Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Giuffre signs deal ‘worth millions’ for memoir after Epstein scandal

Virginia Giuffre has reportedly signed a deal to release a memoir one year after agreeing to a settlement with Prince Andrew

Virginia Giuffre, who accused Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, of sexually assaulting her at 17, has allegedly signed a book deal.

The campaigner, now 39, from California, reached a multimillion-pound settlement with Prince Andrew, 62, over her sexual abuse case against him last year.

She also signed a one-year agreement that neither of them would publicly discuss the case or settlement details.

Despite agreeing to the payout, Prince Andrew did not admit to any wrongdoings and has continued to deny all the claims.

Virginia Giuffre (née Roberts), publicly revealed her claims that she was trafficked and abused as a teenager by the late Jeffrey Epstein and the Duke of York.

It is now believed that she has signed a book deal worth “millions”, with multiple sources confirming to The New York Post. However, the publisher that has won the rights to the highly-anticipated memoir is yet to be announced.

After the allegations against the late Queen Elizabeth’s second son were made public, he lost his HRH title and all his public duties as a working royal.

It is believed that the book will focus on her allegations against the late Jeffrey Epstein, and sources close to the deal suggest that it is unlikely that Giuffre will be allowed to write about Prince Andrew, or their settlement.

Regardless of this, any book from Giuffre will be seen as an embarrassment for the Royal Family, who are still dealing with the effects of Prince Harry’s explosive memoir, Spare.

There has been speculation that the release would also cast a shadow over King Charles III’s coronation celebrations, which will take place in May.

Prince Andrew’s attendance at the historic event has also been brought into question, and according to a source, Andrew will be invited, but won’t be appearing on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.

Giuffre’s documents, which are referred to as her “memoir,” were first revealed in August 2019 amidst court records related to her lawsuit against Epstein’s former lover, Ghislane Maxwell, which was settled in May 2017.

The memoir is said to have detailed Giuffre’s life as a teenager inside Epstein’s alleged sex ring, where she allegedly was also told to sleep with Epstein’s powerful friends, including Prince Andrew and former senator and Disney chairman George Mitchell.

She described how Ghislane Maxwell scouted her whilst she was working at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. According to Giuffre, Maxwell invited her to audition for a job as a masseuse, but then groomed her for sex work instead.

Ghislane was arrested in July 2020 and accused of participating in the sexual abuse of underage girls and of sex-trafficking minors. She was found guilty and is currently serving a 20-year sentence in a Florida jail.

After experiencing so much, so young, Virginia Giuffre (née Roberts), has become a campaigner and founder of ‘Speak Out, Act, Reclaim’ (SOAR), which is a non-profit organisation that strives to “empower survivors to reclaim their stories and bring an end to sex trafficking.”
