PRINCE Andrew is snapped cosying up to a string of women in unearthed party pictures – despite claiming he avoided public displays of affection.
The Duke of York appears to sweat as he hits the dancefloor at the exclusive bashes in Saint-Tropez, France, in 2007 and 2008.
The prince beams as he parties with American socialite Chris Von Aspen, pictured here hanging off of him in July 2008[/caption]

The prince – who bizarrely claimed he “doesn’t sweat” and avoids PDAs in a “car crash” BBC interview- is pictured at a wild party thrown by wine tycoon Claude Ott.
It was just weeks after his disgraced friend Jeffrey Epstein was prosecuted for trafficking an underage girl.
A year earlier, in July 2007, photographs from another bash further trash his claims of avoiding partying and PDAs.
The Duke of York insisted in his “car crash” BBC interview that despite his jet-setting “Randy Andy” reputation he definitely wasn’t some kind of party prince.
However, he is pictured embracing a number of women including socialite Chris Von Aspen in Saint-Tropez – and holds onto her as she tries to lick his face.
Another picture shows a woman kissing his neck.
His denials that he’s a partying prince who likes to cuddle up to women in public are on shaky ground after a catalogue of snaps emerged after his TV interview.
The under-fire royal claimed he was not the kind of the man who would ever be seen cuddling up to women in public.
Referring to his image he said: “I don’t know why I’ve collected that title because I don’t… I never have really partied.”
He spoke out as he tried to distance himself from a picture which showed him with his arm around Virginia Roberts when she was 17 at a party thrown by paedo pal Jeffrey Epstein.
Prince Andrew said that as a member of the British royal family, hugs and public displays of affection are not things he would do.
However, in one revealing photo the prince is seen leaning in to give a bikini-clad beauty a peck on the cheek at a swanky French Riviera beachside bar.
The pictures, taken in 2002, also show the Duke strolling along the sands with another stunning looking woman in a swimsuit.

Other startling images show the Royal chatting to German supermodel Heidi Klum at a ‘Hookers and Pimps’ Halloween party held in New York in 2000.
The A-list bash was also attended by Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell, who had her arm round him for some of the night.
There is absolutely no suggestion the Prince had any kind of physical relationships with any of those pictured.
The Prince also bizarrely stated he was not one to sweat as a result of being shot at during the Falklands War as he dismissed damaging claims he slept with “sex slave” Virginia.
However, in pictures published elsewhere today a clearly “glowing” Andrew can be seen dancing with a blonde socialite in 2007.
She can be seen sticking her tongue out next to Andrew’s cheek in an outrageous image which will shock monarchists.
In another candid photo The Duke of York is seen dancing nose-to-nose with a beautiful brunette.

More photos show the prince being kissed by PR girls at a NSPCC charity party in London in 1990.
Prince Andrew is now facing a huge backlash over his interview, which Prince Charles’ former PR chief Dickie Arbiter described as: “Not so much a car crash but an articulated lorry crash.”
Mr Arbiter said he must “take a break” from royal duties, adding: “What charity wants a VIP guest with this hanging over him?”
Piers Morgan also slammed Prince Andrew’s bombshell Jeffrey Epstein interview as “desperate toe-curling bullsh***”.
The outspoken Good Morning Britain host tweeted his response to the much-anticipated Newsnight episode.
He wrote: “This is one of the most astonishing interviews I’ve ever watched.
