Prince Andrew walks away from the turmoil of justice. While Elizabeth II is enjoying her summer vacation at Balmoral, she has recently been joined by several members of her family, such as Prince Edward and Sophie of Wessex, or even soon Kate Middleton and Prince William with their three children. Because it is well surrounded that the queen will stay in her summer residence, and this for the first time since the death of Prince Philip. To this small list are added the names of Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, reports the Daily Mail, while the Duke of York faces a complaint of sexual abuse.
Indeed, Monday, August 9, Virginia Giuffre filed a complaint in New York against Prince Andrew, whom she accuses of having abused her from the age of 16, and this between 1999 and 2002, while she was working for Jeffrey Epstein as a “masseuse”. The young woman then underage, had been recruited by Ghislaine Maxwell in Mar-a-Lago, to become the “traveling masseuse” of the billionaire, who died in prison in 2019, accused of sexual assault and of having organized trafficking in young women , “offered” to the rich friends of the billionaire. If in this case Prince Andrew has always claimed his innocence, it is justice that will now have to decide.
Prince Andrew soon in court?
While he has not yet reacted to this complaint, Prince Andrew has preferred to take the tangent to Scotland with his family, he who has always assured Elizabeth II to be innocent in the face of the accusations of Virginia Giuffre. Ousted from royal life in November 2019, the Duke of York is obviously not persona non grata at Balmoral. However, to avoid the crowds and the photographers, this time he skipped the private jet to Aberdeen, preferring to remain discreet. However, Prince Andrew will have to put his time in Scotland for the benefit of reflection, since Elizabeth II’s son only has 21 days to respond to Virginia Giuffre’s complaint. After which, the 38-year-old mother could ask the court to rule in her favor without the need for a trial, which would be disastrous for the Duke of York’s reputation. And the royal family.
