andrew.
His close friendship with the american businessman obtains now the duke of York.
the Prince has in an interview with the BBC admitted that he regret his friendship with Epstein, but insists that he had no idea what was going on in his vicinity.
What Virginia Roberts terms, he explains that he can't remember that he ever met her.
Key in the case is the image of the young Virginia and the adult prince.
It could be father and daughter, but looking more than a moment at the picture, one is struck by the intimacy of it:
the Prince has a hand on the teenagers ' hip and holding her close to him.
Prince Andrew more than suggests in the interview with the BBC that the image is manipulated, and that it is not his hand holding on the girl.
Monday night was the now 35-year-old Virginia Giuffre forward in the program BBC Panorama, and told his side of the case.
Here she accused, among other things the prince to lie about the infamous photo.
"It's an authentic photo. I have given it to the FBI. There is a date on the back of it from the place it was printed."
' People 'within the walls' (from the court, red.) keep coming with these ridiculous accusations. As, for example, that his arm is too elongated, or that the image is manipulated, or that he went to New York to break with Jeffrey Epstein. Honestly," she says, among other things.
And it is apparently Epstein himself, who is the photographer behind the image.
Virginia Roberts says she asked him to take the picture so she could show her family that she had met the prince.Updated Date: 04 December 2019, 11:00
