As he fights a sexual assault lawsuit in the US, Prince Andrew has one less legal matter to worry about. The Metropolitan Police yesterday said they stood by their decision to not investigate the sexual assault allegations levelled at the Duke of York and late billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein by accuser Virginia Giuffre. Andrew denies the 38yo’s claims that he assaulted her in London, New York and on Epstein’s private island in the Caribbean. Giuffre’s public accusations and new documents prompted the Met to review its previous decision. That review is over, and the Met says it will take “no further action” but will continue to liaise with other law enforcement agencies who are investigating allegations linked to Epstein. Meanwhile, rumours are swirling about discord in the royal family over Andrew’s situation. Prince William is said to want his uncle to step away from royal duties for good.
