Accused of rape and sexual assault by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, Prince Andrew will be determined on January 4, 2022. During this trial, Meghan Markle could be called to the stand and become an important witness in this case, as revealed by David Boies, the lawyer of the plaintiff.

Will the year 2022 be more favorable to Prince Andrew? Targeted by a civil complaint, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who accuses him of having raped her three times in 2001, the son of Queen Elizabeth II will be determined on Tuesday, January 4, 2022. During this new trial, the Duke of York will know if the charges against him will be dropped or not. Determined to discredit the testimony of the plaintiff, the ex-husband of Sarah Ferguson could be confronted with the testimony of Meghan Markle. The wife of Prince Harry could indeed take the stand and play an important role in this scandal that shakes the British royal family, as revealed by David Boies, Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s lawyer, in the columns of the Daily Beast. “Because of her past association with him, she may well have important knowledge and will certainly have knowledge,” he said.

Residing in the United States, the Duchess of Sussex could bring new elements that would support the complaint of Virginia Roberts Giuffre. “She was at least for a while a close associate of Prince Andrew and therefore probably saw what he did, and perhaps if not what he did when he heard people talking about it,” said the 80-year-old lawyer whose reputation is well known. From then on, David Boies has an almost blind confidence in Archie and Lilibet’s mother who will only be able to “tell the truth”. A next testimony that may spoil the end of year celebrations at Windsor Castle.

Prince Andrew very concerned about his trial

The Christmas festivities will have to do without him. Wishing to put all the chances on his side, the approach of his trial, Prince Andrew has decided to devote himself body and soul to the preparation of the latter. “Incredibly stressed,” as reported by the tabloid The Mirror, the father of Beatrice and Eugenie of York is working hard on his defense. A source close to the royal family understands that the man is “totally exhausted” by his legal battle and would spend most of his nights talking to his lawyers based in California. In addition to the accusations against him, the brother of Prince Charles is also concerned about the staggering cost of his legal fees, paid by Her Majesty.
