Former Prime Minister Paul Keating has gone to considerable lengths to avoid commenting on the connection between his daughter Katherine and billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and their relationship to Prince Andrew.

Footage emerged last weekend in The Mail on Sunday of Prince Andrew at Epstein’s New York apartment in 2010 waving goodbye to a young woman who was later identified as Ms Keating.

She has not commented on the video, and the former Prime Minister was also keen to avoid the issue on Wednesday.

An unusually publicity shy Mr Keating, now 75, slipped out a rarely used back door of his heritage-listed office in Sydney’s Potts Point and got into a waiting red four-wheel-drive.

He left his own car parked less than 50 metres away as he left alongside an unknown woman.

He shielded his face with a piece of paper as a companion dismissed Daily Mail Australia, saying Mr Keating did not wish to make any comments regarding the footage.

Keating, famed for his razor wit and effusive rhetoric as a politician, was for once lost for words.

He instead chose to keep his head down and face covered, while the man he was with said the former Prime Minister was too busy for interviews as he was booked up with back-to-back appointments for the next ‘few weeks’.

‘He hasn’t addressed the allegations with anybody else and he isn’t likely to,’ a spokeswoman for the former Labor leader’s office told Daily Mail Australia.

The former PM shed no light on what his daughter was at the apartment belonging to Epstein, who committed suicide earlier this month while awaiting trial on child sex charges. It is not however suggested that anything improper took place.

Katherine Keating, whose had become a fixture on the New York and Los Angeles social circle that includes Princess Eugenie and Meghan Markle’s close friend Mischa Nonoo, was dating playboy hotelier Andre Balazs at the time of the 2010 footage.

Balazs was an associate of Epstein, and his name was found in Epstein’s ‘black book’ that was admitted as evidence in previous legal matters.

Keating was one of two brunette young women seen coming or going; so too was a young blonde girl who left with Epstein himself.

There is no suggestion Keating was aware of or involved in any of Epstein’s criminal activities.

The former prime minister went to considerable lengths on Wednesday to avoid speaking to waiting media.

A male associate, who did not provide his name, asked media to leave Mr Keating alone.

‘I can’t let you speak with him I’m afraid, he won’t be commenting.

‘I’m sorry, I can’t. He’s leaving now.’

The man repeatedly came outside Mr Keating’s office to check for media representatives and scouted the entrance before giving the all clear for the waiting car to take him away.

Another woman, who also exited Mr Keating’s office space, stepped in front of the car in an attempt to block any view of him.

Katherine’s sister Alexandra was also tight-lipped about her sister’s Epstein connection when questioned on Tuesday.

Alexandra left her $2.25 million Hollywood Hills home accompanied by two male companions who carried two suitcases to a waiting black Mini Clubman.

Asked to comment on her sister’s links to the paedophile financier, she shook her head and said: ‘I’m not Katherine.’

But DailyMail.com can disclose that Alexandra has her own link to Epstein’s circle.

She partied with her older sister in 2013 at the home of Maxwell.

Maxwell was the British socialite accused of procuring underage girls for Epstein and showing them how to perform oral sex and how to use their hands to pleasure him.

It is not suggested that Alexandra was aware of or involved in any of Epstein’s criminal activities, or that Alexandra or her sister Katherine were aware of or involved in any of the alleged activities of Maxwell.

The Keating daughters posed proudly with Ariadne Calvo-Platero – who was Maxwell’s best friend at Oxford University and who was a founder of the alleged madame’s now-shuttered charity, the TerraMar foundation.

Federal authorities are investigating its links to Epstein, the New York Post reported.

Alexandra Keating splits her time between Los Angeles and New York, working as an adviser to RSE Ventures, the investment vehicle of Stephen Ross, the billionaire SoulCycle backer whose support for Donald Trump led to a celebrity-led boycott of the trendy exercise chain.

Alexandra and Katherine had become familiar faces on the New York social scene, with Alexandra moving there first from their native Australia and Katherine joining her in 2010.

Katherine was not at the offices of her Los Angeles-based employers, talent agency Maverick, on Tuesday.

