Never let them see you sweat.
The Duke of York claimed in a new BBC interview that a Falklands War injury left him physically incapable of “sweating profusely” — thereby disproving Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre’s descriptions of their perspiration-drenched 2001 evening of dancing and sex.
In an interview taped at Buckingham Palace that aired Saturday night, Prince Andrew insisted he was at home with the kids on the evening Giuffre insists was the first of three times they had sex.
Prince Andrew was a “hideous dancer” who “was sweating all over me” at Tramps nightclub, Giuffre said in September.
Later that night, Prince Andrew stayed at the London home of Epstein gal pal Ghislaine Maxwell, who Giuffre said instructed her to do for the prince what she does for Epstein.
“Never happened,” Andrew said in the Saturday interview.
The night Giuffre — who also uses the last name Roberts — believes the dancing and sweating happened, “I was home; I was with the children,” Andrew insisted.
And he didn’t — couldn’t — have sweated.
“There’s a slight problem with, with, with, with the sweating,” Andrew told journalist Emily Maitlis.
“Because I have a peculiar medical condition which is that I don’t sweat, or I didn’t sweat at the time,” he said.
“Because I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenaline in the Falklands War, when I was shot at. And I simply — it was, it was almost impossible for me to sweat,” the royal insisted.
“And it was only because I have done a number of things in the recent past that I am starting to be able to do that again,” he said, vaguely.
“So I’m afraid to say there’s a medical condition that says I didn’t do it.”
