PRINCE Andrew received a foot massage while watching Hollywood film The King’s Speech after Jeffrey Epstein arranged for three young women to meet the Duke of York, an ex-model who was part of the late paedophile’s inner circle has claimed.
The women, all in their early twenties, were allegedly told to “dress up beautifully” for the meetings at Epstein’s New York mansion and promised a “bright career future, powerful connections and money” in return.
Evidence seen by the Mail on Sunday reportedly suggests that at least two of the meetings – and possibly all three – occurred during a visit the prince made to Epstein’s home in December 2010.
The newspaper reports Andrew allegedly had his feet massaged by a woman while watching Colin Firth star in the movie as his grandfather King George VI.
The source claimed: “Whenever Epstein watched a movie, he requested girls to give him and his guests a foot massage.
“I am pretty certain Andrew was given the same treatment. It is unlikely they watched the movie alone and without a massage.”
Literary agent John Brockman has previously claimed he witnessed the Duke of York receiving a foot massage from two Russian women at Epstein’s mansion.
Epstein, who killed himself in August while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking minors, had only months before the 2010 visit completed a 13-month stint in jail following a conviction for procuring an underage girl for prostitution.
The prince has always maintained he made the trip only to cut ties with Epstein.
The prince has previously been accused of having sex with Epstein victim Virginia Roberts when she was 17, though has always denied wrongdoing.
Discussing the 2010 visit in a widely-criticised BBC interview in November, the prince said: “Now, I went there with the sole purpose of saying to him that because he had been convicted, it was inappropriate for us to be seen together.”
But the account given by the anonymous insider contradicts that claim.
“I think that it was Epstein who invited Andrew to NYC,” the source said.
“The girls were going to Epstein’s house specifically to meet Andrew, not just Epstein.”
The source identifies one of the three women as model Lana Zakocela, who modelled for Victoria Secret, which is owned by a known Epstein client.
The source also told the Mail on Sunday that Epstein used the prince to improve his image following his release from jail.
“I think Andrew was incredibly useful for him as a promotion tool,” she said.
“He had just left jail, and to show a guest of such a level was perfect for his social capital.
“He was telling everyone that the prince was in the city.”
Epstein also reportedly spoke about watching 2010 Oscar winner The King’s Speech, whose central character is George VI, Andrew’s grandfather, with Andrew prior its release in the UK.
The insider says that Andrew might have received a foot massage from a woman during the screening.
Representatives of Prince Andrew have been approached for comment.
