Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Andrew
UK law enforcement agencies have decided to close the investigation into the 61-year-old son of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Andrew, who was accused of raping a minor. Since no new evidence was provided by Virginia Giuffre, who accused Prince Andrew of a sex crime, the British police found no reason to continue the investigation.
Recall that Virginia Giuffre, who was one of the victims of the late Jeffrey Epstein, accused of sex trafficking in minors and pedophilia, accused Prince Andrew of rape – she claimed that she was forced to have sex with him three times. On two occasions she was underage. Prince Andrew kept in touch with a financier who committed suicide in a prison cell. According to Giuffre, the first time Prince Andrew had sex with her was in London at the home of Gilaine Maxwell, Epstein's longtime companion.
Prince Andrew denied all accusations against him. He stated that he did not remember ever dating Virginia or having sexual intercourse with her. And Buckingham Palace called her statements false and unfounded.
However, there is a photograph taken in London in which they pose together. In the picture Virginia is 17 years old.

The lawsuit in the United States continues. In Scotland Yard, despite the completion of the investigation, they said they were ready to cooperate with their American colleagues.
