Angry about Andrew’s legal expenditures, William and Charles are “totally enraged.”

Angry about Andrew’s legal expenditures, William and Charles are “totally enraged.”

The Queen may be requested to help fund any settlement between Andrew and his rape victim, Virginia Giuffre.

She accused the Duke of York of sexually molesting her when she was 17.

The now 38-year-old claims she was forced to have sex with Andrew three times in 2001 by wealthy paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
He accuses Ms Giuffre of pursuing ‘another payday at his expense' in a decade-long quest to benefit from her claims against the disgraced banker and his colleagues.

He has tried to have the case dismissed and is now waiting to see if a New York judge will let her civil lawsuit go to trial.

Despite Andrew's desire to "clean his name," his lawyers are claimed to be keeping the possibility of a settlement "on the table."
The Queen may be requested to contribute to Andrew's payoff to Ms Giuffre, The Telegraph claims.

After his car crash Newsnight interview last February, in which he displayed no contrition about his association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, the duke hired a lawyer, according to the newspaper.

Her own Duchy of Lancaster estate reportedly increased in value by £1.5 million to over £23 million.

A source informed the Daily Mirror that Andrew is ‘meeting all costs alone' and that he ‘needs money urgently to cover debts that are piling up'.

The same source indicated the Queen would not bailout her son if a deal was reached.
‘If there was potential to settle, then that is an option, but the Queen would not aid him in doing so.'

It is unclear whether the monarch is involved.

In response to the Queen's request for financial assistance, Prince William and Charles are alleged to be enraged.

‘They both think Andrew can work out his own mess,' a source added.

The duke is apparently looking to sell his £17million Swiss chalet purchased in 2014 with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.

Even if he raises the finances, Andrew confronts another challenge.

A financial settlement is doubtful for Ms Giuffre, who wants to convey a message that anyone accused of preying on young children will face the full power of the law.
An attempt to have the case dismissed is thought to be on Andrew's mind.

His lawyers say Ms Giuffre can't sue since she isn't US resident.

The ‘domicile ­argument' against Ms Giuffre's residency in Australia has already been dismissed by a judge.

Although Andrew's legal team ‘are not taking this lying down', they think they ‘have a genuine argument' to have the case dismissed.

If the ruling goes against Andrew, he may face a jury trial as early as September. Previously, opposing lawyers would interrogate the duke and Ms Giuffre under oath.
Any trial would risk overshadowing the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June, further damaging the Royal Family's reputation.

Today, a former classmate of Ms Giuffre's recalled her telling her about a night she supposedly had sex with the duke.

Carolyn Andriano, who testified at Ghislaine Maxwell's sex trafficking trial, gave a shocking interview to the Daily Mail.

She claims Ms Giuffre told her she had dinner and intercourse with Andrew in 2001.

‘I asked her if she'd been to the palace,' she recalled.

‘And she said, ‘I slept with him.' “What? You're f with me”, she replied.
