'He saw no evil.
Britain’s Prince Andrew admitted Saturday that it was a “mistake” to continue palling around with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, but insisted he never saw any suspect behavior while they were together.
“During the time I knew him, I saw him infrequently and probably no more than only once or twice a year,” the prince said, according to the BBC.
“I have stayed in a number of his residences. At no stage during the limited time I spent with him did I see, witness or suspect any behavior of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction.”
The prince, who said he met Epstein in 1999, was seen multiple times at Epstein’s Upper East Side mansion, including a 2013 visit where he was spotted getting a foot massage from two young Russian women. He also flew on Epstein’s private plane at least twice, including at least one flight in 2001 with the disgraced financier’s alleged 17-year-old sex slave Virginia Roberts, now Virginia Giuffre, on board.
Andrew, 59, was notoriously photographed arm-in-arm with the girl around that time.
Epstein, 66, killed himself on Aug. 10 in his cell in a Manhattan lockup, where he was awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges. He had been removed from suicide watch days earlier.
In his statement, Andrew, the Duke of York said it was a “regret” that he saw Epstein after the money man’s release from prison in 2010 on charges of solicitation of prostitution from a minor — and claims what he knew of him “was evidently not the real person”
Andrew expressed his “tremendous sympathy” for Epstein’s victims.'
