Royal Family Stunned by Prince's Sickening Sex Scandal

Prince AndrewThe royal family has certainly had its share of scandals, but we haven't really seen one since Prince Harry got a little too naked and wasted while in Las Vegas. But that was relatively harmless. Here comes one big ol' scandalroo, though. A woman is accusing Prince Andrew of forcing sex on her when she was underage.

The allegations are part of a lawsuit made by two women who claim that Andrew's old pal, financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was convicted in 2008 of soliciting an underage girl for prostitution, made them his "sex slaves."

Epstein pleaded guilty to paying for sex with a 14-year-old girl and served 13 months in prison (compare this to the types of long sentences non-rich men get for having sex with underage girls!).

Epstein has also paid off at least 17 women who accused him of having sex with them when they were underage. At least 40 women have come forward saying that Epstein abused them.

Now a woman in Florida who says she was forced to have sexual relations with friends of Epstein names Prince Andrew as one of those guys.

The Prince, who is Prince Charles' brother, staunchly denies the allegations. A palace spokesman 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.

As shocking as this allegation is, Prince Andrew should have known better than to remain pals with Epstein long after he went to prison. Reportedly, the two still got together for three years after his release, until they were photographed together.

It's just really not good for your reputation to hang out with someone like that, and it opens yourself up to allegations such as this.

If Prince Andrew is totally innocent, however, this really must sting. He has daughters and being accused of being a pedophile must be devastating.

What a very unexpected and shocking scandal to hit the royals!
