Sarah Ferguson calls Prince Andrew 'this giant of a principled man' as she calls on ex-husband to 'stand firm' over Jeffrey Epstein sex allegations in extraordinary Instagram post supporting her ex-husband ahead of tonight's BBC interview


  • Sarah Ferguson has defended ex-husband Prince Andrew as a 'true gentleman' 
  • She said the Duke of York was 'steadfast to his duty' as well as 'kind' and 'good'
  • Andrew spoke to Emily Maitlis about his ties with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein
  • 'Prince Andrew & the Epstein Scandal' will air at 9pm on BBC2 tonight 


Sarah Ferguson has posted an extraordinary Instagram post in which she defended her ex-husband Prince Andrew, 'this giant of a principled man' amid allegations over his close friendship with billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The Duchess of York shared the bizarre and emotional tribute ahead of Andrew's interview tonight, praising him as a 'true and real gentleman' who 'dares to put his shoulder to the wind and stands firm with his sense of honour and truth'.
Andrew spoke with Emily Maitlis for the programme 'Prince Andrew & the Epstein Scandal', which is to air on BBC2 at 9pm on Saturday, where the duke addresses his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein - and claims he had sex with Virginia Roberts.  
Sarah Ferguson, 60, posted a series of photos of Andrew on Instagram with a long and heartfelt caption which read: 'It is so rare to meet people that are able to speak from their hearts with honesty and pure real truth, that remain steadfast and strong to their beliefs. 
'Andrew is a true and real gentleman and is stoically steadfast to not only his duty but also his kindness and goodness of always seeing the best in people. 
'I am deeply supportive and proud of this giant of a principled man, that dares to put his shoulder to the wind and stands firm with his sense of honour and truth.

'For so many years he has gone about his duties for Great Britain and The Monarch. It is time for Andrew to stand firm now, and that he has, and I am with him every step of the way and that is my honour. 
'We have always walked tall and strong, he for me and me for him. We are the best examples of joint parenting, with both our girls and I go back to my three C's... Communicate, compromise, compassion.'
Last month the Duchess of York spoke out on her ex-husband's ties to the disgraced billionaire Jeffrey Epstein for the first time, insisting she will support Prince Andrew amid the engulfing scandal surrounding the royal's friendship with the convicted paedophile. 
The duchess, who has remained close to Andrew since their split in 1996 and is the mother of his two daughters, talked up the importance of 'familyhood' when asked if she was standing by the prince.
She today joined model and race car driver Jodie Kidd in flooded areas of Venice - submerged by floods for the second time in a week as storms and winds brought fresh misery to a city facing £1 billion euros' worth of damage.


The Duke of York has been interviewed by Newsnight's Emily Maitlis at Buckingham Palace and will be broadcast on BBC 2 at 9pm on Saturday

Prince Andrew has maintained that he never 'witnessed or suspected any improper behaviour by Epstein' and strenuously denied any allegations of wrongdoing.
In a 'make or break' TV interview about the scandal tonight, he said it felt like' the right thing to do' to stay friends with Epstein and did so because he was 'too honourable' to refuse.
He said he recognises it was wrong and now regrets going to stay with Epstein in New York after the financier's release from prison on child sex offences. 
Referring to the Queen and the Royal Family, he admitted he 'let the side down'.
The Duke also said he does not remember meeting Virginia Roberts, the woman who claimed she had sex with him when she was 17.
He told the BBC's Emily Maitlis: 'It was a convenient place to stay. I mean I've gone through this in my mind so many times. At the end of the day, with a benefit of all the hindsight that one can have, it was definitely the wrong thing to do.
'But at the time I felt it was the honourable and right thing to do and I admit fully that my judgement was probably coloured by my tendency to be too honourable but that's just the way it is.' 
Andrew also said: 'The problem was the fact that once he had been convicted I stayed with him.
'That's the bit I kick myself for on a daily basis because it was not something that was becoming of a member of the Royal Family and we try and uphold the highest standards and practices and I let the side down, simple as that.' 
During the exchange, Andrew again rejects the claim by one of Epstein's victims, Virginia Roberts, that he had sex with her when she was 17.
The prince says he does not even remember meeting Miss Roberts, despite the existence of a photograph showing him with his arm around the teenager's bare waist alongside Epstein's alleged 'madam' Ghislaine Maxwell.
'She says she met you in 2001, she says she dined with you, danced with you at Tramp nightclub in London.
'She went on to have sex with you in a house in Belgravia belonging to Ghislaine Maxwell, your friend. Your response?' asks Miss Maitlis.
'I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever,' Andrew replies.
'You don't remember meeting her?' the interviewer asks.
'No,' Andrew firmly states.
The full interview, which was conducted at Buckingham Palace, will be shown on BBC 2 at 9pm tonight in a Newsnight special: Prince Andrew & The Epstein Scandal.
According to royal sources, the programme makes for uncomfortable viewing at times, but, they say, is a 'no holds barred' discussion of the Epstein case.
A friend of Prince Andrew told the Daily Mail's Richard Kay: 'In a way, he is saying "judge me". 
'Everything else had failed, he had no alternative.'
Insiders have also said that the Duke felt he had no choice but to speak out after being left 'paralysed' by his inability to defend his reputation. 
Fergie herself has a history with Epstein, having accepted £15,000 from the American businessman to help pay off a personal debt.
Epstein was arrested on July 6 by FBI agents after he landed at Teterboro airport in New Jersey following a flight from Paris Le Bourget airport in his private jet.
U.S. prosecutors had alleged that Epstein 'sexually exploited and abused dozens of minor girls' from 2002 to 2005 at his properties in New York and Florida. 
Epstein – who faced 45 years in prison – had entered a 'not guilty' plea when he appeared before judges on July 8.
He killed himself in the Manhattan jail on August 10 while faces sex trafficking charges.
Earlier this year the Duke admitted it was a 'mistake' to meet Epstein in New York in 2011 after the billionaire's release from prison for child sex offences.
