Prince Andrew and Virginia Giuffre have settled their civil sex assault case out of court, according to reports.
Court documents claim that the Duke of York has denied the allegations against him but ‘regrets his association’ with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
Reportedly, a settlement amount has been agreed upon but won’t be disclosed.

It’s believed that the 61-year-old plans to make a ‘substantial donation’ to Giuffre’s charity which supports victims’ rights.
Supposedly, this ‘pledge’ demonstrates his ‘regret’ at being associated with Epstein and symbolises that he is a part of ‘the fight against the evils of sex trafficking’.
According to reports, the court documents state: “Prince Andrew intends to make a substantial donation to Ms Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights.
“Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms Giuffre’s character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks.”
It continues: “It is known that Jeffrey Epstein trafficked countless young girls over many years. Prince Andrew regrets his association with Epstein, and commends the bravery of Ms Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others.
“He pledges to demonstrate his regret for his association with Epstein by supporting the fight against the evils of sex trafficking, and by supporting its victims.”
The Duke’s representatives reportedly commented that he had nothing left to say on the case, beyond what was said in the court statement.
