Prince Andrew's Rep Defends Him Amid Jeffrey Epstein Scandal

A spokesman for Prince Andrew has defended the embattled British royal after his alleged links to shamed American billionaire Jeffrey Epstein were exposed in the press.
The Duke of York, ex-husband of Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, has come under fire after British tabloids reported his alleged friendship with Epstein, who was sentenced to 18 months in jail in 2008 after being convicted of child sex offences.
Epstein is also alleged to have helped out his pal by paying off debts racked up by Ferguson, who was mired in scandal last year (10) when she attempted to fix her finances by selling an opportunity to meet her former husband.
Andrew has reportedly been friends with Epstein since the 1990s and met him as recently as December (10).
The Prince is now facing calls to resign his position as a trade envoy for the U.K., while a spokesman for Buckingham Palace insists the royal has done nothing wrong, telling Britain's Daily Express, "There has been no suggestion of impropriety on the part of the Duke, nor should there be."
