One of the lawyers for Jeffrey Epstein’s victims wants to speak to everyone named in his infamous black book – including the Queen’s nephew David Armstrong-Jones.
The Earl of Snowdon, widely known by his professional name David Linley, was in the paedophile’s list of contacts.
Others included some of the world’s most powerful people,
including Donald Trump and former US president Bill Clinton.
Florida-based Spencer Kuvin, representing several Epstein victims, urged the royal to speak to investigators, alongside his cousin Prince Andrew.
There is no suggestion the Earl is accused of any wrongdoing or has any information about Prince Andrew’s friendship with Epstein, who died in jail in 2019, or his socialite pal Ghislaine Maxwell.
But Mr Kuvin told the Sunday People: “Anyone with information about Epstein, Maxwell and any of their comings and goings over the past two decades and more should come forward and talk,
including Viscount Linley.
He added: “I am never surprised at the growing list of people that became Epstein’s unfortunate friends.
“He worked his way into every part of society, high and low.”
The Earl is known as the royal carpenter due to his high-end furniture business Linley’s. His mother Margaret, the Queen’s sister, died in 2002 and he became the 2nd Earl of Snowdon after his father died in 2017.
The Earl, now set to divorce after more than 25 years of marriage, was picked by his first cousin Prince Charles as No2 in The Prince’s Foundation.
The appointment in 2018 raised eyebrows as he was chosen ahead of William and Harry.
A friend said: “David is very, very close to the Queen and Prince Charles. He goes to Sandringham at Christmas and Balmoral in the summer. He is George VI’s grandson and in the inner circle of royals.
He is also Mr Non-Grand Royal.
He turns up on his cycle in a high-vis jacket and gets mistaken for a warden. He is popular and social.”
His daughter Lady Margarita, 17, was a flower girl for the Duchess of Cambridge when she wed William.
Mr Kuvin again called for Prince Andrew to speak to prosecutors. He added: “We’ve always believed Andrew should testify about what he saw at Epstein’s various mansions.”
Prince Andrew denies any wrongdoing and has stated that he has offered to speak to the FBI. The Earl of Snowdon declined to comment.
