Following a review sparked by a Jeffrey Epstein complainant pursuing legal action against Prince Andrew, London police have determined they would take no further action.
Virginia Giuffre is suing Prince Philip, the son of Queen Elizabeth II, for allegedly sexually assaulting her as a teenager.
She claims she was forced to have sex with the prince in London when she was 17 years old. She was a minor in the United States at the time of the alleged occurrence.
The Duke of York, Prince Andrew, has unequivocally refuted all of the charges.
When asked about the recently announced US legal action, London's Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick revealed in August that she had requested police to look into Epstein's claims once more.
When asked about allegations of sexual assault against Prince Andrew, she declared on the radio that "no one is above the law."
"As a matter of procedure, MPS officers reviewed a document released in August 2021 as part of a US civil action," the Met stated today. We are not taking any further action as a result of this review."
The force had also completed its investigation into allegations made by Channel 4 in June that British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell trafficked, groomed, and mistreated women and girls in the UK.
Maxwell was Epstein's ex-girlfriend.
"We also reviewed information passed to us by a media organization in June 2021," the Met stated. There will be no further action taken after this review is completed."
The force stated that it continues to communicate with other law enforcement authorities involved in the Epstein investigation.
According to the Sunday Times, officers allegedly called Ms. Giuffre, although the Met has declined to clarify who they may have talked to as part of their inquiries.
Last Monday, a US judge consented to let Andrew's attorneys see a document of a 2009 settlement that they hope will dismiss the royal's civil action.
