Video has emerged showing Prince Andrew inside the New York mansion owned by recently deceased paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The footage, obtained by the Daily Mail, was taken in 2010 - two years after Epstein was convicted of sex with a child.
It shows Epstein walk out the front door of his Manhattan home, accompanied by a very young-looking blonde girl, and get into a car.

Sometime later, the front door opens again and another young woman leaves, and the face of Prince Andrew can be seen as he says goodbye to her.He is then seen quickly peering around the side of the door into the street before closing it.
The Duke of York was staying in the 40-room house that has since been dubbed the 'House of Horrors' by some of Epstein's victims.
His friendship with the 66-year-old financier and convicted sex offender was well-documented - in 2011, Prince Andrew stepped down as trade envoy over scrutiny of his association with Epstein.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace rejected any suggestion Prince Andrew was at all involved in Epstein's notorious paedophile ring, which allegedly involved the abuse of a large number of underage girls.
"The Duke of York has been appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein's alleged crimes," the statement reads.
"His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behaviour is abhorrent."
Epstein was found dead in his Manhattan prison cell last weekend, soon after pleading not guilty to sex trafficking and conspiracy charges. His death was ruled a suicide, although "serious irregularities" at the supposedly high-security jail have prompted speculation of foul play.
Epstein's other famous associates included Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump.
