Did these photos of Prince Andrew cause his royal dismissal?
Prince Andrew has been trying to dodge sexual assault allegations ever since 2011. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a victim of Jeffrey Epsteins’s sex trafficking crimes, has continuously tried to expose Prince Andrew for sexually abusing her when she was a minor. The alleged victim has also uncovered incriminating photos of her and the prince.
Although the Duke of York has been avoiding and rejecting all allegations, a judge has now confirmed that the prince will have to face the sexual assault case.
Now, it’s been verified that Prince Andrew has given up his military titles. Buckingham Palace just revealed that the prince will no longer undertake any public duties and will defend his case as a private citizen. Will the Duke of York finally be taken to court for the assault allegations against him?
Photos of Prince Andrew & Giuffre exposed
Giuffre, now 38, claims she was coerced by the Duke of York’s friend Ghislaine Maxwell and lured into Epstein’s international sex trafficking crimes. She asserts she was forced to have sex with Andrew on three separate occasions – in London, New York, and on Epstein’s island Little St James.
Although Prince Andrew has firmly denied ever meeting Giuffre, photos were released to prove otherwise. In the photos, Prince Andrew has his arm around a young Giuffre’s waist. Meanwhile, the infamous minor-recruiter Ghislaine Maxwell is seen looming in the background of the photos.
Giuffre’s legal team argues that she was a “frightened, vulnerable child with no one there to protect her” when she was allegedly abused by Andrew, noting that “no person, whether President or Prince, is above the law”.
Prince Andrew must head to court
The recent groundbreaking ruling means the case can now proceed towards a trial before a jury in New York this year. Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies is set to fiercely question the prince in front of jurors under oath. It’s even possible that the prosecutors will question Andrew’s former wife, Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and their daughter Princess Beatrice.
This intense ruling is the latest setback for Prince Andrew, who has continuously tried to distance himself from Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein after their crimes were unveiled.
The 46-page ruling by federal Judge Lewis Kaplan places the New York trial for some time between September & November. Although Kaplan can’t force Andrew to attend the trial in person in the U.S., he would be expected to provide statements and potentially be questioned by videolink.
The Duke of York gives up his military titles
As of January 13th, Prince Andrew has renounced his military titles & royal charities. This breaking news from Buckingham Palace follows only a day after the federal judge ruled to move the sexual abuse case forward.
Buckingham Palace has announced that Prince Andrew “will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.” Although the prince has already been hiding from the public and avoiding all royal events due to the scandal, he continued to hold a series of honorary military titles. This fact had caused outrage from former members of those military units due to his sexual assault case.
The royal palace also noted that the Duke of York will “no longer use the style ‘His Royal Highness’ in any official capacity.” This rule was also required for Prince Harry when he withdrew from royal duties to move to the United States with his wife, Meghan Markle, in 2020.

This is outrageous, that woman was not a little girl at all. She was selling herself to many high ups who she’s not mentioning. She could leave the places and go home at any time. This trial by media was bought on the last but one day before it was out of time. She is a conniving money grabbing bitch. Ruining lives for money. She was never forced to do anything.January 14, 2022
Do Edwardian actors get paid well now adays in America or around worldJanuary 14, 2022
Prince Andrew should go to Prison for he is no better than Jeffrey Epstein!!!!January 14, 2022
Innocent until proven guilty.Wether he’s a sex fiend or found not guilty this will be a trial by media.January 14, 2022
Meghan was treated appallingly in the media esp in UK there’s still daily attacks on her and Harry why ? Because she’s not white British . Yet prince Andrew and his awful grasping geedy spendthrift wife are still pictured and lauded . I read Fergie was the person who got Andrew to visit Epstein because she was there on his Caribbean island with their small daughters . That story was then abandoned and it was that Ghislaine introduced him but Fergie was already there because that’s how she lives off the backs of others she’s truly the worst . She uses her duchess title to mix with the rich live off their favour . Meghan on the other hand is a genuinely very caring person with a career she made for herself . It says all we need to know about the racism and prejudice there is in the UKJanuary 14, 2022
Andrew should be made attend in person to answer questions about his appalling behaviour within the realms of the Jeffery Eps-tine and Ms Maxwells circle of deprivation and abuse of young women. He should be made to face this young woman and young women.January 14, 2022
I’ll start by saying that I don’t like Andrew, and never have but, allegedly Virginia Roberts texted her friend boasting about having sex with the prince, she also spent four years procuring girls, as young as 13, for sex with Epstein….what gives her the right to point a finger. Even without a direct payout, she’ll earn millions from all this!!January 14, 2022
If you take a look at other members of the Royal family something smells. For example look at Prince Charles, he actually let a convicted paedophile priest live in a property on his estate free of charge. So there is something really a miss there. Look at this with a bit of common sense, and the conclusion isn’t hard to arrive at, the magoraty of the male Royals are all tared with the same brush, I really feal for the Queen, especially this year.January 14, 2022
How Prince Andrew thought he could use the waiver of Jeffrey Epsteine’s prior agreement with Ms Guiffre I don’t know. He ‘wasn’t there’ and ‘never met her’, so how can it possibly be used to protect him!
These people because they’re privileged and money is no object, think they can use others of a lower social standing and do whatever they want to them.
Theres a sense of entitlement- similarly with footballers on high wages, they think that having money excuses their behaviour. To a certain point money can go a long way to placate people who call them out on how they’ve been treated by them but it doesn’t work every time.January 14, 2022
Something that appears to have been missed out, what could get Andrew out of trouble: Andrew should claim DIPLOMATIC IMMUNITY! First: As Trade Envoy of Her Majesty’s government at the time of the alleged crimes, he was entitled to full diplomatic privileges including immunity from prosecution just as British diplomats abroad. The wife of the US diplomat literally got away with murder when she killed that young man, a far worse crime. Secondly anyone who represents the Queen is a protected person with diplomatic privileges. Until he stepped down from royal duties, Andrew represented the Queen in various roles, in the military and civilian role. He can now invoke the privilege of being the envoy of the Queen by asking for the case against him to be thrown out.January 14, 2022
I doubt very much if Prince Andrew was the only person that this person that this girl was involved with, but he’s probably the best one to bring her fame and fortune. She will not care that she’s causing stress to the queen of England. It’s all about money now.January 14, 2022
