Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein’s photos were questioned with some claiming those shots were staged.

According to New Idea, the Duke of York’s aides have enlisted forensic experts to examine the photos of the royal with the convicted pedophile. Many felt that the images were only “doctored” and “staged.” Prince Andrew reportedly recruited a team to examine the validity of the photos that put him in the middle of a sexual abuse scandal.

One photo featured the royal walking through Central Park in New York with the disgraced financier, two years after Epstein admitted to his sex trafficking crimes. Queen Elizabeth II’s third child was also photographed in the London residence of Epstein’s former partner, Ghislaine Maxwell in 2001.

Prince Andrew’s lawyers questioned the validity of the photo after sources claimed that his fingers appeared “too chubby” in the photograph. Also, the height difference of Prince Andrew and Virginia Roberts Guiffre appeared off.

“Prince Andrew does not recognise the photo. And the more you look at it, the odder it gets. The Duke is 6ft. Virginia Roberts Giuffre is 5ft 3in,” an insider said.

“There are certainly not nine inches between them. There is something decidedly wrong about it.”

However, the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI were reportedly convinced that the pictures were authentic. Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace had already denied the royal’s involvement with Epstein’s sex trafficking scandal.

“Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue. t is emphatically denied that the Duke of York had any form of sexual contact with Virginia Roberts. Any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation,” a statement from the palace read.

Due to Prince Andrew’s connections with Epstein, Princess Beatrice wanted to ban her own father on her big day. Princess Eugenie’s sister reportedly didn’t want any drama on her big day.

A recent report claimed that Princess Beatrice already made a heartbreaking phone call informing the Duke of York that she did not want him to walk her down the aisle on her wedding day. The bride-to-be was reportedly down in the dumps over the shame and backlash caused by her father.
