questions for the first time about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and accusations of sexual abuse, all in a no holds barred interview with the bbc. This morning, prince Andrew breaking his silence about the teenager in this 2001 photo who says in court papers she was forced by Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with the prince. The prince claiming in an exclusive interview with the bbc he doesn't remember meeting her. I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady. None whatsoever. You don't remember meeting her. No. Reporter: Virginia Roberts Giuffre now a 35-year-old mother says socialite Ghislaine Maxwell recruited her when she was 16 in court filings in a defamation case against Maxwell Giuffre said Epstein ordered her to have sex with his powerful friends including prince Andrew in London, in New York and on his private caribbean island. He knows exactly what he's done, and I hope he comes clean about it. Reporter: But now, the prince addressing his long relationship with Jeffrey Epstein. Even after the financier was convicted of soliciting prostitution from a minor in 2008 and was a registered sex offender, the prince seen in this video obtained by "The daily mail" appearing in the doorway of Epstein's home. The problem was the fact that once he had been convicted -- You stayed with him. I stayed with him, and that's the bit that as it were I kick myself for on a daily basis because it was not something that was becoming of a member of our family and we try and uphold the highest standards and practices and I let them down. Simple as that. Reporter: Epstein died an apparent suicide in jail, awaiting trial for sex trafficking charges. Still, Giuffre is going to keep fighting. I won't stop fighting, I will never be silenced until these people are brought to justice. Prosecutors are looking into whether anyone else participated in or facilitated abuse. As for Ghislaine Maxwell, she's not been charged with any crime and insists those allegations including about prince Andrew are false. It's amazing even after Epstein's death, these conversations and some of the investigations still moving forward. Fascinating. Thank you, Eva.
