PRINCE Charles to loan brother Andrew’s multi-million dollar sexual abuse payout to save family honor
The Prince of Wales, 73, is raising most of the agreed £7million the Queen also deposit – but no public money is used.
The unemployed Duke of York, 62, Giuffre now has 10 days to deposit the money to get his accuser, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, to drop her sex abuse lawsuit.
He will repay Charles and Her Majesty, 95, if he receives the money from the £17million sale of his ski chalet in Verbier, Switzerland, which could take two months.
If he does not repay, Andrew will lose money from the Queen’s will, which is believed to have funded his litigation.
The Royals feared a repetition of their fierce criticism Newsnight interview in 2019.
In it, Andrew opened up about his dealings with a convicted pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein – Found dead in prison in 2019 while charged with sex trafficking.
He said he had “no recollection of ever meeting Epstein’s sex slave Mrs. Roberts Giuffre however, was accused of having sex with her three times in 2001 when she was 17.
Commenting on the decision to loan Andrew the money, a source said: “There have been family discussions about how to ‘take a little bit from here and a little bit from there’.

“Once it (money from the chalet) gets into his bank account, he can pay it back to his brother and everyone else who lent him money.
“But this payment (to Virginia) must be paid on time. He cannot rely on the sale of the chalet. Too many things can go wrong and the court doesn’t wait for property requests.”
A friend of Andrew’s added, “He has no income or money to pay off a bank loan, so family is the only way to guarantee payment.”
Prince Andrew, who lives in the 31-room dorm with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson Royal Lodge in Windsor, Mrs Roberts Giuffre, 38, is paying around £7million.
This includes a sum for her charity for victims of sex trafficking.
A spokesman for Prince Andrew who denies Mrs. Giuffres Claims, did not comment.
Neither did spokesmen for the Queen and Prince Charles.
