Photo of Prince Andrew posing with ‘sex victim’ is real, claims photographer who copied it
A PHOTO of mortified royal Prince Andrew posing with his alleged teenage sex victim is genuine, insisted the photographer who copied it last night.
He has suggested that the image of him with his arm was altered to include 17-year-old Virginia Roberts.
Andrew, then 41, is seen grinning with Virginia at sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell’s stables in Belgravia, London, in 2001.
Virginia showed it to news photographer Michael Thomas ten years later.
Andrew and jailed sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell’s claims, dubbed Snapper, that the original may have been faked are “ridiculous” and “absurd”.
The original is said to have a date stamp showing it was developed on March 13, 2001, three days after Virginia allegedly had sex with Andrew.
Mr Thomas told The Mail on Sunday: “It’s ridiculous that Ghislaine should say it’s fake.”
