Prince Andrew will face sex abuse trial

Prince Andrew is to face civil court action in the US over claims he had sex with Virginia Giuffre when she was a teenager.

Judge Lewis A Kaplan dismissed an application from the Duke’s lawyers to have the case dismissed, which is likely to result in a high-profile case in September over Ms Giuffre’s sensational allegations against prince Andrew.

She alleges she was trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with Andrew when she was 17, which made her a minor under US law.
