Meghan Markle 'horrified' by Prince Andrew's Jeffrey Epstein interview: sources

Meghan Markle was “horrified” by parts of Prince Andrew’s disastrous BBC interview, according to a report Friday.

The Duchess of Sussex was disturbed by the way the 59-year-old duke denied having sex with Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged teenage victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre, sources told The Telegraph.

Markle — who works with a charity to support female sexual abuse survivors — felt “uncomfortable” when Prince Andrew said he would remember sleeping with the then-17-year-old girl because sex, for a guy, is a “positive act,” according to the outlet.

During the BBC interview, reporter Emily Maitlis asked Prince Andrew if he had ever had sex with Giuffre or “any young woman trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein.”

He responded, “No, and without putting too fine a point on it, if you’re a man it is a positive act to have sex with somebody. You have to take some sort of positive action and so therefore if you try to forget it’s very difficult to try and forget a positive action and I do not remember anything.”

PRINCE ANDREW TO 'STEP BACK' FROM PUBLIC DUTIES OVER JEFFREY EPSTEIN RELATIONSHIP 

Earlier this week, the Duke was kicked out of his offices at Buckingham Palace over the “car crash” of an interview.

He has been accused of having sex with Giuffre in 2001 when she was just 17 years old.
