Prince Andrew of the United Kingdom was summoned Friday by Virginia Guffre, the woman who accused him of sexually abusing her when she was only seventeen years old. The essential paperwork, according to Giuffre’s lawyers, were seized two weeks ago by brokers guarding the Prince’s home residence in Windsor.
Giuffre believes that the abuse took place at the request of Jeffrey Epstein, a now-deceased tycoon. It’s said to have happened on his New York property. At the time, Prince Andrew and Epstein were friends. The charges of abuse against the 61-year-old prince are untrue.
According to Giuffre’s counsel, the subpoena paperwork was delivered to Prince Andrew in Windsor on August 27. The papers were allegedly attempted to be handed over by a member of the firm of solicitors the day before, but Andrew’s security refused to accept them. Despite this, the papers were delivered a day later.
The very first session
Prince Andrew, Queen Elizabeth’s second son, has until September 17 to respond to Giuffre’s costs. The first hearing in the complaint she filed is set for next Monday in a New York courtroom.
Andrew isn’t facing any criminal charges in the United States. Giuffre, who went to court himself, is suing the prince for compensation.
The prince claimed to have forgotten the meeting with Giuffre:
