Virginia Giuffre told me about sex with Prince Andrew

One of the key witnesses in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking trial came forward on Friday with new information about Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s allegations of sexual abuse against Prince Andrew.

Carolyn Andriano, 35, says in a new bombshell interview that Giuffre told her in 2001 that she had had sex with British Royalty – and even showed her the now infamous photo of the two posing together at Maxwell’s London home.

Giuffre, who was 17 at the time, is currently suing Andrew in New York, accusing him of sexually molesting her when she was a minor.

Giuffre, now 38, has long claimed she was coerced into sex-trafficking with the prince by Jeffrey Epstein and his wife Maxwell.

Andriano – who testified using only her first name at Maxwell’s trial – waived her right to anonymity in an interview with The Daily Mail.

Andriano said she remembers Giuffre texting her from London in March 2001 to say she was going out to dinner with Andrew, Maxwell and Epstein.

“I asked her if she had been to the palace. And she said, ‘I have to sleep with him,'” Andriano told the Mail.

“I said What? You’re f—ing with me,’ and she said, ‘No, I have to sleep with him.’ She didn’t seem upset about it. She thought it was pretty cool.”

A week later Giuffre had returned to Florida and Andriano, who was only 14 at the time, said she asked the older girl to show her a picture of the prince.

Adriano said Giuffre showed her the photo of herself posing in a pink tank top, with Andrew’s arm around her waist and Maxwell grinning in the background.

Andriano said she believes the photo was on a cellphone that was just gaining popularity at the time. She said it could also have been a digital photo or a one-way snapshot.

“Virginia just couldn’t believe it,” Andriano told the Mail. “Maxwell had told her she had a surprise for her and I guess the surprise was Prince Andrew. She was excited. I guess if you meet someone that famous I would have been excited too.

“She said they had dinner and had sex. She didn’t say anything about what they ate or where they were – we didn’t talk about that. It was just that she couldn’t believe she slept with Prince Andrew.”

Andriano testified at Maxwell’s trial that it was Giuffre who introduced her to Epstein and Maxwell growing up in Florida in the early 2000s.

She said she was sexually assaulted hundreds of times over the next few years by Epstein at his Palm Beach mansion during so-called massage sessions, which Maxwell helped arrange.

Andriano told the Mail that she accuses Giuffre of linking her to the tainted duo.

“She knew how old I was and she knew I came from a broken home,” Andriano said of her former boyfriend.

“I don’t think she (Giuffre) deserves any compensation. I don’t think she was forced into anything,” Andriano said.

Giuffre, a vocal accuser of Epstein and Maxwell, claims the ailing couple sexually trafficked her to Andrew three times – in London, New York and on Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean. Her case against the 61-year-old prince is due to go to court later this year.

Andriano said Giuffre never spoke again about meeting Andrew after their initial conversations.

“I never had to ask Virginia about Prince Andrew again after she told me about it. She had told me never to do it again,” she said.

Andriano said she asked her friend if she had been paid but never received an answer.

At Maxwell’s trial in lower Manhattan, Andriano told the jury Giuffre told her she could make some money by visiting Epstein’s mansion and massaging him.

On her first visit to the property, she said Epstein stripped naked in front of her and Giuffre in his massage room and lay face down on the massage.

“And I looked at Virginia and she made an eye movement to say, ‘Don’t worry, it’s going to be okay.’ Forty-five minutes into the massage he turned around. I stepped back and Virginia climbed on top of him and had sex with him,” Andriano recalled.

“I didn’t know what to do or say or where to go, so I sat on the couch and watched it until it was done,” she said. “We went back downstairs and Maxwell asked, ‘How did everything go?’ Virginia glanced at her to say it was a great session, and that’s when Maxwell asked for my phone number.”

Maxwell gave her three $100 bills for her service, Andriano said.

Andriano, who is now a mother of five, told the Mail she was proud that her testimony helped condemn the disgraced socialite for luring and grooming her and other underage girls to get them from Epstein be abused.

“I have no shame in being a victim of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell,” she said. “For other girls who have been victimized, I want them to know that it’s okay to come out and tell someone — even if you don’t want to be identified — and the sooner the better.”
