The British Royal House has received some unexpected news regarding the legal situation of the Duke of York and son of Queen Elizabeth II, Andrew of England. The queen’s third son was being singled out by a woman as the alleged perpetrator of sexual abuse, but he has reached an economic agreement with her to avoid a trial.
Andrew of York had ties to tycoon Jeffrey Epstein, a tycoon who was convicted of numerous pedophilia charges, and ended up committing suicide in prison. Virginia Giuffre, the woman who denounced him, claimed that the son of the Queen of England abused her as a child, while he has repeatedly insisted on her innocence.
Now, and when everything seemed to indicate that the defending prince of England was going to be put on trial, he has managed to reach an economic agreement with the complainant to avoid going to trial. However, the exact money that Virginia Giuffre will receive, who seems willing to withdraw the complaint with the development of recent events, has not been released.
Last January, the Duke of York saw how his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, announce that she was withdrawing all the titles he had under his belt, both royal and military, after it was known that he was going to be tried for this alleged case of abuse against the reporting woman, and it is unknown whether they will be returned to him in the future.
Queen Elizabeth II lives very delicate moments of her reign, just the year in which it has been seven decades since her accession to the throne, when her father, George VI, died. Added to the quarrels outside the palace with her grandson Harry and Meghan Markle, the scandal of Prince Andrew made the Royal House increasingly overwhelmed by the situation.
In addition, Queen Elizabeth II gave the surprise a day before her anniversary as monarch, asking that, if her son Charles becomes king, she wishes that Camilla of Cornwall be called ‘queen consort’. This support is not shared by the majority of Britons, who still remember Diana of Wales, whose death will be 25 years on 31 August.
