Prince Andrew has received a stark warning surrounding his alleged part in the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking ring.
His accuser Virginia Roberts claimed the Duke of York should be worried following Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest – despite him denying any wrongdoing.
Ms Roberts told CBS: “Prince Andrew should be panicking, he knows he’s guilty.
“He needs to be held accountable. We need to show the world that the rich and the mighty can fall too.”
Virginia also revealed Ghislaine Maxwell – who denies any wrongdoing – was the ‘mastermind’ behind the Jeffrey Epstein abuse.
The British socialite is currently awaiting trial for six counts of sex trafficking and perjury in relation to her relationship with the financier.
Yet, Ms Roberts said: “She is a monster – she’s worse than Epstein. She did things even worse than Epstein did.
“I asked her: ‘Why are you having all these girls come in and sleep with your boyfriend?’ She was like: ‘So I don’t have to do it all the time’. She made a joke out of it.
“She did it to keep Jeffrey happy. She did it because she loves the control of people. Jeffrey was a sick paedophile but she was the mastermind.”
Maxwell is set to go on trial next year, following a hearing in which she was denied bail.

MAXWELL ‘MARRIED TO PROTECT HER MILLIONS’
Ghislaine Maxwell married in secret to protect her $10 million fortune according to a former friend.
Maxwell’s marriage means that if she is convicted of the six counts she’s up against then her substantial assets will be harder to distinguish from her husbands.
Ghislaine has refused to identify the man when negotiating with investigators who were covering her finances before her bail hearing last Tuesday.
She is believed to have married millionaire Scott Borgerson, whom she reportedly lived with in Manchester-by-the-Sea, near Boston.
He denies their relationship but neighbours reported seeing her jogging around town with him according to the Daily Mail.
Victims of Jeffrey Epstein can now claim compensation from the paedo financier’s $630million estate after a bombshell ruling by a judge in the US Virgin Islands.
