The video is believed to date back to 2010, shortly after Ms Keating moved to New York following a stint as a political consultant in NSW. 

It is not suggested that Ms Keating was involved in, or had any knowledge of, any improper or illegal conduct by Epstein or any of his associates.

It’s believed Ms Keating’s links to Epstein and the Prince came after she began dating millionaire hotelier Andre Balazs shortly after moving to New York.

Ms Keating was formerly reported as ‘a friend’ Ghislaine Maxwell, the recently convicted former girlfriend of Epstein.

She had appeared at an intimate cocktail party at Maxwell’s $15 million mansion in New York in June 2013 to help launch Ideapod, an online start-up Maxwell was involved with. 

Ms Keating had also earlier met Prince Andrew at the grand opening of the Meydan Racecourse in Dubai in March 2010. 

A graduate in politics and international relations from the University of NSW, Ms Keating made a name for herself in the US working for media company VICE before becoming chief sustainability and strategy officer for Maverick Management.

She was just nine when her father became Australian prime minister in 1991, after he’d already served as treasurer from 1983. 

Last week Prince Andrew was stripped of his ‘Royal Highness’ title and other military affiliations as a result of the ongoing fallout over his association with Epstein, who committed suicide inside his Manhattan jail cell in 2019. 

The Prince continues to face a US civil action over sexual assault allegations by Australia-based accuser Virginia Giuiffre.
