CIVIL WAR IN PRINCE ANDREW’S CAMP OVER SEXUAL ASSAULT LAWSUIT (CONTINUED…)

Royal insiders are looking to Gary Bloxsome — a respected partner at Blackfords law firm, which is masterminding Andrew’s response to the unprecedented royal crisis — to steady the ship.

Some fear that Andrew’s legal team may have tried to “call the bluff” of Ms Giuffre’s representatives. David Boies, her lawyer, approached Andrew’s legal team last month warning of a suit if they did not negotiate. Talks did not follow.

Ms Giuffre, 38, filed a law suit in New York on Monday, stating she was brought to the UK by paedo Jeffrey Epstein, a pal of Ghislaine Maxwell, to have sex with Prince Andrew.

She accused the Duke of sex assault and “rape in the first degree”.

The source added: “As far as the rest of the Royal Family can see, it looks like they have called her bluff and she called it right back. Perhaps they were not expecting the suit to land. However legally correct, a danger is it looks like headless chicken mode, figuring what to do. It defies belief.”
