UK court to ensure sexual assault papers can be served on Prince Andrew

LONDON (Reuters) -London’s High Court said on Wednesday it would take steps if necessary to serve papers on Britain’s Prince Andrew in a U.S. lawsuit brought by a woman who accuses him of sexually assaulting her two decades ago. The prince, Queen Elizabeth’s second son, is accused by Virginia Giuffre of assaulting her when she was 17, at a time she says she was being abused by the financier Jeffrey Epstein. Andrew, 61, who is officially known as the Duke of York, has rejected the accusations and his lawyers have described the case as baseless.
