The picture of Prince Andrew with 17-year-old Virginia Roberts has been reproduced countless times around the world since it was first published in February 2011 – but until today it has never been shown in its entirety.
Epstein victim Virginia Roberts explained that the picture with Andrew was taken at Ghislaine Maxwell’s home after a visit to Tramp nightclub – a claim the Duke disputes. ‘All of us went upstairs and I asked Jeffrey to snap a picture of me with the Prince. I wanted something to show my mom,’ she said.
The Prince has tried desperately to suggest the photo was somehow faked. First unnamed friends cast doubt upon it and then, during his disastrous TV interview, Andrew himself said he didn’t ‘believe that photograph was taken in the way that has been suggested’. He also expressed the hope that the original might one day surface, as though this might exonerate him.
In fact, the full, uncropped picture disputes the Duke’s cause.
Seldom do pictures appear in newspapers without being cropped for compositional reasons, and so it was with this image. The complete picture reveals further detail of the interior of Maxwell’s house, in particular, what appears to be a large post-Impressionist painting hanging on the wall, its bottom corner obscured by a flash of white, possibly one of Epstein’s fingers partially covering the lens.
Andrew also hinted that the hand around her waist may not be his. ‘From the investigations that we’ve done, you can’t prove whether or not that photograph is faked or not because it is a photograph of a photograph of a photograph,’ he claimed.
Miss Roberts gave the original to the FBI which, incidentally, has never questioned its veracity.
