Prince Andrew Interview. Categorically denies sex claims – was at home
15 February 2022 – Prince Andrew has settled a civil sexual assault case brought against him in the US by Virginia Giuffre.
A letter filed to the US district court on Tuesday said the duke and Ms Giuffre had reached an out-of-court settlement.
It said the duke would pay an undisclosed sum to Ms Giuffre.
A statement included with the letter read: “The parties will file a stipulated dismissal upon Ms Giuffre’s receipt of the settlement (the sum of which is not being disclosed).
It said the duke would make a “substantial donation to Ms Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights”.
The Duke of York “categorically” denied having any sexual contact with an American woman, who says she was forced to have sex with him aged 17.
Answering questions about his links to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein in a BBC interview, Prince Andrew said the alleged incidents “never happened”.
Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s accusers, claimed she was forced to have sex with the prince three times.
The prince said he was at home with his children on one of the occasions.
Prince Andrew, who is the Queen’s third child, has been facing questions for several months over his ties to Epstein, a 66-year-old American financier who took his own life while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
The prince spoke to BBC Newsnight’s Emily Maitlis in an interview recorded at Buckingham Palace on Thursday.
It went to air on BBC Two at 21:00 GMT on Saturday 16 November 2019.
Did you see the programme? What did you think? The Prince seemed to be forthcoming about his movements but do you believe him? Was he questioned closely enough? Should other questions have been asked? Should he give evidence?
