Spitting Image puppet
Epstein’s former PA Ms Sjoberg has claimed that her alleged incident with Andrew took place at the the pedophile’s New York townhouse.
She says the prince touched her breast while a latex puppet of Andrew from UK satirical TV show Spitting Image was being used to abuse then 17-year-old Ms Giuffre by Epstein’s madam Ghislaine Maxwell.
Ms Sjoberg – who was not an alleged victim at the New York trial which found Maxwell, 60, guilty of sex trafficking of minors in December – first told of her encounter with Andrew in 2007.
Described as a “church-going all American brunette” from Maine, she claimed to have met Andrew after arriving at Epstein’s mansion following a day of sightseeing in New York.
She said: “Prince Andrew was there and Ghislaine and a couple of other girls my age.
“Andrew was very charming. I didn’t know exactly who he was but felt that I knew him.
“She (Maxwell) came down with a present for him – a latex puppet of him from Spitting Image.
“We had a picture taken. Virginia, another girl there, sat on a chair and had the puppet on her lap.
“Andrew sat on another chair, I sat on his lap – and he put his hand on my breast.
“Ghislaine put the puppet’s hand on Virginia’s breast, then Andrew put his hand on mine.”
