This is news that should not reassure Prince Andrew! Virginia Giuffre, the American who claims to have been forced by Jeffrey Epstein and his friend, Ghislaine Maxwell to have sex with the prince three times in 2001, when she was only 17, intends to tell her story in a book. Will she expose Prince Andrew in more detail? That remains to be seen… In February 2022, following the complaint filed by Virginia Giuffre a few months earlier against Prince Andrew, the latter had reached an amicable agreement with his complainant: in return for a financial payment ” substantial” whose amount has not been disclosed, Virginia Giuffre would have been asked not to make any public statement “for a while”, indicates the Sun. But as Le Monde recalls, it does not appear that the complainant signed a confidentiality clause prohibiting her from telling her version of the facts. It remains to be seen, therefore, if Virginia Giuffre will be content to speak of the traffic organized by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell or if she will discuss in more detail the abuses of which she was the victim by Prince Andrew.
Prince Andrew, soon to be affected by budget cuts?
If King Charles III, who has decided to overhaul the allocation of royal funds, chooses to reduce his financial support for his brother, the latter may well be forced to sell his mansion. Indeed, he could end up not being able to pay the maintenance costs of this residence estimated at 30 million pounds which he shares with his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson. If kicked out, Prince Andrew could move into her Westminster home, according to a source quoted by the Daily Mail.
