    Prince Andrew breaks cover for first time since bombshell sex case ruling

    Prince Andrew has been seen for the first time since the bombshell sex abuse case ruling.

    A car carrying the Duke of York was pictured being driven from his home, Royal Lodge, near Windsor Castle in Berkshire today.

    The Duke of York is facing trial over allegations he sexually assaulted Virginia Giuffre when she was 17 after a US judge ruled her civil lawsuit can proceed.

    Judge Lewis Kaplan's decision is a huge blow for Andrew, whose lawyer argued earlier this month the case should be thrown out as Ms Giuffre had waived her right to pursue the duke by signing a confidential settlement with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

    The Queen's second son could pursue an out of court, and potentially multimillion-pound, settlement, but there have been suggestions Ms Giuffre may not be prepared to accept a deal.

    Media lawyer Mark Stephens said: "Andrew has got no good options now. He can't make things better."

    He told the BBC: "Essentially, I think he's either going to have to engage in the trial process or he's going to have to settle and that may well be his least worst option."
