The Prince has been living at Windsor for the last five months of lockdown but according to reports, he has visited his mum to discuss the developments in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.
A SOURCE disclosed that: “The Queen and Andrew will have lots to discuss. So much has come out over the summer.

The prince’s lawyers, however, insisted the Duke has repeatedly offered to help them with the case. The US Department of Justice officially asked for Andrew to be handed over to give evidence in a request to the Home Office in April this year.

British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, a friend of the Duke’s, is awaiting trial in the US after being charged with procuring teenage girls for Epstein to abuse.
