Alessi said Prince Andrew and his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, were both “friends” of the late financier, but that Ferguson only visited the house briefly once.
However, “Prince Andrew spent weeks with us,” Alessi said.
Representatives for Prince Andrew did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment, made outside of normal business hours.
The revelations were made in a batch of documents released as part of a long-running trial between one of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, and his sex trafficking accomplice, Ghislaine Maxwell.
Giuffre claimed she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17, which the prince denied. Giuffre filed a lawsuit against him in 2021, which resulted in an out-of-court settlement.
Prince Andrew has denied any wrongdoing and expressed regret for associating with Epstein even after his first conviction for sexual abuse.
In the newly revealed documents, an anonymous accuser, who the BBC says is Giuffre, alleges she was forced to have sex with the prince on two occasions: once in Maxwell’s London apartment and once another time in an “orgy” with other elderly sub-daughters at Epstein’s private resort in the US Virgin Islands.
British newspaper The Telegraph reported that King Charles was preparing to withdraw private financing for security operations at the home of his brother Prince Andrew following the unsealing of the documents.
The Palace has not officially commented on the matter.
So far, court documents reveal no major new allegations regarding Epstein or his associates, and being mentioned on the list does not imply any wrongdoing.
Most of those named so far are victims, law enforcement officials, Epstein’s household staff, and friends and family, according to Business Insider’s analysis.
