Princess Eugenie Heads To Balmoral To Be With Her Dad Prince Andrew Amid Lawsuit Scandal
One day after Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson arrived at Queen Elizabeth's Balmoral estate, his youngest daughter, Princess Eugenie, flew in to support her father amid his lawsuit scandal.
In photos obtained by The Sun, the 31-year-old princess was spotted in the back of the car after she flew into Aberdeen Airport on Wednesday, August 11.

Eugenie's husband, Jack Brooksbank, and their son, August, also came along.
Earlier this week, Virginia Roberts filed a lawsuit against Prince Andrew, alleging that he raped her.
"Today my attorney filed suit against Prince Andrew for sexual abuse under the Child Victims Act. As the suit lays out in detail, I was trafficked to him and sexually abused by him," she said in a statement to PEOPLE on Monday, August 9. "I am holding Prince Andrew accountable for what he did to me. The powerful and rich are not exempt from being held responsible for their actions. I hope that other victims will see that it is possible not to live in silence and fear, but to reclaim one's life by speaking out and demanding justice."
She concluded, "I did not come to this decision lightly. As a mother and a wife, my family comes first — and I know that this action will subject me to further attacks by Prince Andrew and his surrogates — but I knew if I did not pursue this action, I would be letting them and victims everywhere down."
In the lawsuit, which was obtained by The Royal Observer, Roberts claims that the royal "sexually abused Plaintiff in Epstein’s New York mansion in this District."
Andrew has maintained his innocence this whole time, and Ferguson also praised her ex before the lawsuit was filed.
"Whatever challenges he has, I will stand firm to the co-parenters we are together. I believe he's a kind, good man, and he's been a fabulous father to [Princess Beatrice and Eugenie]," she said.
It's unclear what will happen next, but royal expert Robert Jobson believes nothing good will come of this.
"In terms of Prince Andrew's royal career, it is pretty much over," he claimed. "There is hope that if this case had not been lodged he was hoping that he could somehow come back."
