Queen Caught Pumping Millions into Prince Andrew's Child Sex Abuse Legal Fight
Taxpayer-funded British head of state helps son fight child sex trafficking allegations
Queen Elizabeth II has been secretly pumping millions of pounds into the fund for her son Prince Andrew to fight allegations he raped a child who was trafficked to him by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, a bombshell new report has revealed.
Andrew, the Duke of York, is being sued in New York by Epstein's former child sex slave Virginia Robert Giuffre, now 38.
Giuffre accuses the British prince of raping her on three separate occasions when she was 17 — in London, New York, and on billionaire child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein's Caribbean island, aka "Pedophile Island."
Andrew, 61, has unconvincingly denied the allegations while refusing to speak with authorities about the charges.
This week, Andrew finally confirmed he has officially been served court papers relating to the lawsuit in the United States.
The Queen's decision would have come shortly after the Duke's disastrous Newsnight interview, in which he denied raping Ms. Giuffre, claiming he wasn't in London that day.
Roberts claims the first occasion she was raped was at Epstein's alleged accomplice Maxwell Ghislaine's Belgravia home on the night of March 10, 2001, after meeting at London's Tramp nightclub.
She says she was raped by the Duke for the first time on this night, shortly after the now-infamous photo of herself with Andrew's arm around her waist was taken.
The prince has denied he was ever in London in the late hours of March 10, 2001, however.
According to Andrew, he couldn't have raped Roberts in London on that night because he was at a Pizza Express restaurant in Woking with his young daughter that evening - It's roughly one hour's drive away.
Last week Andrew added Melissa Lerner to his legal team, the latest Lavley Singer lawyer to come on board after Andrew Brettler.
The Los Angeles law firm is known for representing celebrities and powerful elites.
Brettler is reportedly charging $2,000 (£1,500) an hour as Andrew's lead counsel.
The funds will be sourced from her annual income from the Duchy of Lancaster estate, The Telegraph reports.
This recently increased by £1.5million to £23million.
The case could take months or years to resolve, and any settlement could well stretch into the millions of pounds.
Ms Giuffre has accused the Duke of sexually assaulting her on three separate occasions when she was 17.
He vehemently denies the allegations.
She claims she was trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with Andrew when she was aged 17 and a minor under US law.
One such alleged occasion was at the London home of Epstein's longtime associate Ghislaine Maxwell.
She also said Andrew abused her at around the same time at Epstein's mansion in Manhattan and on Epstein's private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Epstein was found dead in his cell at a Manhattan federal jail in August 2019 while he awaited a sex trafficking trial.
The death was ruled to be suicide.
It is not clear if the Queen's financial intervention was necessary or an act of kindness.
However, Prince Andrew's personal finances remain something of a mystery as he has no discernible income.
He is said to be selling a Swiss ski chalet he unexplainably bought for £17million with his ex-wife the Duchess of York to settle debts with the previous owner.
He leases his home, Royal Lodge on the Queen's Windsor estate, which is owned by the Crown Estate.
