Prince Andrew, who is one of King Charles III’s younger brothers, has strongly denied Giuffre’s claim that he was introduced to her at London’s Tramp nightclub in 2001 with Maxwell, before Giuffre, then 17. years, was allegedly forced to perform sexual acts with her. British royalty.
giuffre presented a civil suit in a US court in 2021 against Andrew, aka the Duke of York, alleging sexual abuse as a minor on multiple occasions. Andrew later settled out of court for an undisclosed amount without admitting to any wrongdoing and the case was dismissed.
