London – The British, who recently shy away from the public because of allegations of abuse Prince Andrew reportedly wants to be seen alongside other royals again soon. The 62-year-old will attend a memorial service for his father Prince Philip, who died last year, next Tuesday (March 29) at Westminster Abbey. This was reported by the PA news agency, citing unnamed sources.
It would be Andrew’s first public appearance since a multi-million dollar settlement with plaintiff Virginia Giuffre in mid-February. The American had accused him of sexually abusing her several times when she was 17. Her lawsuit in a New York court was dropped with the settlement.
Andrew had already resigned from his public duties for the royal family in 2019. Later he also had to relinquish his military ranks and the salutation Royal Highness. It is considered extremely unlikely that he will return to official dates representatives of the royal family perceives.
Prince Harry (37) had already canceled his participation in the memorial service for his grandfather. He has been living in the USA with his wife Meghan (40) and their two children for several years and has said goodbye to the closer circle of the Royals. He is also currently in litigation with the UK Home Office over police protection for himself and his family when visiting their home country. The government no longer wants to ensure their safety, although Harry has offered to pay the costs out of his own pocket. (dpa)
