The U.K. Decides Not to Take Action on the Prince Andrew Sexual Assault Lawsuit

British police said Monday that they would take no action after having reviewed a document related to a U.S. civil sexual assault lawsuit filed against Queen Elizabeth II’s son Prince Andrew.

Virginia Giuffre, who has accused Andrew of sexually abusing her when she was a teenager, filed the suit in August in U.S. District Court for Southern New York. The suit alleges that convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who died by suicide in 2019 after he was arrested on federal sex trafficking charges, and his longtime associate, Ghislaine Maxwell, compelled her to engage in sexual acts with Andrew 20 years ago.

She sued Andrew under New York state’s Child Victims Act alleging that he had committed “rape in the first degree.”
