Today, the prince would be determined to push Virginia Giuffre to retract, according to a source who confided in the British media The Mail on Sunday.
“I can tell you with confidence that Prince Andrew’s team is considering legal options”, confirms the source. The goal? Cancel the multi-million pound settlement he owes the accuser. The inspiration came to her when Virginia Giuffre recently dropped her case against a lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, whom she had accused of sexual assault, admitting she “may have made a mistake” in her identification.
The purpose of this maneuver would then be to demand an apology from the young woman. However, the source adds that Prince Andrew “never wanted to make a deal and always insisted he was innocent.”
“Prince Andrew was under pressure, he had no option but to strike a deal. It’s not about the money. He wants a path back to some sort of normality after a deeply difficult time.”
