Andrew ‘completes’ the royal job and is likely to lose honor military says expert
CAUSE Andrew has “ended up” as a working royal and will likely lose all military titles in his court battle with Virginia Roberts Giuffre, an expert said .
The Duke of York will be tried on charges he sexually assaulted Miss Giuffre when she was 17. A US judge today ruled her civil case can proceed.
Judge Lewis A Kaplan’s decision comes as a blow to Andrew, who lawyers argued earlier this month should drop the case. The Duke’s lawyers have said Virginia’s civil suit should be dropped based on a previous $500,000 (£371,000) settlement she signed with Jeffrey Epstein in 2009.
However, David Boies, Ms Giuffre’s attorney, said only the parties to the settlement – Epstein and Ms Giuffre and their associates – could benefit from it, not “third parties”. like Andrew.
Today, Judge Lewis A Kaplan agreed and said that Prince Andrew’s petition “was rejected in every respect”. And according to experts, the result is “very bad news” for the prince, who will likely lose military honor as a result.
“It’s been suggested he’ll try to come back this year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Falklands but it’s not going to happen to him the way it is now. I wouldn’t be surprised if the timing is right, he’s gone. its military patronage.”
