PRINCE Andrew faces fresh pressure over a second deposition given by Ghislaine Maxwell.

The British socialite, currently in jail accused of being a pimp for US billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, was questioned again three months after an evasive seven-hour grilling.

Testimony from that first interview for a civil case brought by Virginia Giuffre was published last week.

Ms Giuffre claims she was one of Epstein’s sex slaves and slept with Andrew three times — which he denies.

Her lawyers are expected to argue the second deposition, from July 2016, should also be made public in full.

A source close to the legal case told The Sun: “Maxwell was asked to answer questions that she did not answer on the previous occasion.

“Prince Andrew did come up during the course of the interview.

Maxwell, 58, is likely to fight once again to keep details of the case private.

Short extracts which are public include lawyer David Boies asking her if Ms Giuffre was underage when she gave Epstein massages. She says: “I don’t really remember Virginia around that time.

“Only in the most general terms. It would be somebody who would give him a ­massage, and that’s it.”

A source close to Prince Andrew’s legal team said: “He has nothing to fear from the unsealing of any ­documents at any time. The truth will out, and soon.”

It was reported yesterday that Andrew, 60, is keen to return to royal duties.

But last night a source told The Sun that “nothing can happen” until after Maxwell’s trial next ­summer.
