Prince Andrew Arrives In Australia Amid Fallout From Epstein Scandal

Prince Andrew will attend a university event as part of his work trip to Perth as he continues to be dogged by questions about his links to late US billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The Duke of York has kept a low profile since arriving in Perth on Monday evening onboard an Emirates flight and being whisked away to a suite at the swanky Como The Treasury hotel.

He will host two events for Pitch@Palace Australia 3.0, starting at Murdoch University on Wednesday where the media will be able to attend.

The media have not been invited to a second event at Government House on Friday.

Prince Andrew's visit has been marred by the Epstein scandal amid reports the FBI is expanding its investigation.

The disgraced US financier took his own life in August in a New York prison cell where he was detained on charges of sex trafficking teenage girls.

The Sunday Times newspaper says the FBI expects to interview alleged trafficking victims over the next two months and Scotland Yard is ready help.

The newspaper says the FBI is looking to several possible victims in the hope they can provide more details about the Duke's links to Epstein.

Scotland Yard previously held an investigation after Virginia Giuffre made allegations against Prince Andrew, but that probe was dropped in 2015.

The Duke has denied all allegations against him, saying they are "without foundation".
