Talk about family drama. There’s a new report that says Prince William, along with his grandmother Queen Elizabeth, are both increasingly concerned about Prince Andrew and his sexual assault lawsuit. Virginia Giuffre has filed a lawsuit against the Duke of York, as she claims that he made her perform sexual acts while she was still a minor and an alleged sex trafficking victim. Here’s what you need to know.
According to the Daily Mirror, Prince Andrew has reportedly spoken to senior members of the royal family about the ordeal, as he is well aware that Giuffre is accusing him of “rape of the first degree” and that this lawsuit might take years to resolve.
Prince William Is Increasingly Concerned About Prince Andrew’s Sexual Assault Lawsuit
Sources say that Prince William, along with his father Prince Charles, have become “exasperated” with the long running saga.
A royal source close to the situation put it this way: “First and foremost, Charles and William are united; there will never be a return to public life for Andrew. This has only been compounded with the lawsuit lodged this week. But they, along with members, are undoubtedly increasingly concerned about the affect all of this turmoil could have on the Queen. She has been through a great deal over many, many recent months and this is once again a most unwelcome distraction.”
“The family also have serious and growing doubts about the way such serious allegations have been dealt with by Andrew and his legal team, who seem to be at complete odds with one another on how to respond. Andrew has told them the latest developments could take years to resolve which has done nothing to settle the feeling of alarm.”
