The US billionaire committed suicide in a New York jail last month, soon after arriving from Paris in one of his private jets.
The caretaker of his Paris property has now sensationally revealed: “I saw Prince Andrew there.”
The key witness, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told The Sun on Sunday: “Prince Andrew stayed at the address a number of times including when Epstein was not there.”
Reports in France say the Duke is expected to avoid travelling to the country while the probe is ongoing amid aides’ fears he could be hauled in for questioning.
‘SEX SLAVE’ IS KEY WITNESS
A hugely-important witness in the French enquiry is Epstein “sex slave” Virginia Roberts, who claims she was forced to have sex with Andrew when she was 17.
Andrew, 59, has repeatedly denied her claims. Virginia is prepared to testify against him in court, saying that he was “an abuser, a participant” in a worldwide sex trafficking ring that included 12-year-old twin girls being “recruited” in Paris.
The girls, whose identities are being withheld, are said to have been sent to the US for Epstein to have sex with, while numerous other girls were attacked in Paris.
The new whistleblower has been the caretaker of the Avenue Foch apartment since Epstein bought it in the early 2000s.
Epstein was jailed in the US in 2008 for over a year but it is not clear when the whistleblower’s allegations relate to.
PAEDO PARIS LAIR RAID
Agents from France’s Office for the Suppression of Violence against Persons used keys provided by the man to carry out their raid.
An investigating source said: “The apartment was searched from top to bottom, and everybody who was associated with (Epstein) will now need to be spoken to.
“Those regularly in residence in the Foch property included politicians, business people and plenty of young models and masseurs, who ended up being raped.
Guests also included Epstein’s girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, 57. She denies any criminal behaviour.
Commenting on the French enquiry, a prosecuting source said: “The enquiry is ongoing. An appeal has been made for witnesses.”

Buckingham Palace refused to comment about the development.
Andrew has previously said in a statement: “At no stage during the limited time I spent with him (Epstein) did I see, witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction.”
