PRINCE Andrew may have been filmed on Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘paedo island’, one of Ghislaine Maxwell’s accusers has said.
Sarah Ransome has spoken about her ordeal on the island, during which she was raped by Epstein and tried to escape by swimming across shark infested waters.
She has been present at the trial of the 59-year-old socialite Maxwell, who been accused of “serving up” girls for former lover Epstein to abuse.
The Duke of York – who was a friend of Epstein – is widely reported to have visited Little St James in the Caribbean, dubbed ‘Paedo Island’ by locals.
In August this year Virginia Roberts, now 38, claimed in a civil lawsuit in the US Andrew assaulted her in New York, London and the island when she was 17.
The royal has strenuously denied any wrongdoing and strongly refuted the allegations made in the lawsuit.
Ransom has now revealed said that Epstein’s high-profile friends, including the Prince were monitored by hidden cameras on the island.
“I once lit a cigarette and Jeffrey, who hated smoking, came out of nowhere,” she told the Mail on Sunday.

“When I tried to escape I purposely chose a remote spot yet Ghislaine and security guards were there instantly.
“Jeffrey once told me, ‘I have tapes of every person who has ever been on my properties'.”
While there have been rumours of that Epstein filmed everyone who visited ‘Paedo Island’, Ransome is the first of his victims who was actually there to make the claim.
She recalled that such was Epstein’s obsession with surveillance he even had a tracking device attached to her phone.
Her suspicions arise from one time when she refused to go to his house, he immediately drew up alongside her in a limo.
She believes Maxwell will be found guilty and alleged “she enabled Jeffrey to do what he did”.
“I believe she is evil. She's a narcissist who thinks she has done nothing wrong. To her, we were nothing. I hope justice is done.
“This was a spider's web, a sophisticated trafficking operation. I was lured in because I was approached by girls my own age.”
Ransome has written about her experiences in a book Silenced No More, which will be published in the UK this week.
Epstein was found hanged in his New York jail cell while awaiting trial for child sex charges in 2019.
Because of his high-profile connections to Prince Andrew and Bill Clinton, many conspiracy theorists believe that Epstein did not kill himself.
Maxwell’s brother Ian has now said she too believes Epstein was murdered.
The prosecution wrapped up its case against Maxwell at the end of last week.
Prosecutors told the opening of her trial in New York head the Brit heiress a "dangerous predator" and said she and Epstein were “partners in crime”.
She is alleged to have walked the victims into Epstein's massage room lair – where she watched him molest them and sometimes even joined in.
The jury has also been shown pictures that show the intimate nature of their relationship, including at the Queen's Balmoral Residence, where they were hosted by Andrew.
The Duke of York has been approached for comment.
