Prince Andrew’s sex accuser Virginia Giuffre said Buckingham Palace – and “the Firm” – should “hang their heads in shame” after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“Well at least we know who #meganandharry is talking about when they say #BuckinghamPalace & #TheFirm protected other royals but wouldn’t protect them or their newborn baby #Archie,” Giuffre he said in a tweet on Tuesday.
“Everyone should bow their heads in shame,” the 37-year-old added to her 88,000 followers, comparing the Palace’s apparent handling of the claims made against the Duke of York to the way Meghan and Harry were treated.
The Palace has been accused of having “double standards” to investigate allegations of intimidation directed against Markle, but not allegations of sexual abuse involving Andrew.
Andrew, 61, believed to be the queen’s favorite son, became embroiled in the pedophile Jeffrey Epstein scandal after Giuffre claimed he was forced to sleep with royalty when he was 17 years old.
The scandal over Andrew’s friendship with the financier led the Duke of York to withdraw from his royal duties in November 2019, after a disastrous interview with the BBC in which he offered a series of bizarre claims to defend himself against Giuffre’s accusations. .
“The only crisis the constitution will see is if they continue to bury the truth and spread lies. #BuckinghamPalace must address #PrinceAndrew and the lack of any form of accountability, “said Giuffre. added in his comments on Tuesday.
In other comments she posted on twitter Comparing Markle’s alleged harassment of her aides while she was a member of the greater royalty, Giuffre said she has “accused [Andrew] of something much worse and keep hearing crickets. “
She added: “I wholeheartedly understand the need for due process. That’s all I’ve asked for, research
“I have credible witnesses, flight logs and the photo. What does Andy have? Woking pizza and not breaking a sweat? Doesn’t all this deserve some kind of investigation?
“For too long I have waited for some form of justice and for too long Andrew has escaped having to pay for abusing me as a minor and abusing me publicly with his heinous words and denials.” Giuffre continued.
“Hopefully one day I get what I deserve.”
However, a source close to Prince Andrew has rejected Giuffre.
“The Duke of York remains removed from his royal duties until the legal process is resolved and while a legal investigation continues into the circumstances surrounding Jeffrey Epstein,” the source told the Sun.
“That investigation is not being conducted through Twitter,” the source added.
Buckingham Palace never ordered an investigation into the allegations against Andrew, who was accused of having sex with Giuffre after Epstein and his alleged “Mrs.” Ghislaine Maxwell trafficked her.
The Duke of York has vehemently denied the allegations.
Markle and Harry have denied the allegations of intimidation against the Duchess, although they are reportedly expected to be involved in the investigation if formal allegations come to light.
