Prince Andrew reportedly has ‘no intention’ of helping US authorities in their probe into convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein as pressure mounts on the FBI to investigate those connected to Epstein and convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.

Days after Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison for procuring minors for sexual favours as part of Epstein’s sex abuse ring, a source told Mirror UK: “Andrew has no intention of speaking to US authorities. He has nothing to say and nothing to add.”

This comes after Prince Andrew had earlier assured authorities that he would help them in their probe into Epstein and Maxwell’s twisted sex ring.

Meanwhile, the insider continued: “He sees no reason why anyone would want to speak to him and now that his case has been settled with Virginia Giuffre, he considers the matter settled.”

For the unversed, Andrew was accused of sexual assault by Virgnia Giuffre who alleged that the Duke of York abused her in the early 2000’s when she was a minor.

The case was settled by Prince Andrew out of court, after the Duke agreed to pay £12million to Giuffre, though he has no recollection of meeting her.

The comments come after lawyer Lisa Bloom told New York’s federal court during Maxwell’s sentencing: “Everyone associated with Epstein and Maxwell should be carefully investigated. We call upon the FBI to fully investigate Prince Andrew.”
