Prince Andrew faced intense pressure from his mother Queen
Elizabeth II and Prince Charles in order to reach a “settlement in
principle” with Virginia Giuffre, his accuser.

Speaking to Mirror, a source shared that the royal
family did not want Prince Andrew’s sexual abuse case to go for a trial and in
order to prevent further damage pressurised the Duke of York for a settlement.

According to documents, it is understood that he will pay £12
million to Virginia in order to prevent further embarrassment.

For the unversed, Virginia accused the Duke of York of sexually
abusing her when she was 17.

“It was made absolutely crystal clear to Andrew he has to sort
this mess out,” the source said.

“It would have been unthinkable for the case to have reached trial
under the glare of the international media.

“It has been a disaster from the start and everyone was in
agreement it had not only destroyed his reputation but had the capacity to
seriously damage that of the monarchy as well. In such an important year for
the Queen, enough was enough.”

The publication also reported that Andrew was “under intense
pressure from the very top”.
