The Duke of York will face a civil trial in the US over sexual abuse claims after a judge dismissed his attempt to have the lawsuit thrown out.

Prince Andrew is being sued by Virginia Roberts Giuffre for rape after he allegedly sexually abused her when she was 17.

Andrew denies all allegations against him.

According to BBC, the case against the 61-year-old Duke of York could be heard in court later this year.

Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the development, saying, “We would not comment on what is an ongoing legal matter."

Ms Giuffre alleges that she was trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein, who died in prison in 2019 on sex trafficking charges.
