“While accusations are levelled against Prince Andrew, it’s important to note that he is not party to the proceedings.
Instead he is named as part of evidence relating to a wider case of an alleged sex trafficking scheme, involving US businessman Jeffry Epstein, who has already been jailed for having sex with underage girls.
A woman named him in documents she filed in a Florida court over how prosecutors handled a case against financier Jeffrey Epstein.
She claims that between 1999 and 2002 she was forced by Epstein to have sex with the prince when she was a minor.
The palace said it would not comment in detail on the legal proceedings.”
