Prince Andrew will go to court – level 1

19-01-2022 07:00

Prince Andrew is the third child of Queen Elizabeth II. He has many problems right now. He returns his titles to the Queen. He does not use his royal title anymore.

The problems start last year. Virginia Giuffre says that Prince Andrew has sex with her. It happens when she is 17 years old.

Prince Andrew is a friend of Jeffrey Epsteint. Jeffrey Epstein is an American businessman. He goes to prison in 2008. He is a sex offender. He dies in prison.

Prince Andrew will go to court in the summer. He must explain what happens between him and Virginia Giuffre. Andrew says that he never does anything wrong to that woman. Many people do not believe him.

Difficult words: title (a special name that means you have special rights), royal (a king or queen and their family), sex offender (when a court says that a person carries out a sex crime).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
