But the move could backfire significantly as Andriano recently corroborated claims that Roberts had sex with Andrew at the home of convicted sex predator Ghislaine Maxwell when she was 17.

The duke has steadfastly denied the claims against him.

Andrew’s lawyers are also looking for other women who may have been recruited by Roberts underage to testify, according to the Sunday Times.

A source familiar with the Duke’s strategy told the paper that his legal team “would like to speak to and interview anyone and everyone with information regarding these allegations”.

It happened when the Duke, 61, was given a date for a baked two days by the attorneys of Roberts starting March 10.

Andrew will be questioned by lawyers David Boies and Sigrid McCawley before they interview a woman who claims she saw the prince with Ms Giuffre at the Tramp nightclub in London in 2001, the same night as the infamous photo .

His former aide to the royal family, Robert Ashton Olney, will also be questioned by Boies, 80, who has a fearsome reputation as the “biggest killer” in the modern US judiciary.

Roberts, who now lives in Australia, has yet to agree to a date to be interviewed under oath by Andrew’s attorneys.

The 38-year-old mother is suing the prince in New York in a civil case for alleged sexual assault and battery use.

She said she was trafficked as a teenager to Queenadopted son’s favorite Epstein and Maxwell and had sex with Andrew on three separate occasions in 2001 – once at Maxwell’s Belgravia apartment, another at Epstein’s New York mansion and a third time on the Caribbean island of Little St James .

Prince’s legal team was unsuccessful in dismissing the case for technical reasons but is now refining their strategy ahead of a grand jury trial set for later this year.

‘EVER YOU CAN DO IT, DON’T SAY YOUR AGE’

They argue that Roberts should not be compensated because she was complicit in a “criminal enterprise” – the so-called “unclean hands” defense.

In court papers filed last month, they stated: “The alleged causes of Giuffre’s actions are wholly or partially prohibited by her own misconduct and the doctrine of unclean hands. “.

If Adriano refuses to testify, she could be disregarded in court and fined or face jail time.

Now 35 years old and living in Florida, Andriano’s testimony played a key role in the sentencing of Epstein’s accomplice Maxwell to 65 years in prison last December.

She revealed in court that Robets had approached her about “making money” at Epstein’s home.

Adriano declined to be named last month when she told the Daily Mail she was 14 years old when she was lured into Epstein’s sick world.

She said: “I can definitely pass 21 when I have makeup on.

“I did my own makeup, but Virginia gave me the clothes. She gave me tight skinny shorts with a spaghetti strap top with all my breasts exposed.

“She just said: ‘Whatever you do, don’t say your age.” And I didn’t even ask why. I agreed to it. “

She recalls giving Epstein a nude massage and seeing Giuffre have sex with him.

“I didn’t know what to do or say, or where to go, so I sat in my chair and watched until it was done,” she later said.

“We went back downstairs and Maxwell asked, ‘How are things going?’ Virginia looked at her to say it was a great session and that’s when Maxwell asked me for my phone number.”

She was paid $300 and would return to the mansion about 100 times over the next four years, where she was repeatedly abused by Epstein.

“I don’t think Virginia deserves anything less than what Maxwell is getting because she took me into a world of downward slopes,” she told the Mail.

But in the same interview, Andriano confirmed that Roberts texted her in 2001 saying she had slept with the Duke and showed her a copy of the now-famous photograph of Andrew with his arm I hugged Roberts as a teenager.

“I asked her if she had been to the palace,” Andriano said, adding: “And she said ‘I have to sleep with him’.

“I said ‘What? You’re in love with me,’ and she said, ‘No, I have to sleep with him’.

“She didn’t seem upset about it. She thought it was pretty cool.”

I didn’t know what to do or say, or where to go, so I sat in my chair and watched until it was over.

The prince’s lawyers are said to be conspiring to use Roberts’ comments to Andriano to claim the teenager bragged and that allegation is unprovable.

The Duke’s legal team has also claimed the photo of him and Roberts together is fake and demanded the original version.

Giuffre’s attorney, David Boies, previously said: “Virginia has said for years that her role in enabling other young women to participate is something she has always regretted.

“But that fact has nothing to do with the truth of her accusations [against Prince Andrew]. ”

The Sun Online has reached out to Mr Boies for comment.

A spokesman for the duke declined to comment.
