British Prince Andrew, accused of sexual harassment, is on the verge of financial ruin because of the trial. This is reported by the Daily Record.
Ruin may threaten a member of the royal family because he can no longer pay expensive expenses from budget money and must do it at his own expense. The bills have already grown to two million pounds, and a potential payment of 10 million pounds to Virginia Giuffre may be added to this.
Andrew himself has already told his inner circle about his deplorable financial situation, sources told the publication. "Now the bills are growing, and the possibility of a settlement вЂ” or, even worse, a court decision against him вЂ” is widely discussed, he fears a complete financial collapse," one of them admitted.
The son of the British Queen Elizabeth II, Andrew, is suspected of sexual abuse against Virginia Roberts Giuffre. She claims that in 2001 when she was 17 years old, the American financier and friend of Duke Jeffrey Epstein forced her to have sex with the prince three times.
Amid the scandal that broke out, Queen Elizabeth II stripped Andrew of his title and military ranks. In addition, he may be kicked out of the 31-bedroom mansion, which is located three miles from Windsor Castle. In January, it became known about another decision of the Queen: Prince Andrew will no longer be called "His Royal Highness". In other words, he is completely removed from official court life.
