Prince Andrew ‘grinded against and groped’ Virginia Roberts on Jeffrey Epstein’s private Caribbean island, a witness has claimed.
Steve Scully, 70, said he saw the Duke of York fooling around by the pool for several minutes with a bikini-clad blonde which he insists was sex slave Ms Roberts.
Mr Scully, who maintained the internet and phone signal on Little St James for the billionaire paedophile, made the bombshell accusations in an interview with the Sun on Sunday.
Andrew has strenuously denied Ms Roberts allegations that she was forced to have sex with him three times in 2001.

Ms Roberts – now known as Ms Giuffre – also claims she was coerced into having an orgy with Andrew on Epstein’s luxury hideaway.
It was on this sun-kissed bolthole where Mr Scully insists he saw Andrew and Ms Roberts getting intimate some time between 2001 and 2004.
The father-of-three said: ‘He was grabbing her ass and stuff like that. They were kissing.
‘He was grinding against her and groping her.’
As he watched the couple, Mr Scully said he was acutely aware how much younger the woman was, and that she ‘stood like a kid would stand behind a parent’
This made him feel uncomfortable as he believed their relationship ‘wasn’t appropriate’.

But Mr Scully also claimed that the woman believed to be Ms Roberts was not resisting the advances from Andrew, whose face was a picture of ‘excitement’.
The witness said he bumped into Andrew holding hands with the blonde, and even recalled his conversation with the royal.
‘I said, “Your Highness,” and he said, “No, it’s Andrew”. I said, “I’m sorry, I really didn’t know how to address you”,’ according to the Sun on Sunday.
Mr Scully, who lives on the nearby island of St Thomas and worked for Epstein between 1999 and 2006, said he would repeat his allegation in court under oath.

Ms Roberts claims the prince abused her three times – once at Epstein’s New York apartment, once in the Caribbean, and once at the London home of Ghislane Maxwell, Epstein’s alleged madam.
Speaking about her first alleged encounter with Andrew in London, she said she was taken to Tramp nightclub where she recalls dancing with the ‘sweating’ prince.
After leaving the nightclub, Ms Roberts said: ‘In the car Ghislaine tells me that I have to do for Andrew what I do for Jeffrey.’
Her lawyer tonight described Mr Scully as a ‘significant witness’.
Andrew has been attacked by US attorneys for Epstein’s alleged victims for not cooperating with the case.
Earlier this week, a school bus urging him to comply drove outside Buckingham Palace.
Buckingham Palace last night declined to comment.
