Buckingham Palace has denied "any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors" by Prince Andrew, after he was named in US court papers.
A woman named him in documents she filed in a Florida court over how prosecutors handled a case against financier Jeffrey Epstein.
She claims that between 1999 and 2002 she was forced by Epstein to have sex with the prince when she was a minor.
The palace said it would not comment in detail on the legal proceedings.
But a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: "This relates to long-standing and ongoing civil proceedings in the United States, to which the Duke of York is not a party.
"As such we would not comment on the detail. However, for the avoidance of doubt, any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue".http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-30659629
Really please we are about to set up an enquiry to get to the heart of all these allegations into the higher echelons of society. As we know it will be totally transparent, totally independent and will identify those (if any) are responsible. Bit like the Hutton inquiry!
