‘Jail Prince Andrew – this isn’t William Wallace era when Royals could do whatever they want, says Virginia Roberts’ dad


THE father of Virginia Roberts has called for Prince Andrew to go to jail and says it’s “no longer the time of William Wallace when the Royals could do whatever they want”.

It comes as the Duke is set to swerve a hearing in his sex assault civil case today by having no representatives taking part.

Virginia Roberts Giuffre alleges she was sexually assaulted by Prince Andrew
The Duke vehemently denies the allegations

Sky Roberts said he would like Prince Andrew to go to jail as he “needs to be held accountable”.

He told Good Morning Britain: “This is not the time of William Wallace where the royals can do whatever they want.

“The times have changed. Prince Andrew thinks it’s still those times where he can do whatever he wants.”

Roberts, 38, who is one of the most well-known Jeffrey Epstein victims, is accusing the prince of abusing her three times when she was under the age of 18.

Andrew, however, has strongly denied the claims in the past and has said he doesn’t recall meeting Roberts – who also goes by her married name Giuffre.

His lawyers claim that the court papers were not properly served.

Sky hit back at the duke as he claimed: “He knows that he’s done wrong. Like I’ve been reading this week – even trying to serve him the papers, he instructed his guard to not accept any court papers.

“An innocent man doesn’t do that – only a guilty man does that.

“If he’s innocent, why block these papers coming to him for this civil suit? I’m just proud of my daughter that she’s going after him for this.”

The duke’s UK-based legal team has never intended to participate.

His accuser’s lawyers insist he has been served court papers in accordance with English and international law.

They say a copy of the summons was emailed to Royal Household staff and his lawyers were informed by email and post.

However, Gary Bloxsome, the duke’s lawyer, claimed the correct procedure was not followed and that the papers should be served through a British court official.

Manhattan federal court judge Lewis Kaplan will ask Ms Giuffre’s legal team to detail their efforts to serve Andrew, 61, with the papers.

Her legal team, led by David Boies, has brought in two more lawyers – Andrew Vallacastin and rising star Sabina Mariella.
