Epstein accuser Virginia Giuffre, who previously accused Prince Andrew of violating her in the most inappropriate manner possible when she was 17, agreed to a multi-million dollar memoir deal, the New York Post reports.
Girufree has alleged for years that Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew alike had committed horrific crimes against her as a minor. Previously, she and Prince Andrew agreed to a $12 million dollar settlement under the condition that neither party would publicly discuss the case or settlement details for a year, according to the outlet.
That year has now come to an end.

The outlet noted that Prince Andrew has repeatedly proclaimed his innocence and that he was stripped of his HRH title and public duties as a consequence of the accusations.
A report by the Post indicated that it is not known if Giuffre’s memoir will feature details about the agreement she reached with Andrew, or if he will be able to have it blocked.
It is very bizarre to have a settlement with a gag order lasting only one year, as in Prince Andrew's settlement with Virginia Giuffre.
We need to ask: Why only one year?https://t.co/pNLIWIIsOJ

This news of Giuffre’s upcoming memoir comes as the memoir of Prince Harry, “Spare,” is slated to soon be released.
“Andrew is going to obviously be invited to the coronation, although he will not be invited onto the balcony at Buckingham Palace,” a royal insider reportedly told the New York Post. “But the palace will want as little drama as possible, so this is terrible timing.”
In related news, a recently released interview revealed that convicted trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell emphatically and repeatedly said that the infamous photo of Prince Andrew wrapping his arms around the semi-bare waist of the then-17-year-old Giuffre is fabricated.
“I don’t believe it’s real for a second,” Maxwell reportedly told British channel TalkTV. “It’s a fake. … There’s never been an original, and further, there is no photograph. I’ve only ever seen a photocopy of it.”
