PRINCE Andrew is to swerve a hearing in his sex assault civil case today by having no representatives taking part.
His US lawyers will not be joining the phone conference with his accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s team, as they continue to stone-wall the case.
Earlier this week, it was revealed to The Sun that Prince Andrew has been served with papers over bombshell sex assault allegations from Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts.
But Andrew, who has been staying with the Queen on her private estate in Scotland, has denied receiving the summons – with a judge due to decide today.
Royal aides are said to be furious the Duke of York has intruded on the Queen’s private summer retreat and made her look like she is harbouring him after he fled his own home in Windsor last week.
