A video showing the Duke of York waving off a young woman from inside financier Jeffery Epstein's NY mansion has reignited speculation online, sending Buckingham Palace into full-on damage-control mode.
Before resigning, Acosta had defended his role in the case, saying he acted to ensure Epstein did not "walk free".
She claimed she had sex with the duke "three times, including one orgy" in London, at Epstein's home, and at an "orgy" on his private island in the Caribbean. He had pleaded not guilty to the charges, which carried a jail sentence of up to 45 years. He had pled not guilty to sex trafficking and conspiracy charges, and was held without bail.
The disgraced millionaire was taken into custody on federal sex trafficking and conspiracy charges related to the alleged abuse of hundreds of girls before he killed himself while awaiting trial.
Prince Andrew faced criticism for his friendship with the tycoon at the time, and he quit his job as United Kingdom trade envoy in 2011 as a result.

The Daily Mail published an exclusive report last week with new footage that captured Prince Andrew, or at least someone who really looked like Prince Andrew, surreptitiously speaking to a young woman at Jeffrey Epstein's Manhattan mansion in 2010.
Virginia Roberts alleged in court papers in Florida that she was forced to have sex with Andrew when she was 17, which is under the age of consent in the state.
A mutual friend of both men told Vanity Fair they phoned the prince after Epstein's conviction in 2011 but was rebuffed and told by Andrew: 'Being loyal to your friends is a virtue.
Prince Andrew said in a statement released by Buckingham Palace Sunday that allegations that he was involved in any "exploitation" are "abhorrent".
The prince has faced scrutiny over his links to the convicted sex offender before.
The clip dates from around the same time Andrew was photographed walking through Central Park in NY with Epstein.
According to the Daily Mail, the footage was taken less than an hour after Epstein left the house with a young blonde woman. "Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue", reads the statement, according to NBC.
