Prince Andrew, The Duke of York, is being sued by Virginia Giuffre who claims he “committed sexual assault” on three occasions in London, Manhattan, and the US Virgin Islands when she was a teenager.
Andrew has continually denied any sexual contact, relationship or even meeting with Virginia Giuffre.
“I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever,” he said in a BBC interview with Emily Maitlis.
In her lawsuit, Ms Giuffre said she has suffered “significant emotional and psychological distress” continually for decades after the alleged assaults.
The lawsuit says: “Twenty years ago Prince Andrew’s wealth, power, position, and connections enabled him to abuse a frightened, vulnerable child with no one there to protect her. It is long past the time for him to be held to account.”
The full list of allegations are as follows:
Ms Giuffre alleges she was recruited by former socialite Ghislaine Maxwell into Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking operation when she was working at Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida;
Between 2000 and 2002 she says she was flown all over the world by Epstein and sexually abused by him at “numerous locations”;
She then claims she was trafficked by Epstein to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was aged 17, which made her a minor under US law;
Ms Giuffre is seeking unspecified damages, but the sum could reportedly be in the millions of dollars.
