Epstein’s former AP Ms Sjoberg claimed his alleged incident with Andrew took place at the pedophile’s New York townhouse.

She says the prince touched her chest as a latex puppet of Andrew from British satirical TV show Spitting Image was used to abuse Ms Giuffre, then 17, by Epstein lady Ghislaine Maxwell.

Ms Sjoberg – who was not an alleged victim in the New York trial which convicted Maxwell, 60, of sex trafficking minors in December – first recounted her encounter with Andrew in 2007.

Described as an “all-American, church-going brunette” from Maine, she claimed to have met Andrew after arriving at Epstein’s mansion after a day of sightseeing in New York.

She said: “Prince Andrew was there, as well as Ghislaine and a few other girls my age.

“Andrew was very charming. I didn’t know exactly who he was, but I felt like I knew him.

“She (Maxwell) came with a present for him – a latex puppet of him from Spitting Image.

“We had our picture taken. Virginia, another girl there, sat on a chair and had the puppet in her lap.

“Andrew sat in another chair, I sat on his lap – and he put his hand on my chest.

“Ghislaine put the puppet’s hand on Virginia’s chest, then Andrew put his hand on mine.”
