IT IS one of the weirdest parts of the Duke of York’s car crash interview with BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis in November 2019.
Asked about accuser Virginia Giuffre’s claim he was “sweating” when he allegedly danced together in London’s Tramp nightclub, Prince Andrew famously said he couldn’t break a sweat.
On the night of March 10, 2001, Giuffre, who said she was trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell to have sex with Prince Andrew, claimed that she danced with the Duke before they returned. Ghislaine’s house.
There, the infamous photo of the Queen’s favorite son with his arm around 17-year-old Virginia was taken, Ghislaine continued.
Then, Virginia says, the pair had sex and Epstein paid her $10,000 (about £8,000).
But when asked about the claims, Andrew said he was at Pizza Express in Woking, Surrey. He also casts doubt on Virginia’s recollection of the night.
In the interview, Andrew said: “There is a small problem with sweating [claim] because I have a medical condition especially I don’t sweat or I don’t sweat at the time. “
He added: “I wasn’t breaking a sweat at the time because I had suffered what I would describe as an adrenalin overdose during the Falkland War when I was shot.”
Andrew goes on to say that the situation has cleared up. However, there have been at least five times since this time when the Duke has been photographed appearing to be sweating or recorded by witnesses as sweating.
Chinawhite Nightclub, London, 2000
Pictures from July 2000 show Prince Andrew leaving London’s Chinawhite nightclub in Soho late at night.
He has an unbuttoned blue shirt and appears sweaty and disoriented.
The legendary London nightclub, a favorite haunt of celebrities for years and his grandson Prince Harry, serves as the host for the 40-year-old Duke of York.
Tramp, London, 2001
Without a doubt, the most damaging photo for Prince Andrew was the one allegedly taken of him after leaving London’s Tramp nightclub with Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell and Virginia Giuffre.
Giuffre stated in an interview with BBC’s Panorama that Andrew was “the most disgusting dancer I’ve ever seen in my life”.

She added: “It was horrible and this guy was sweating all over me, his sweat was… basically rain everywhere, I was… damaged by it, but I know I have to keep him happy because that’s what Jeffrey and Ghislaine have come to expect from me.”
In the infamous photo taken later that night, Andrew appears to be wearing a blue shirt that closely resembles the shirt he had worn when he left Chinawhite a few months earlier.
Andrew has denied ever meeting Giuffre and has maintained his chastity.
Saint Tropez, 2007
In a photo from a party in July 2007, the shiny-faced, wide-eyed and grinning Andrew is seen receiving a hug from American social media site Chris Von Aspen as she tries to lick him.
Other photos taken the same night show the prince wrapping his arms around Von Aspen’s waist and neck as she dances in a white mini dress.
The Billionaire’s Party, Saint Tropez, 2007
Another set of photos from the same year showed the Duke dancing with Canadian socialist Pascal Borubeau at a party hosted by billionaire Tony Murray in a French resort.
He appeared sweaty and wild-eyed as he posed for pictures with his daughter, Princess Beatrice, who would then be about 18-19 years old.
One former partygoer in Saint Tropez told Mail Online in 2019: “These have been really crazy years for Andrew. He’s clearly going through a full-blown midlife crisis.
“He would be 47 or 48 years old by then, divorced from Sarah Ferguson, and attracting his attention from young women.”
Golf in Buckingham Palace
Former Royal Guard Paul Page claims he saw the prince sweat while practicing golf in the gardens at Buckingham Palace.
Page, who was later convicted of participating in the £3 million fraud, also said Andrew made the officers collect his golf balls when they were supposed to be guarding him.
However, Andrew’s claim that he couldn’t sweat was aided by someone who knew him at the time.
Former US intelligence officer Allan Starkie recalls one night in 1992 when the Duke and Duchess of York visited the Annabel nightclub in Mayfair, central London, just weeks before they announced their separation.
Starkie recalls last week: “It was very warm at Annabel’s that night, and Andrew was wearing a thick woolen blue suit.
“The evening was nearly continuous, and I watched in amazement as he returned from each dance, escorting his partners quite wet, but always dry himself.
“It was extraordinary. The rest of us were all sweating profusely, but he didn’t seem to have a single drop of sweat on his body.”
Earlier this month, Giuffre’s lawyers announced they were asking the prince to turn over his medical records to prove he had a medical condition that prevented him from sweating.
His legal team denied the request, citing it as “harassment and search for unrelated confidential and private information and documents”.
In 2019, a former aide claimed that it was actually the hair loss treatment the Duke was undergoing to stop him from sweating.
Despite the assistant’s claims, Dr. Sarah Jarvis, GP and Clinical Director at Patient.infotold The Sun Online that there are limited medications that can stop sweating.
“There’s a long list of medications that can cause dehydration, the inability to sweat,” she says. These include treatments used to manage medication side effects. with severe mental illness, along with treatments for epilepsy, high blood pressure, glaucoma, osteoporosis, and mountain sickness.
“But overall, very few people taking these drugs develop anhidrosis.
“There are only a few medicines licensed in the UK for the management of male hair loss: one is a pill and the other is a topical lotion.
“None of them had anhidrosis as a side effect, to my knowledge.”
And Dr Hilary Jones added: “I can’t think of any reason why hair loss treatments, whether involving drugs or implants, would interfere with normal sweating.”
