After reaching an out of court settlement, Prince Andrew cancelled the amount due to end the scandal that cost him his position as a leading member of the British monarchy and almost landed him in prison.
This week it became known that the son of Queen Elizabeth II canceled the approximately 14 million euros that were agreed between the two parties to prevent the case from ending in a trial that had been scheduled for the end of the year.
With the payment of the out-of-court settlement, Prince Andrew can breathe easy as he was spared the trial that would bring a member of the monarchy to the dock for the first time in the United States.
The order of Judge Lewis Kaplan of the New York court, stipulates that the case has been formally dismissed.
The case began with Giuffre’s complaint, who accused the Duke of York of having sex when she was a minor. The woman was part of the trafficking of young girls that the businessman Jeffrey Epstein had and for which she ended up in jail where she committed suicide.
After paying, many of his detractors began to wonder where Prince Andrew got the money to cancel the agreement and according to The Sun, his mother, Queen Elizabeth II helped him with a part and his brother, Prince Charles “collaborated” with a loan of 7 million pounds.
