Prince Andrew is reportedly keeping out of sight at The Royal Lodge to avoid being handed sex abuse court papers by his accuser’s American lawyers.
PRINCE Andrew is keeping a low profile inside his royal mansion so as to avoid officials who trying to serve a rape lawsuit on him, it is claimed.
Security guards apparently intervened in “multiple attempts” by lawyers last week to hand the document to The Duke at Royal Lodge.
The court case against The Duke of York, 61, accuses him of raping sex slave Virginia Guiffre in 2001 when she was just a “frightened and vulnerable child”.
The mum of three, now 38 — who says she was “lent out” by disgraced Jeffrey Epstein and his madame Ghislaine Maxwell — is said to be demanding ‘substantial’ damages.
Prince Andrew, not seen in public for 19 days, is said to be refusing to leave his home, which is set in 98 private acres in Windsor Great Park, Berks.
If he refuses to accept the civil summons, issued by a New York court clerk three weeks ago, the Duke risks facing a “judgment by default” next month.
However, a source said: “There’s no way he will risk poking his head outside right now. He will stay out of view.”

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
