In a statement she claimed Epstein raped her in front of a wall of photographs of him shaking hands with world leaders and celebrities.

The 15-year-old was then offered by Epstein’s representative to visit his Caribbean island which she declined ‘out of fear’ and did not meet Andrew or see the billionaire sex offender again, according to The Sunday Times.

These allegations were set out in a letter sent to Prince Andrew by Jane Doe 15’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, last week.

The letter by Allred to Andrew stated that Epstein presented connections with ‘the world’s most powerful people’.

It said: ‘Your prestige and reputation were directly touted in his attempts to engage in further harm.’
