A new judicial tile arrives for the royal family of England. Queen Elizabeth’s son will go to trial for rape. Prince Andrew is accused by Virginia Roberts, a woman who was a minor at the time. “When I was 17 he abused me at Epstein’s house.” The woman – according to the press – has long accused him of having abused her three times in 2001, filed a complaint with the Manhattan court, which will now have to proceed. It had never happened that a senior member of the British Royal Family went to trial and for such infamous charges. Andrea has always been Elizabeth’s favorite son, who is faced with yet another scandal of her long reign.
Roberts, – continues La Stampa – who today lives in Australia with her husband’s surname, Giuffre, was part of the circle of minors enlisted by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide in prison in August 2019, and by his friend Ghislaine Maxwell, who was arrested eleven months later. Prince Andrew allegedly abused Virginia for the first time in Maxwell’s home in London, then in Epstein’s residences in New York and the Caribbean.
