Prince Andrew of Britain who was earlier booked by Virginia Giuffre for a sexual abuse case has now settled the US lawsuit. The lawsuit will now spare him further troubles in this case.

The news: A settlement between Andrew and Giuffre has an undisclosed payment, and was revealed on Tuesday in a filing in a federal court in Manhattan.

  • The whole case of Giuffre revolved around Andrew’s friendship with the late Jeffrey Epstein, a financier and sex offender, who she claimed sexually abused her.
  • According to the filing, Andrew regrets his previous association with Epstein.
  • Lawyers for Giuffre, 38, and Andrew, 61, said in a joint filing that their settlement in principle calls for the prince to make a “substantial donation” to Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights.
Britain’s Prince Andrew has settled a U.S. lawsuit by Virginia Giuffre accusing him of sexually abusing her when she was a teenager, potentially sparing him further embarrassment in a lurid case that helped precipitate his fall from grace

What’s going on: Andrew has denied all the allegations that he forced Giuffre to have sex at the age of 17 at the London home of Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s mansion in Manhattan, and Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands more than two decades ago.

  • The trial in the case was supposed to start later this year, where Andrew would have had to testify under oath.

What are they saying: According to the filing, “Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms. Giuffre’s character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks.”

  • The filling further read, “It is known that Jeffrey Epstein trafficked countless young girls over many years. Prince Andrew regrets his association with Epstein, and commends the bravery of Ms. Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others. He pledges to demonstrate his regret for his association with Epstein by supporting the fight against the evils of sex trafficking, and by supporting its victims.”
