According to Thomas Markle, his daughter needs to turn to lawyers and lawyers. “I know she had some business with Andrew. Of course there were. If she has been to any events or places he has been, she needs to speak up. She has no right to refuse it really. I understand that Andrew’s reputation is damaging to the royal family. If she knows something and was involved in Andrew’s circle in any way, in one form or another, it is her duty to tell about it, ”he told reporters.

Note that earlier the lawyer of the victim had already said that he would need Meghan Markle’s testimony. Since the Duchess of Sussex is close to the royal family, it was assumed that she could know insider information and significantly influence the further development of the case. 

The fact is that while Megan is in the United States, lawyers have jurisdiction over her. “She cannot be excluded from participation in the process, because she is a duchess. In fact, by leaving the UK and taking her prince with her, she gave up her right to be the Duchess of Sussex,” added her father.

As a reminder, according to documents obtained by E! News, a woman named Virginia Giuffre  accuses the Duke of York of sexually abusing  her on three separate occasions during her minority years. She claims he knew she was being held hostage by Jeffrey Epstein and his accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently being held in federal prison awaiting trial for human trafficking.

Andrew himself was previously associated with Jeffrey Epstein, who was arrested in 2007 by a financier. He, meanwhile, forced Virginia to have sexual intercourse with Prince Andrew. Moreover, Epstein trafficked minors for the purpose of sexual exploitation. Virginia demanded damages from the son of Elizabeth II for beatings and intentional infliction of emotional stress.
