After the news of the lawsuit filed by Virginia Giuffre against Prince Andrew for sexual violence against minors, the queen has called an emergency meeting at Balmoral. The position of the Duke of York is complicated, called by Giuffre’s lawyer to answer the terrible accusations. The sovereign is very angry with her son. The salvation of the Crown, as always, has priority.
There is no peace for the Queen Elizabeth.
The sovereign has recently arrived in Balmoral, for the summer holidays. And he immediately had to convene a summit between the closest officials and the front lines of the Windsor to discuss thorny cases in the family.
In addition to the “usual” Harry and Meghan and to their excesses, this time there is a more burning issue on the plate.
It is, of course, the Duke of York, Prince Andrew, after news of a civil lawsuit brought against him by Virginia Giuffre for sexual assault.

The facts would go back to years ago, when the Giuffre was still a minor, as part of the discussed red-light parties organized by billionaire Jeffrey Epstein and his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell.
David Boies, Giuffre’s legal representative, has no doubts: he told the BBC that the Duke of York cannot continue to hide behind the walls of the Palace, but must answer for the very serious accusations that have been made against him.
The difficulties for Queen Elizabeth
And the Queen Elizabeth? His Majesty has no choice. He must defend the Royal Family and the throne at any cost. Months ago the sovereign had forced the third child to retire to private life, still guaranteeing him diplomatic protection. Now things get even more complicated.
And for Elizabeth II protecting the British Crown, as we know, remains the priority, always and in any case.
We will see what will happen next on both sides, from that of the accusing victims to that of the alleged perpetrator of horrific crimes.
According to what was also stated by the lawyer Boies, there is compromising evidence against him.
