Prince Andrew Reported to Police Over Unsealed Court Documents Detailing Allegations of Sexual Assault

Police Report and Allegations

Anti-monarchy group Republic has reported Prince Andrew to the Metropolitan Police after unsealed court documents highlighted allegations of sexual assault against him.

The Duke of York, consistently denying any wrongdoing, faces renewed scrutiny following multiple references to him in files related to Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier.

Impact on Royal Rehabilitation

The emergence of these allegations might thwart Prince Andrew’s attempts at re-entering the royal fold. Despite his recent public appearances with the royal family, including a significant one at his brother’s coronation, the court claims have significantly solidified King Charles’s resolve to resolve the ‘Andrew problem’ conclusively.

Plans are underway to relocate him from Royal Lodge to a smaller residence in alignment with his diminished status within the monarchy.

Court Documents and Previous Allegations

Newly unsealed court documents include references to Andrew in nearly 1,000 pages, strengthening assertions made against him in a 2015 defamation case involving Ghislaine Maxwell and Virginia Giuffre.

Giuffre accused Andrew of sexual assault when she was 17, leading to an out-of-court settlement without admission of guilt.

Calls for Investigation

Republic’s chief executive Graham Smith urges the Metropolitan Police to reopen the case and MPs to debate the affair in Parliament.

He emphasizes the lack of a serious criminal investigation and calls for a public statement from King Charles regarding these allegations and their implications for the monarchy.

International Perspective and Legal Demands

US attorney Spencer Kuvin, representing Epstein’s victims, presses for a thorough investigation into Andrew’s conduct, citing his failure to fully engage with US investigators about his association with Epstein.

He stresses the severity of Epstein’s actions and insists on a diligent probe into people associated with the financier.

Court Testimonies and Claims

Testimonies from Johanna Sjoberg allege that Andrew touched her breast while posing for a photo with a Spitting Image puppet of himself in Epstein’s Manhattan apartment. Other mentions in court documents describe previous claims of sexual relations with a minor and Maxwell’s role in facilitating Andrew’s alleged acts of abuse.

Giuffre’s Testimony and Missing Photograph

Giuffre claims she was trafficked to have sex with Andrew on multiple occasions, including at Maxwell’s London home, Epstein’s New York residence, and during an orgy on a Caribbean island.

She discusses the famous photograph in question, stating it might be stored in boxes at her family’s home in Sydney, Australia, having given a copy to the FBI in 2011.

Maxwell’s Communication and Statements

Correspondence from Maxwell expressed her apprehension about her relationship with Andrew and concerns regarding potential inquiries into their association.

Her videotaped deposition mentioned Andrew visiting Epstein’s private island once, a statement that contrasts with allegations in the unsealed documents.

The Metropolitan Police and representatives of Prince Andrew have not yet responded to requests for comments regarding these recent developments.
