British royal Prince Andrew is expected to address reports linking him to an underage sex scandal when he holds a televised meeting with business leaders and politicians in Switzerland this week (beg19Jan15).

Prince Charles' brother has been accused of sleeping with Virginia Roberts on three occasions when she was just 17 years old during his friendship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Andrew is expected to strongly deny the allegations and speak about the controversy for the first time at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday (22Jan15).

However, a Buckingham Palace spokesman has declined to comment on the reports, adding, "The media arrangements for the Duke's visit to Davos have not been determined as yet."
