Allegations about Prince Andrew made in US legal caseMore

The documents from a 2015 defamation case were released by a judge on Friday.

The court papers were released on Friday, a day before wealthy USA financier Epstein was found dead in his prison cell while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges. "Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue".

They included fresh allegations against the Prince, with a deposition from Joanna Sjoberg saying the royal groped her breast when she was 21 at a party at Epstein's mansion, according to the Guardian. And so Andrew and Virginia sat on the couch, and they put the puppet, the puppet on her lap.

It was said in the documents that Ms. Sjoberg was a "young college student" who was approached by "perfect stranger" Ghislaine Maxwell, who "lured" her to Epstein's home with the promise of a "legitimate job".

Guiffre previously claimed to have had sex with Prince Andrew "three times", with the royal having maintained a friendship with Epstein for more than a decade.

A massive cache of documents unsealed by a U.S. court this month accused the Duke of having sex with a minor procured by Epstein.

Ms Maxwell was alleged to have procured underage girls for her then-boyfriend Epstein and his wealthy friends, but she has always denied the allegations.

"I can't think of any occasion when Mr Epstein would have any claim to say he had given hospitality to the Princess of Wales", he told the publication. "I am angry as hell that the prison could have allowed this to happen and that I and his other victims will never see him face the consequences for his horrendous actions", the statement read.

"I would not be surprised if a lot of British Royal names are being cited in this because it is well known that Mr Epstein and Prince Andrew were certainly socially acquainted".

In the United States, parties in civil cases may ask judges to issue a protective order banning parties from disclosing information gathered ahead of a potential hearing.
