Sources close to the Royal Family say they’d been braced for 比阿特丽斯, 33, to be called as a key witness.

During a car crash Newsnight interview in 2019, Andrew claimed he was at Pizza Express in Woking with his daughter on the night at the centre of claims against him.

然而, in a surprise move last night, legal counsel for accuser Virginia Giuffre say they only plan to seek depositions from two British witnesses, the Telegraph 报告.

Robert Olney, the Duke’s former equerry, and Shukri Walker, who claims to have seen Andrew at Tramp nightclub in London on the night he is alleged to have forced Ms Giuffre to have sex with him, will be called.

Mr Olney is thought to have information about the Duke’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein as his name appeared in the convicted paedophile’s “little black book,” court documents reveal.

It means both Beatrice and Sarah Ferguson won’t have to fly to New York to give evidence if a trial does ultimately take place.
