The High Court has agreed to notify Prince Andrew about the lawsuit launched against him by former Jeffrey Epstein’s victim Virginia Giuffre.
The High Court said in a statement: “The lawyers acting for Ms Giuffre have now provided further information to the High Court, and the High Court has accepted the request for service under the Hague Service Convention.”
Prince Andrew had argued that papers left with a police officer at the gates of his Windsor home last month meant that he had not been “served” with the papers.
However, the Hague Service Convention is a treaty that obliges the High Court to find the most practical way to serve the Giuffre case on Prince Andrew.
It could order an officer of the Court to take the documents once more to Windsor, or the Court could be asked to approve an alternative method, such as posting or emailing them, or leaving them with one of the Prince’s lawyers.
Giuffre claims that when she was 17 and underage Epstein forced her to have sex with Andrew at Maxwell’s London townhouse.
She also alleges she was sexually assaulted by Andrew on two other occasions.
He has vehemently denied the allegations.
