It comes after the Mail on Sunday published footage that claimed to show the Duke of York inside the financier's Manhattan mansion in 2010 - two years after Epstein's first conviction.

A Buckingham Palace statement said: "The Duke of York has been appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein's alleged crimes. 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."

But what was the Duke of York doing at Epstein's house?

Jeffrey Epstein, 66, took his own life in a jail cell while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges in New York.

Kirsty Wark speaks to former BBC Royal Correspondent, Michael Cole.
