But she did add the royal had been “naive” continuing his friendship Jeremy Epstein.
Lady C, 70, told The Sun’s Executive Editor Dan Wootton on talkRADIO: “Everything I know about Prince Andrew, and he’s not a friend of mine, I’m friendly with people who are close to him, his tastes do not run in that direction.
“Think about it for two seconds, if Prince Andrew had anything to hide, do you think he would have associated with Jeremy Epstein when he came out of prison.
“The mere fact that he continued associating with him shows that Prince Andrew is if anything too loyal and very naïve.”

She says the picture of Andrew with a then 17 year old Virginia proves nothing[/caption]
Referring to the infamous photo of Andrew with a then 17 year old Virginia, she said: “Even if the photo was not doctored it proves nothing.
“The fact that Andrew was photographed with her would tend to prove that Prince Andrew had nothing to hide and therefore Ms Robertson’s story is a complete invention.”
And the I’m A Celeb star also took aim at Virginia’s claim she was a “sex slave”, adding: “You cannot say you were a sex slave when you were paid hundreds of thousands of dollars. It means you were a sex w**** not a sex slave.”
Earlier today on US TV Viriginia claimed she had sex with Prince Andrew in a toilet when aged 17 after the royal plied her with vodka at a posh nightclub.
