According to the Daily Mail, a close friend of Prince Andrew said that during the duke’s party days, things were so wild that he could have forgotten ever meeting his sexual assault accuser Virginia Guiffre.

Now a close friend to the prince is coming forward with a strange defense, claiming that the duke partied so hard that he could very well not remember ever meeting Giuffre.

Royal Family News: Prince’s Friend Says ‘Nightly Parties’ Contributed to Foggy Memory
According to the source, they were all having such a wild time partying that it would be no surprise had the duke forgotten any one of his many exploits. 76-year-old author and friend to the prince Michael Wynne-Parker said that he and Andrew were uninhibited during the time that Virginia Roberts Guiffre alleges she was trafficked to have sex with the prince.
“In those days,” he said, “we were having almost nightly parties,” adding that the pair would go to clubs and there would be 20 girls. “Have a dance with this one, have a dance with that one. And then you’d end up in bed with that one.” Then, he said, you might not remember the person, even five years hence. Royal Family News: Andrew’s Friend Recalls a ‘Merry-go-round of Promiscuity’
Wynne-Parker opined that it was this “merry-go-round of promiscuity” that explained why the 63-year-old prince may not have been able to recall Guiffre. The prince recently reached an out-of-court settlement with his accuser despite making no admission of guilt.
Wynne-Parker added that, even if the prince had met Guiffre those many years ago, he would not likely remember her now. “We were living in wild times in those days. Wild times.”
It’s also worth noting that Wynne-Parker claims to have never once seen an underage girl accompanying him and the prince, “they were all in their early to mid-30s.” So, despite defending the Duke of York’s lack of recollection, it’s clear, the prince’s friend believes him to be innocent.
