Prince Andrew was pictured today on horseback at Windsor Castle, where his mother and father are currently in isolation.

The Duke of York, 60, who lives at the Royal Lodge just three miles away, arrived at the castle in a Range Rover accompanied by a married woman.

The Queen, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, are in isolation at their Berkshire residence after leaving Norfolk for month-long lockdown.

Today is only Andrew’s second appearance since the publication of the Ghislaine Maxwell bombshell files last month.

The Queen’s second son has been accused of failing to assist U.S. prosecutors with their investigation into billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and financier Ghislaine Maxwell.

Putting his troubles aside, the father of two, wrapped up warm for fall sporting a black polo collar and face mask as he drove his 4 x 4 in the field.

He later donned a black coat and riding hat as he rode a horse with a blonde groom, who donned a remembrance poppy and riding pants.

Prince Andrew has come under new pressure to cooperate with the FBI after a second statement was given by Ghislaine Maxwell last week, the alleged madam of his pedophile friend Jeffrey Epstein.

The British socialist, who is jailed in New York awaiting trial for child sex trafficking and perjury, was questioned three months after being toasted for seven hours.

The transcript of that first interview was released last month, and Maxwell’s lawyers are now expected to fight to keep the second of July 2016 private.

But the 58-year-old team will face lawyers for Epstein’s victim Virginia Roberts, who are expected to argue that it should be released in its entirety, The Sun reported.

Ms Roberts, now known as Virginia Giuffre, claims she had sex with the Duke of York three times when she was 17, but he strenuously denies the allegations.

A source close to the matter told The Sun that Maxwell was asked to answer questions she did not answer in the first interview in April, and that Andrew “came forward.”

But a source close to the Duke, 60, told MailOnline: “The Duke has not done anything illegal and therefore has nothing to fear from the unsealing of documents of a court case at any time. The truth will come out, and soon.

Documents from the first interview released last month revealed that Andrew had repeatedly called Ms Giuffre a “liar”, claiming that “everything she said was a lie.”

The exchange took place during a phone call between the two as scandal revolved around them when Ms Giuffre told the bombshell she was forced to sleep with the prince.

THE NAME OF PRINCE ANDREW WAS MISSING IN THE DESPOSITION OF THE COURT OF MAXWELL

The Duke of York’s name has been redacted from Ghislaine Maxwell’s court deposition documents.

Alleged victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre has accused Prince Andrew of having sex with her when she was 17.

More than 400 pages went public on Thursday for the first time. Maxwell is currently in prison in New York awaiting trial for sex trafficking.

Speaking in her adopted hometown of Cairns in far north Queensland, American Ms Giuffre said she was glad the documents were unsealed, wondering why several names, including the one of the prince, had been redacted.

She told ABC, “I feel very angry.

“I don’t understand why we are protecting someone who is hiding behind mom’s skirt and saying ‘I didn’t do it’. His name should have been in the deposition.

Andrew’s visit to Windsor Castle comes as it has been revealed Her Majesty is currently in self-isolation at home with Prince Philip after leaving Norfolk for the month-long lockdown.

It comes after a revolt among Sandringham workers after refusing to self-quarantine away from their own families.

This led to the Queen, 94, and the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, spending two weeks together at Sandringham’s Wood Farm cottage last month rather than in the main house.

It is hoped that the isolation of Prince Philip and the Queen in Windsor will help ease tensions, after employees at the Sandringham estate revolted against a plan to keep them in a coronavirus bubble there over Christmas .

A team of around 20 employees had been asked to stay on the monarch’s estate in Norfolk without their supporting families, Prince Philip and other members of the royal family during the holiday season.

But the group – which would involve cleaning, laundry and maintenance workers – are said to have mutinied because they did not want to isolate themselves from loved ones for four weeks.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace told FEMAIL: “No final decision was made over Christmas.

The Duke of York will not be attending tomorrow’s Remembrance Sunday service at the cenotaph and sources say he is “unlikely” to make another appearance.

Royal assistants were said to have been “anxious” about how to handle the difficult situation.

Plans for a significantly reduced service this year would have given them the perfect excuse not to include the besieged prince in the traditional royal lineup on November 8.
