Royal Family LIVE: Final nail in coffin for Fab Four as Meghan misses key event with Kate

NewsRoyal Family LIVE: Final nail in coffin for Fab Four as Meghan misses key event with Kate


Prince Andrew’s strategy to try and attack and blame Virginia Giuffre has been described as “incredibly risky” by a US legal expert. 

Moira Penza, a former Assistant US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York said that the Prince is keeping his options open to how he will respond to allegations. 

She said: “What we have seen in other cases, is that that is an incredibly risky strategy for someone in Prince Andrew’s position to employ.”

On the photograph which appears to show Prince Andrew with his arm around the 17-year-old Virginia, Ms Penza said: “What I think is happening there is you’re never going to admit in this sort of filing, ‘Yes, what Virginia Giuffre is saying about that photograph is true’. That just would never happen at this stage in the proceeding.

“But what he’s doing is he’s keeping options open, depending on how the facts play out in discovery over the course of a trial where perhaps he can make arguments as to why he’s in that photograph, when that photograph might have been taken, what the circumstances were around that photograph, rather than it being specifically tied to sexual assault of Virginia Giuffre.”
