Prince Andrew allegedly associated with another billionaire under investigation of sex crimes – and the former PA of accused Canadian Peter Nygard has questioned why the royal mixes with "sleazy" men, according to reports.
Last week Nygard, 77, was accused in a class action lawsuit in the US of sexually assaulting 10 girls, the the Daily Mirror reports.
Accusations against Nygard were made six months after paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, 66, killed himself as he awaited trial for underage trafficking.
Epstein had been charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking.
Victoria Sarne, originally from London, talked about her time working as his former PA in the 1990s in which she claims she saw "countless" girls arriving at his offices in Toronto, LA and the Bahamas before they were take to his private quarters.
Victoria, 79, said: “He’d attach his homes to his offices, often with a glass elevator. His private spaces were all fitted with mirrors. There were no door handles. They seemed impossible to get out of.
“Peter monitored everything with close circuit TV.
“Everyone could be watched. It didn’t matter who you were… a Hollywood star, a sporting icon or from the Royal Family, Peter could see and record their every move.
“He was sleazy. Like Epstein, he courted anyone in power or who had great fame. They may as well have been brothers.”
Victoria said she believed the two men never associated with each other.
She added: “I never met the prince, but it seems Andrew likes the company of such rich men.
“It raises serious questions about his judgment on the company he keeps.”
In a New York court, Nygard was accused of plying girls with alcohol and drugs before they were raped and sexually assaulted between 2008 and 2015. Three of the claimants were 14 years old at the time. Three others were 15 years old.
The fashion mogul, who has vehemently denied the allegations, hosted Andrew at his home in the Bahamas in 2000.
There is no suggestion the Duke, 59, knew of Nygard’s alleged criminality. No criminal charges are associated with any allegations against Nygard.
Andrew was one of many famous names, including Robert De Niro and actresses Pamela Anderson and Suelyn Medeiros, pictured with Nygard.
Last year the prince stepped down from royal duties.
A spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace said of Nygard: “It is not something we are offering comment or guidance on.”
