Prince Andrew should not imagine his legal woes are over, a lawyer for Jeffrey Epstein’s victims has said – noting that Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell has until June 2023 to cooperate with prosecutors.
Spencer Kuvin, who represented nine of Epstein’s accusers, told a new documentary that there could yet be further revelations.
Maxwell, 60, was sentenced to 20 years in prison in June for conspiring with Epstein to sexually abuse dozens of young women.
Currently in FCI Tallahassee, a low-security federal prison in Florida’s capital, she has said she intends to appeal her sentence. Mr Kuvin said she could be intending on cooperating, in a bid to reduce her lengthy sentence.
‘She is really the person who holds all the secrets,’ said Mr Kuvin, speaking in a new Peacock documentary ‘Prince Andrew: Banished’, which was released on the US streaming service yesterday. ‘This isn’t the end of the story.’
A string of royal experts speaking in the documentary branded Andrew ‘an idiot’, a ‘spoiled brat’ and a ‘narcissist’ as part of the program, which explored his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.
The Duke of York, 62, was also branded ‘the runt of a litter’ who ‘couldn’t keep his trousers closed’.
The 90-minute program explored how Andrew’s ‘antics’ as a royal ‘brought scandal and disgrace’ on his family and the ‘privilege, jealousy, desire, and greed’ that pushed him into friendships with paedophile financier Epstein and Maxwell, his accomplice.
The documentary heard from a number of former royal employees and journalists, including ex-press secretary Dickie Arbiter.
He tells the documentary: ‘The problem is, the man’s an idiot. There’s always one runt of the litter, and Andrew was it.’
Royal author Phil Dampier adds: ‘He’s never smoked or taken drugs or drunk alcohol but his one big thing is sex.’
And journalist Helen Kirwan-Taylor says: ‘The talk of the dinner parties was he couldn’t keep his trousers closed.’
Kuvin said that with Epstein dead the spotlight turned on those associated with him, such as Maxwell and Andrew.
Paul Page, who worked in the security role from 1998 to 2004 before being jailed for a property scam, recalled how protection officers were shocked by the number of women who would visit Andrew’s private rooms at the palace, adding that he’s ‘just a horrible person’.
Page tells the documentary: ‘We used to have a joke that he should have a revolving door in his bedroom.
‘The amount of women going in and out of there, it was just literally every other day someone would be coming in to see him – a different one every time.’
