PRINCE Andrew has been urged to give a statement by US cops following the dramatic arrest of Epstein's 'pimp' Ghislaine Maxwell.
During a press conference today in New York official investigators said they would “welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk with us to have the benefit of his statement”.
The prince has faced backlash over his friendship with the disgraced financier and faced allegations from victim Virginia Roberts who claimed that she had sex with the royal on several occasions.
Claims that the Prince has strongly denied.
Speaking at the press conference this afternoon Attorney Audrey Strauss said: "We would welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk to us, we would like to have the benefit of his statement.
But added that they would not comment further on the Duke of York in relation to the investigation.
"Our doors remain open and we would like to hear from him and have the benefit of his statement."
The FBI had previously claimed that the royal had failed to respond to them regarding Epstein but the Duke claimed that he had made several attempts to help with the sex trafficking investigation.
