Virginia Roberts Prince Andrew: The Prince Andrew Virginia Roberts Giuffre saga is moving on to a new phase since Ghislaine Maxwell was declared a convicted child sex criminal.

The adversaries’ legal teams will face off at a pre-trial hearing in New York City on January 4. The royal’s team is attempting to have the civil action dismissed.

Andrew, the second son of English Monarch Queen Elizabeth II, is locked in a vicious battle over claims he assaulted Ms Roberts Giuffre three times when she was aged 17.

The Epstein whistleblower alleges Maxwell and Epstein trafficked her to Prince Andrew in London, New York and the US Virgin Islands.

Prince Andrew would stay at Epstein’s homes whenever he visited the US. He said Epstein’s New York mansion was “convenient place” for him to stay when he had business.

The pre-trial conference will be soon underway in federal court in Manhattan, so here is everything we know about the allegations, the civil lawsuit, and how it could impact the Duke of York, who stepped down from public life amid the fallout from the scandal.

The lawsuit filed in August in Manhattan federal court by Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein’s most prominent alleged victims, claimed she was forced on three occasions to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17 and he was around 40.

Repeating prior claims, the suit alleges that the prince committed sexual assault at Epstein’s New York City mansion when she and “another victim” were forced to “sit on Prince Andrew’s lap as Prince Andrew touched her breast”.

Maxwell was convicted on December 29 of sex trafficking and four other counts, and is potentially facing life in prison.

The lawsuit also includes the well-known picture of Prince Andrew with his arm around Giuffre’s waist in which Maxwell appears in the background.

The royal has previously claimed the photo was doctored, and he has never faced criminal charges.
