Prince Andrew latest news – Duke’s sex abuse trial fate may be decided within HOURS as Maxwell witness breaks silence

PRINCE Andrew is still awaiting a ruling on his bid to have Virginia Giuffre’s sexual assault civil lawsuit against him thrown out of court.

Prince Andrew denies all the allegations against him and says he does not remember meeting Ms Giuffre.
