There was some haggling over the paperwork in the lawsuit last week. Giuffre’s legal team claimed Andrew was officially notified of the case by post – a necessary step in the proceedings. However, the prince’s lawyers denied that. A judge then indicated that the papers could be sent to Andrew’s counsel in Los Angeles. On Monday, Giuffre’s lawyers submitted the receipt.
Giuffre, now 38, has accused the Duke of York of sexual abuse. That would have happened when she was 17. Andrew was around 40 at the time. At the same time, Giuffre said he also became a victim of businessman Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide in 2019 after dozens of allegations of abuse of underage girls.
Prince Andrew denies Giuffre’s allegations.
