ANDREW SAID TO BE HAVING ON GOING CRISIS TALKS WITH LAWYERS BY PHONE

Prince Andrew is said to be currently having ongoing crisis talks with lawyers by phone after joining the Queen at Balmoral supported by daughter Eugenie.

David Boies told The Telegraph: “We present him with a copy of the complaint in a formal way. Because he is a foreign citizen, we have to do this under the Hague Convention.”

Virginia Roberts Giuffre, 38, is suing Prince Andrew over allegations that he abused her at the disgraced financier’s Manhattan home, on his private Caribbean island, and at Ghislaine Maxwell’s home in London.

Her lawsuit comes over two years after Epstein, 66, was found dead in a New York jail awaiting trial for conspiracy and child sex trafficking charges. The Duke of York has always denied any allegations that he had sexual contact with Ms Giuffre or that he had any knowledge of Epstein’s wrongdoing.

Andrew is named as the only defendant in the 15-page suit, brought under New York state’s Child Victims Act, though Epstein and his former girlfriend Maxwell are mentioned frequently throughout.
