Prince Andrew and Virginia Roberts Giuffre, along with Ghislaine Maxwell. Queen Elizabeth II's second son, 59, has faced outrage for days after he gave a television interview in which he defended his friendship with the disgraced financier.
An American lawyer for some of the alleged victims of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein called on the duke to honour his pledge to help with investigations into his former friend.
Andrew denies claims he had sex with a 17-year-old girl procured by Epstein, who was found dead in a NY prison in August while awaiting charges of trafficking minors.
Andrew will be scaling down his public work from now on, but it is not clear if his finances will change as he is supported by his mother the Queen and her help will never be disclosed.
His demeanour and comments during the interview have sparked a backlash online, with many asking what Andrew was hiding.
Asked about Giuffre's accusations, Prince Andrew told BBC's Maitlis, "I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever".
The 59-year-old prince said during the BBC interview that he could not have had a sexual encounter with Giuffre on one occasion because he recalled having been at home that night after he and one of his daughters went to a Pizza Express restaurant in the United Kingdom earlier in the day.
Allred has filed a civil lawsuit for a client known as Jane Doe 15, who claimed Epstein sexually abused her when she was 15 but has not accused Andrew of any wrongdoing.
Lawyers for Epstein's victims believe Andrew may have valuable information about the late financier's sex offenses.
Making matters worse, Andrew added that he didn't regret his relationship with "Jeffrey" because of the connections he provided.
Battling criticism over his association with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, Britain's Prince Andrew said Wednesday that he is stepping away from his public duties "for the foreseeable future".
And that could be the next step as the Federal Bureau of Investigation and USA prosecutors have indicated they are anxious to interview the prince about the sickening sex abuse that occurred in Epstein's orbit.
But she said "sex trafficking" was too strong a term for what Epstein was doing. That came just months after Epstein had served 13 months of an 18 month sentence for procuring a minor for prostitution.
The prince's attempts to distance himself from Epstein in the weird BBC interview were disastrous and, by Monday, companies such as accounting powerhouse KPMG were clamoring to end their association with him - yanking their sponsoring of his Pitch@Palace entrepreneurship program. The Queen provides Prince Andrew around £250,000 (about $323,000) a year.
"What's the date?" she cheekily asked. "The fact of the matter is you can not criticize someone because they aren't as bright as you would like them to be".
Prince Andrew is facing calls to cooperate with United States investigators over the Jeffrey Epstein scandal but a top QC has warned he may be arrested if he enters the country.
"His suicide has left many unanswered questions, particularly for his victims, and I deeply sympathize with everyone who has been affected and wants some form of closure".
After the interview, some major companies made a decision to withdraw support for the prince's charity projects.
