American Virginia Giuffre, now 39, accuses the prince of sexually assaulting her three times in 2001, when she was 17.

Andrew, friend of Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein, sealed an amicable agreement with her in February 2022, paying millions of dollars, which allowed him to avoid a civil lawsuit in New York, which would have been extremely embarrassing for the British royal family.
