Andrew Mountbatten-Windsor has reached a settlement in the sexual abuse lawsuit brought against him by Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
Ms Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies revealed the settlement in a motion filed with US District Judge Lewis Kaplain on Tuesday.
The lawsuit alleged Andrew sexually abused Virginia as a teenager on multiple occasions in London, Manhattan, and the US Virgin Islands in 2001, when she was 17, allegations that he strongly denied. Who would admit to this?
Prince Andrew’s legal team sought to have the case dismissed, arguing that another 2009 settlement between Virginia and Jeffrey Epstein barred him from liability.
However Judge Kaplan denied that bid in January, paving the way for a trial that will no longer happen under the new settlement, the terms of which have not been revealed.
A document submitted to a US court on Tuesday said that Andrew and Virginia had reached an out of court settlement.
It said he would make a “substantial donation to Ms Giuffre’s charity”.
