Virginia Giuffre ‘to be banned from speaking publicly about Andrew’s sexual claims until anniversary’

Virginia Giuffre “will be barred from speaking publicly about Prince Andrew’s sexual pretensions until the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, in accordance with the terms of a settlement with the Duke.”

  • The prince agreed to pay a huge sum to settle the matter before it went to trial by jury.
  • Under the terms, Miss Giuffre cannot publicly tell her story until after the anniversary.
  • At that point, she would probably publish a book about her claims, the lawyer suggested.

Virginia Giuffre will be barred from speaking publicly of her grievances against Prince Andrew until after the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration, under the terms of her agreement with the Duke of York.

Ms Giuffre, now known by her husband’s last name Roberts, claimed she was forced to have sex with Andrew three times when she was 17, at the behest of the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Just last month, she was given the green light to sue the 61-year-old royal for unspecified damages in New York civil court.

But despite promising to fight the charges and repeatedly protesting his innocence, the prince agreed yesterday to pay a hefty sum to settle the case before it goes to trial by jury.

Additional details of the deal have now surfaced, including claims that Miss Giuffre will continue to publicly tell her story, but only later this year so as not to cause further damage to the royal family during death anniversary celebrations. 70 years on the throne of the monarch, reports the Times.

Sources told the paper there would be a “period of silence” when both sides would have to adhere to the terms of the carefully worded statement.

However, after Miss Giuffre’s jubilee celebrations, it is expected that a book telling her story will be allowed to be published at the end of the year.

“Usually you would have complete non-disclosure [agreement] on both sides,” lawyer Mitchell Epner told the Times.

He added: “Because this is a settlement in the context of what appears to be an apology from Prince Andrew.” [he believes Miss Giuffre] ‘agreed to say nothing [but] she will be able to write a book, perhaps by this Christmas season.”

Royal writer Penny Junor said earlier that the agreement reached is likely to be a “huge relief” for the rest of the royal family, but the damage done to Andrew is irreparable.

She said: “Going to court could be very, very unpleasant. It could be embarrassing, humiliating, and it would be huge tabloid fodder. A platinum jubilee year for the Queen could really dampen the shine.”

Amber Melville-Brown, partner in the New York office of London-based law firm Withers, added that it would be “worth its weight in gold for the Queen as she celebrates her platinum jubilee.”
