Britain’s royal family is once again in discussion. Prince Andrew, the second son of Queen Elizabeth, has been accused of sexual harassment in America. A woman had filed a case in a New York Court saying that Prince Andrew sexually assaulted her when she was a minor.
After this severe allegation, Prince has also started preparing to fight the case against him. Attorney Andrew Brettler will fight his case on behalf of Prince Andrew in the lawsuit filed in a New York court. However, on behalf of the accused woman, her legal team has not yet sent the case papers.
The woman narrated her ordeal.
The woman who accuses her is Virginia Roberts Giuffre. She had claimed that it was sent to the Prince on behalf of American financier Geoffrey Epstein when she was a minor. Geoffrey committed suicide in a New York prison in 2019 while he was awaiting trial for sexual assault and sex trafficking charges against him.
Jeffrey said that Prince Andrew had physically abused her 20 years ago at the home of London socialite Gislaine Maxwell. At that time, Jeffrey was under 18 years old. Jeffrey has claimed that Andrew sexually abused her at Epstein’s New York home and Little St. James’s. Little St. James Epstein’s private island was located on the Virgin Islands.
Prince Andrew denies allegations of being baseless.
Andrew, 61, has denied all these allegations. He says that he never had a relationship with Jeffrey, nor does he remember any meeting. Jufre has filed a case against Andrew under the Child Victims Act. He says that when these crimes took place, he was 17 years old. According to the woman’s agent, it has been told in the affidavit filed last month that on August 27, the documents of the case have been handed over to the police officer at the main gate in Windsor, England. However, the agent has not had any personal meeting with Andrew.
