Meghan Markle news latest – Shock as Duchess ‘could be called as WITNESS’ in Prince Andrew underage sex lawsuit


MEGHAN Markle could be called as a witness in the Prince Andrew sex lawsuit.

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have been identified by lawyer’s working for Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre as someone who could be counted on “to tell the truth” in the civil case.

According to the Daily Beast, the lawyer representing Giuffre in her legal action, David Boies, said there were two other key reasons why Meghan could be called; her proximity to Prince Andrew in recent years and the fact she lives in the US.

Boies emphasised that Markle is only “one of the people we are considering, we haven’t made a decision yet.” He says Andrew’s 95-year-old mother, the Queen, won’t be called out of respect for her age.

Ms Giuffre, 38, claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew three times in 2001, when she was just 17. She seeks unspecified damages.

Prince Andrew vehemently denies all the allegations made against him and his lawyers want the civil action to be dismissed, saying it was “baseless” and adding that “sensationalism and innuendo have prevailed over the truth”.
