Prince Andrew dated the Caprice model and left her on one of their dates on the Queen’s throne in Buckingham Palace, it is claimed.
The Duke of York, 60, met 48-year-old American lingerie designer during a dinner party and the pair dated in 2000 for two months, reports The sun.
On one of the dates, he took her to Buckingham Palace and had her take a decorative bowl without staff knowing, according to the newspaper.
The couple only went on a few dates before introducing him to a friend of hers, an American masseuse named Denise Martell, with whom he had spent 10 years.
The date at Buckingham Palace would have happened only a few months before he allegedly slept with Virginia Roberts Guiffre – when she was only 17.

A source close to Caprice told The Sun: “As an American, she was thoroughly concerned with the idea that he was part of the royal family.
“He took her twice to Buckingham Palace and on one occasion she sat on the Queen’s throne.
“She saw a bowl that she liked and asked Andrew if she could steal it and send it to her mother. She claims he admitted her, and her mother loved it! “

The couple were friends for two months and went on “platonic” dates, including two in the palace.

Members of the royal family may invite guests to the palace, but it is a protocol to notify staff before they show them around
Caprice, originally from California but living in London, ended their friendship when she was linked to the prince in the press.
She founded him with Mrs. Martell and the couple had a ten-year relationship.
It is also assumed that Prince Andrew told Caprice that his then 16-year-old cousin Prince Harry was jealous of their friendship.
Harry, now 35, had a weakness for Caprice and had her calendar on his bedroom wall in Eton.
Caprice, currently on ITV’s Dancing On Ice and dating Rod Stewart, stopped accepting the royal party’s calls after she decided to end things with him.

She had no romantic interest in him and was only interested in more information about the royal family, her friend claims.
Prince Andrew was forced to resign last year after his disastrous Newsnight interview with Emily Maitlis about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein.
Andrew and Epstein, who committed suicide while awaiting a 66-year-old lawsuit, became friends through Epstein’s ex-girlfriend and “madame” Ghislaine Maxwell.
Virginia Roberts Guiffre, now living in Australia, claims to have had sex with Prince Andrew three times, including one when she was 17.
She says he was cared for by Maxwell and became the sex slave of pedophile Epstein.
Andrew, a father of two, therefore denies any relationship with her and claims that a picture of them was promoted together in London.
