Prince Andrew says he couldn't have had sex with a 17-year-old because he was at a Pizza Express on the day in question
Reuters/Toby Melville; Google Maps Prince Andrew said he was busy on the day he has been accused of having sex with a 17-year-old, telling the BBC that he was at a Pizza Express, and stayed home with his children after. His accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, has alleged that she was coerced into having sex with the Prince on three occasions in 2001 and 2002, and paid for the encounters by Jeffrey Epstein. Prince Andrew said he remembered the Pizza Express detail "weirdly distinctly" because "going to Pizza Express in [the town of] Woking is an unusual thing for me to do. A very unusual thing for me to do." The Prince also said Giuffre's recollection of him "profusely sweating" was false — he said he didn't sweat at the time because of a medical condition he developed during the Falklands War.

Make it a vintage night: eco partywear
Borrow, embellish, reuse, upcycle… Looking great doesn’t have to cost the earthNewness is overrated. The most sustainable thing to wear to a party is the thing you already own. So, shop your wardrobe. “Party wear is usually not worn very often, so do you really have to buy something new?” asks personal stylist Anna Berkeley ( “And unless you’re a clinical minimalist, you might have overlooked something. When I’m doing wardrobe clearouts with clients they’re constantly saying, ‘Oh, I forgot about that!’” And if there’s something you are not wearing, is it because it needs adjusting? “I have a black Tibi dress that is a great fit, but it’s not quite the right length on my leg, so I’m going to get a tailor to add a feather trim to the bottom,” says Berkeley.Steph Stevens, a fashion editor and stylist whose clients include Alexa Chung, recently launched a consultancy service specialising in archive clothing that she sells or rents, with inspiration pictures on her Instagram feed @happydays_stephstevens. One of her tips for parties is tying a coloured ribbon around a shirt collar. “I like slightly unusual colours – my favourite is mint green, which looks great with white or black.” She also suggests taking your silk pyjamas out for the night. “They have to be a decent pair, but you can split them up so that you get two looks for the price of one. Wear the trousers with a dressy shoe, the shirt with a blazer and jeans.” And it doesn’t have to be all about the clothes. “A good red matt lipstick can up the tempo of an outfit.” She likes Glossier’s Generation G sheer matte in Zip.
