But here are five more witnesses who could be called to testify against the Duke of York and link him to Miss Giuffre, Epstein and Maxwell.
Epstein’s former personal assistant Johanna Sjoberg claims the Duke groped her breasts when she was 21 years old when she sat on the sofa with him and Miss Giuffre.
Court documents reveal Andrew allegedly touched Florida hairdressers, 41, as they pose for a photo.

Ms. Sjoberg, an American, alleges the incident took place in New York, hometown of late father Epstein, according to court papers.
Ms. Giuffre’s attorneys also secured .’s testimony Steve Scully, who worked for Epstein.

The 71-year-old claims to have seen the prince on Epstein’s private island and even spoke to him while he was with Ms Giuffre.
“They were kissing too. Virginia was standing there, she looked like a deer caught in the headlights of a car.”
Scully said they were “collision and grinding” for a few minutes before lying on a poolside lounger.
He had previously told The Sun that he was willing to give evidence in court.
Ms Giuffre’s ex-boyfriend testified that she confided in him about the alleged abuse 20 years ago.
Anthony Figueroa, 39, said his then-girlfriend was “scared” of what Maxwell and Epstein made her do to Andrew.
He claimed Ms Giuffre knew what the lowly couple expected of her – including acting as bait to attract more victims – but she “didn’t want to do it”.
The Duke of York has so far avoided questioning what he knows, but Mr Figueroa is urging Andrew to “face the case”.
I said Mirror: “Being royal makes no difference. Andrew has to face the incident.
“I remember the first time Virginia mentioned him to him in 2001. She knew she was going to meet him and said she knew what they wanted her to do to him and she didn’t want to do it.
“She said she was scared and worried. I told her she had to do whatever it took to feel safe.”
In addition to being intimate with the prince, Figueroa claims her teenage partner was also repeatedly forced into sex by Maxwell while Epstein watched.
Epstein’s longtime pilot, Larry Visoski, testified at Maxwell’s trial that he flew VIP guests to luxury locations around the world – including Prince Andrew.
Mr Visoski, who was Epstein’s pilot for more than 25 years, also recalled Ms Giuffre’s flight.
Asked if he missed Ms. Giuffre, Mr. Visoski said: “Yes. A shorter woman with dirty blonde hair. She doesn’t look young.
“I mean, whatever you decipher is the definition of youth. But she’s a woman in my category.”
Mr. Visoski said he flies Epstein every four days on average between his homes in New York, Florida, New Mexico, the US Virgin Islands and Paris.
The prince will appear on flight logs from Epstein’s private jet trips and appear in Maxwell’s “little black book” of nearly 2,000 famous contacts.

She claims Maxwell cuddled her as Epstein pleased himself before the twisted financier abused her with sex toys.
Jane, now in her 40s and an actress, also testified in court that a “riot” had taken place in the mansion’s massage room several times and that both Maxwell and Epstein were accused of participating. .
She also testified at Maxwell’s trial that she was on a flight with Prince Andrew around the same time that the social site and Epstein sexually abused her.
When Maxwell’s attorney Laura Menninger asked if Andrew had ever taken one of the flights she was on, Jane replied, “Yes.”
