PRINCE Andrew confronted paedo Jeffrey Epstein over whether he had any dirt on him, says an ex of the royal.
She says the duke grilled his pal while spending four days at his New York mansion in 2010.
Visitors have spoken about hidden cameras covering bedrooms and toilets. The ex said: Andrew wanted to see if he (Epstein) had anything dodgy.
He asked if there was anything he should be worried about and received a categorical assurance that the matter was closed and nothing exists in the way of recordings or pictures.
“If it wasnt for that Andrew wouldnt have hesitated to end the friendship over the phone. He does that sort of thing all the time.
Asked if she believes the dukes account after his Newsnight interview, the ex added: At first yes, but then I had this creeping feeling of doubt.
That turned into feeling sick, I mean really sick, at the realisation that he could have been messing about with those girls at the same time as s******* me.
HOAR on Sunday yesterday revealed Andrew invited Epsteins lover Ghislaine Maxwell, 57, to Buckingham Palace this June, two weeks after the FBI launched a new investigation.
Billionaire Epstein was found dead in jail in August.
Another ex of Andrew, Lady Victoria Hervey, who dated him in 1999, has previously said she felt watched when staying at Epsteins pad.
Maria Farmer, who says Epstein raped her in the 90s, has told of cameras monitoring bedrooms and bathrooms.
Andrew compared the home to a railway station with people constantly coming and going.
