PRINCE ANDREW sat next to the Queen on their way to church 24 hours after the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein in his jail cell.

It came as the Duke of York faced renewed scrutiny over his friendship with the American paedophile financier amid a string of lurid sex allegations.

The 59-year-old royal also shared the car to Crathie Kirk on the Balmoral estate yesterday morning with his daughter, Princess Beatrice, while the Prince of Wales drove himself and the Duchess of Cornwall.

The united front came during the third week of the Queen’s summer holiday in Scotland. Andrew’s ex-wife Sarah Ferguson is believed to have joined them there.

The duke may be dragged deeper into the Epstein scandal as sources said an FBI investigation would now switch to the billionaire’s associates.
