Queen’s Son Named In Sexual Abuse Claims

Sky News:– Prince Andrew has been accused of touching the breast of a young woman at the home of a wealthy financier facing trial in the US, according to newly released legal documents.

The allegation surfaced in a cache of legal papers unsealed by a US judge in a defamation case involving a British socialite alleged to have supplied Jeffrey Epstein with underage girls.

Ghislaine Maxwell, the youngest child of publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, had moved to the US after her father’s death and became a close associate of Epstein.

In 2015, Ms Maxwell was sued by Virginia Giuffre, an alleged victim of Epstein who also alleged she was forced into a sexual encounter with Andrew when she was 17.

Ms Giuffre claimed Ms Maxwell called her a liar.

In 2008, Epstein pleaded guilty to procuring for prostitution girls aged under 18 and was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
