The royal family has been so worried about the revelations in Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, that they seem to have forgotten that another crisis is brewing right under their noses. Prince Andrew’s scandal is about to rear its ugly head again because Virginia Giuffre, who accused him of raping her in 2001 on three separate occasions when she was 17, will soon be free to speak openly about the situation.

After settling the civil case with Andrew last year, Giuffre had a one-year gag order that will expire in mid-February. Her attorney Lisa Bloom indicated to Times Radio that she expects her client will “use her voice to speak out.” She praised Giuffre for being a “tremendous advocate for women, not only victims of Jeffrey Epstein, but victims in general.” Bloom added, “I don’t expect her to remain silent.”

Giuffre has reportedly signed a book deal to write about her story as a trafficking victim and it’s going to garner plenty of negative royal headlines for Prince Andrew. Charles wants to focus on his coronation, but behind palace walls, things are very messy. It’s time for him to get his house in order.
