Police stand by decision not to probe Epstein abuse allegations

The Prince of Wales - who was in New Zealand when Andrew was booted from royal duties - has reportedly sought counsel from their father, Prince Philip, as well as Sir Nicholas Soames, a veteran politician and grandson of Sir Winston Churchill.

Prince Charles has ordered a crisis meeting with brother Andrew - demanding he comes clean about his dealings with Jeffrey Epstein before a potentially damaging TV special, according to a report Sunday.

He sought to cast doubt on her testimony claiming that he was "profusely sweating" in a nightclub, saying that a medical condition at the time meant he could not perspire.

A woman who claims she was forced into having sex with Prince Andrew will say that "only one of us is telling the truth" during an explosive BBC interview to be aired next week.

It comes after Virginia Giuffre, who alleged she was trafficked to the United Kingdom aged 17 to sleep with the duke, criticised the Metropolitan police for failing to subject her complaint to a full inquiry in 2015.

Epstein died August 10 after being found unconscious in a Manhattan jail cell, where he was awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges.

Senior figures at the Women's Interlink Foundation (WIF), with which the Duke started his Key To Freedom initiative in 2012, told the Telegraph they had not been aware of allegations against the Prince.

An interview with Ms Giuffre is to be broadcast on "Panorama" on the BBC on Monday. And then because the duchess was away, we have a simple rule in the family that when one is away the other one is there.

The duke has faced a growing backlash following an interview with BBC Newsnight's Emily Maitlis about his friendship with the USA financier.

"It was a really scary time in my life", Giuffre says in the interview.

Charlie Proctor, editor of the Royal Central said the Prince of Wales wants the engagements to be conducted only by members of his immediate family - his sons and their wives.

During the programme, BBC reporter Darragh MacIntyre will also look at another of the prince's friends, Ghislaine Maxwell, investigating her alleged links to the Epstein scandal.

"In July 2015 the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) confirmed it had received an allegation of non-recent trafficking for sexual exploitation".

It concluded the following year that it would not launch a full criminal investigation as the focus would largely be on activities and relationships outside Britain.

The Met reviewed that decision after Epstein died in USA custody earlier this year.
