Party-loving Prince Andrew enjoyed a wild night with a glamorous US socialite who he followed to the toilet and later gave a head massage to, a mutual friend has claimed.

The scandal-hit Duke of York reportedly got up close to Chris Von Aspen in Saint Tropez back in July 2007.

Guests at the glitzy bash, thrown by a Libyan businessman in the south of France, saw the Prince, then 47, cavort with the 27-year-old.

The pair were playfully pictured dancing the night away after being introduced by artist Jeffery Dread.

Images from the encounter have resurfaced as Andrew fights for his future after being told he must face a civil trial on allegations he sexually abused Virginia Giuffre when she was 17. He denies the accusations.

Andrew was pictured partying at the millionaire’s playground 15 years ago.

But the Evening Standard claim she was dating Prince Albert of Monaco’s right-hand-man Bruno Philipponnat at the time.

Mr Dread said at the time: “Andrew came over to me and asked, ‘What’s her name? She is beautiful. I love the way she carries herself, she is very classy’ – I’d known Chris for years and I was the one who took her to the party.

“The dancefloor was by the swimming pool and there were many beautiful girls flocking to Andrew, but he was completely focused on Chris.

“I felt it was not my business to say she was dating someone else and she danced with Andrew for most of the evening until the party ended at about 3am.

“He followed her everywhere she went, even to the bathroom, and at one point he gave her a head massage.”

But despite getting closer, her friend was quick to insist the socialite went home with her friends that night.

Three years ago, it was reported she got into “real trouble” over the pictures of her with royal that night.

But her long-time friend Richard Gradner said nothing should be read into at the party.

“These photos of her with Prince Andrew do not show Chris’ true character,” he said.

“If she was into partying, she has cleaned up her act greatly since those days and taken a different path.”

But one former regular on the Saint Tropez party scene said the Prince was properly letting his hair down after his freedom was confirmed:

“These were really crazy years for Andrew. He was clearly having a full-blown midlife crisis,” the partygoer is quoted as saying.

“He would have been 47 or 48 at the time, divorced from Sarah Ferguson, and basking in the attention he got from young women.”
