A series of denials have been issued after their intimate photos were published in tabloids claiming they were just friends and saying Escat is married to another guest on the yacht.
But a news magazine editor who is a friend of Escat said the model is very much single and the photos published in the papers show they are more than friends.
Mail Online reports:
The Duke of York, 50, was seen engrossed in a playful conversation with the Filipino model on a luxury yacht last week.
Miss Escat, who says her motto is 'the uneventful life is not worth having', was again pictured with the Duke the following afternoon during lunch on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia.
A source close to the Duke said there was 'categorically no link' between the pair, claiming the brunette was the wife of another guest on the yacht.
Photos showed Prince Andrew kissing the hands of Alexandra while they were yachting in the Mediterranean and later the two were seen boarding a private jet at the Olbia Airport for an unknown destination.
Alexandra Escat is a 25-year old stunning beauty who is a known party personality in Manila and Spain.
She was brought up in Madrid and studied PR there for five years from the age of 18 before moving back to Manila.
Her father is Spanish while her mother is from the Philippines.
Prince Andrew is the son of Queen Elizabeth II and is the Duke of York. He is separated from Sarah Ferguson, the mother of his two daughters.
