The Duke of York could have to pay more than $5 million (£3.7 million) to his accuser to persuade her to settle, 10 times the sum she received from Jeffrey Epstein….

The Duke is currently waiting on tenterhooks for a judge to decide whether Virginia Roberts' lawsuit will be ditched

However, Virginia Roberts Giuffre is unlikely to accept a financial settlement because she wants to send a message that anyone accused of preying on young girls will face the full force of the law.

It’s thought that the Duke could have to pay out more than $5million (£3.7million) to persuade her to settle.

Ms Giuffre is unlikely to accept any financial settlement, according to the Telegraph. She wants her case to send a message that anyone accused of preying on young girls will face the full force of the law.

The newspaper claims that she would not want to “advance the message” that money makes sexual assault go away.

Her lawyers state that one reason the civil action was brought is to show that those with power and privilege must still face justice.

And they are aware of the potential backlash that could come about if they opted to take the Duke’s money rather than go to trial.

As Andrew has found a buyer for his Swiss chalet, he could use the money to pay his mounting legal fees.