Maverick, who represent among others U2 and Madonna, have refused to comment since the revelation on Monday that Katherine Keating went to Epstein’s home in December 2010 and was waved off by Prince Andrew.

The source who disclosed the video to the Mail on Sunday said that the Prince said a few words to her.

‘If I hadn’t known it was Prince Andrew, I would have thought he owned the place. He looked so comfortable and relaxed as he stood there at the door,’ the source said.

‘He didn’t appear to have a concern in the world as he smiled and waved goodbye to the girl.

‘It was only as the girl walked off that he glanced around the door frame, almost as if to check no one was watching.’

Keating is a former political consultant to her father’s Australian Labor Party and moved to New York in 2010 to be with her then-boyfriend, hotelier Andre Balazs, 24 years her senior.

They were no longer together, but she has established herself as a New York socialite, Davos attendee and fashionable environmental campaigner since then, and described herself as a ‘philanthropist.’

She featured on the cover of The Australian’s magazine The Deal in 2017 as ‘Katherine the bold,’ and boasted about choosing ‘philanthropy’ over politics.

She now works as head of ‘sustainability’ for Maverick, a talent agency which represents Sir Paul McCartney and U2, among others.

Previously she presented a series of interviews called One On One which were published by HuffingtonPost.com and which saw her interview Ghislaine Maxwell – a close associate of Epstein.

Epstein, 66, was accused of arranging for girls, some as young as 14, to perform nude ‘massages’ and other sex acts, and of paying some of those girls to recruit others, between 2002 and 2005.

Epstein had employees who helped bring him girls, prosecutors have said, though none have been criminally charged.

Maxwell, 57, described as the ‘madam of the house’ by a former housekeeper at Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, has strenuously denied any wrongdoing.

Katherine Keating was one of a string of romantic partners for Balazs, who ran The Standard hotel in New York and the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.

After they broke up, she later went on to date photographer Francesco Carrozzini, 36, the aristocratic son of the late Italian Vogue editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani.

He was a co-executive producer of her video series and is now married to Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s daughter Bea Shaffer, 32.

Keating is now believed to be single but when the two collaborated, they worked together on the interview with Maxwell.

In the interview, she described Maxwell – the accused procurer of underage girls for Epstein – as ‘a philanthropist’ and discussed her work on The TerraMar Project; an eco-initiative aimed at protecting the ocean, which was hastily shuttered after Epstein was hit with new charges in July.

In the video, Maxwell urged readers to sign a pledge to become ‘ocean citizens’ and railed about the sea becoming ‘the world’s dumping ground’.

Keating currently holds a voluntary role as the vice-chair of the Whitney Museum’s Performance Committee.

In 2017 Keating became the publisher of VICE Impact, a channel of the website Vice.com which is now largely shuttered but which pushed calls for green policies.

 She was given a brief to raise awareness of ‘global social issues’ such as climate change and women’s empowerment, and wrote several articles on those themes.

Speaking in a February 2018 interview with The Last Magazine about her role at Vice, she said her biggest hope was to persuade people to get out and vote and do more to champion social causes.

She said: ‘Having grown up in politics, personally I have always been in love with the political process and being engaged in politics.

‘I never understood why people never made that connection of really valuing their vote.

‘That’s the thing that people should care about. This is not about forcing the things that I care about upon our audience. It’s giving them the capabilities to be more active and engaged citizens.’

However she left after shortly after that interview to join the talent agency Maverick as head of sustainability, where she continues to hold other roles.

She currently sits on the ‘Ambassador Council’ at International Crisis Group, a non-profit founded by financier George Soros that describes itself as an ‘independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization committed to preventing and resolving deadly conflict.’

The group’s CEO from 2000 to 2009 was Gareth Evans, Australia’s former Foreign Minister in the Hawke-Keating governments.

She also sat on the advisory committee of the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 event, which brought a mix of artists, influencers and politicians to South Africa in December 2018 to celebrate Mandela’s legacy and raise awareness of social issues.
