Virginia Giuffre BANNED from publicly speaking of Prince Andrew until Queen's Platinum Jubilee
Virginia Giuffre is likely to be banned from speaking publicly about the allegations of sexual encounters in the early 2000s. This ban will be applicable until the Queen's Platinum Jubilee as per the terms of the settlement with the Duke of York.
Virginia Giuffre, now known as Roberts which is her married name, was allegedly forced to enter into sexual relations with Andrew not once but three times when she was a mere 17 years old. According to Roberts, she did this under the instructions of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Finally, in January 2022, Roberts was permitted to proceed with suing the 61-year old royal for 'unspecified damages' in a New York civil court. Prince Andrew had vowed to fight, take the stand for himself and he did that for quite some time. However, yesterday, instead of trying to prove himself innocent, he agreed to pay a large sum to settle this case before the case could even see the inside of a courtroom and the jury decided the fate of Prince Andrew.
Recently, more details of the settlement have surfaced. As per the agreement, Miss Giuffre has also agreed to share her story publicly only after a significant occasion for the Royal Family passes. As the monarch completes 70 years on the throne, Roberts has agreed to tell her story only later this year.
It was heard that both parties would need to stick to the terms of the arrangement of the carefully worded statement. However, once the Jubilee celebrations are done, Giuffre is likely to be allowed to tell her story via a book. Lawyer Mitchell Epner said, "Ordinarily, you would have a complete non-disclosure [agreement] on both sides. Since it's a settlement in the context of, on its face, an apology from Prince Andrew,' [he believes Miss Giuffre] 'has agreed not to say anything [but] she will be in a position to write a book, probably for this Christmas season'.
