LONDON (AP) — Britain's Prince Andrew has publicly denied allegations he had sex with an underage teenager.

He made the denial during a visit to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Thursday. It was his first public appearance since the charges.

U.S. lawyers representing a woman who claims she was forced to have underage sex with Prince Andrew have filed papers requesting that he respond to her claims under oath.

Buckingham Palace officials have strongly denied that Andrew had any sexual involvement with the woman, who is identified only as Jane Doe No. 3 in court papers.

The woman says in court papers the denials are false.
