Prince Andrew has finally been spotted for the first time — almost one month after he settled his sex abuse case with Virginia Roberts.
On February 15, it was announced that Andrew, who was accused of raping Roberts when she was 17 years old, and Roberts had come to a conclusion.
"Virginia Giuffre and Prince Andrew have reached an out of court settlement," the papers read. "The parties will file a stipulated dismissal upon Ms. Giuffre's receipt of the settlement (the sum of which is not being disclosed). Prince Andrew intends to make a substantial donation to Ms. Giuffre's charity in support of victims' rights. Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms. Giuffre's character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks."
The message continued, "It is known that Jeffrey Epstein trafficked countless young girls over many years. Prince Andrew regrets his association with Epstein, and commends the bravery of Ms. Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others. He pledges to demonstrate his regret for his association with Epstein by supporting the fight against the evils of sex trafficking, and by supporting its victims."
As The Royal Observer previously reported, Queen Elizabeth was helping pay her son's bills, but now it looks like Prince Charles is also stepping up.
"Once it (money from the chalet) hits his bank account, he can pay back his brother and whoever else has lent him money," the source revealed, referring to his Swiss home, which he sold a few months ago. "But that payment (to Virginia) has to be paid on time. He can’t rely on selling the chalet. Too many things can go wrong and the court won’t wait for property queries."
"He has no income or money to repay a bank loan so the family is the only way to guarantee the payment," a friend added.
