SOURCES close to Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson have said that the duke is 'keen to remarry if he's able to move on with his life following the sexual abuse allegations.

“Sarah and Andrew have been closer than ever in the past year.”

“They still love and care for each other a great deal and have been living together during the pandemic. It has rekindled something and I can see a second wedding happening if it all goes Andrew’s way", the source has said to Vanity Fair.

Yesterday, it was revealed to The Sun that Prince Andrew has been served with papers over bombshell sex assault allegations from Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts.

    PRE-TRIAL CONFERENCE WILL TAKE PLACE AT 9AM TOMORROW

    A pre-trial teleconference for the civil case, led by Judge Kaplan, will be held at 9pm UK time. Andrew was also pictured in 2000 with Epstein and Maxwell on a pheasant shoot on the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

    When asked by Newnight’s Emily Maitlis in 2019 about whether he had invited Epstein to a party, Andrew quickly corrected her: “It was a shooting weekend, a straightforward shooting weekend.”

    Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the latest developments as did Andrew, who has denied any wrongdoing.

    ANDREW’S LAWYERS REJECT NOTION THAT HE HAS BEEN SERVED

    One attempt saw a server turn up to Andrew’s Windsor address and hand the court papers to a cop, who they claim helpfully agreed to hand them to the duke.

    Virginia’s team also managed to get a copy emailed to his lawyers by the Senior Master of the Queen’s Bench Division – a post appointed by Andrew’s mum.

    David Boies, Virginia’s lead lawyer, says at least two methods of alternative service they have used, qualify under US law.

    Lawyers for Prince Andrew are said to reject the notion that he has been legally served.

    PRINCE WILLIAM IS PORTRAYED AS VILLAIN FOR ‘REFUSING TO SPEAK OUT ON RACISM’ IN CONTROVERSIAL NEW TV FILM ESCAPING THE PALACE

    Harry&Meghan: Escaping the Palace will dramatise the Sussex’s ‘escape’ from the Royal Family after the birth of their son Archie.

    The film will portray Prince William as the villain and will show him lecturing his older brother from not speaking out on racism.

    Images show Prince Harry (played by Jordan Dean) and Prince William (played by Jordan Whalen) arguing in a Kensington Palace garden.

    William tells Harry: “What causes problems isn’t colour, it’s culture. Meghan an American. She acts more like a celebrity than a Royal.”

    “You need to bloody well make a statement with me decrying racism. As future King, you need to push on this horrific bullying.”

    EXPLAINED: WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE PRINCE ANDREW SERVED STORY?

    Lawyers acting for Ms Giuffre insist they have served papers on Prince Andrew for a sex assault lawsuit by leaving them with police at the gate of Windsor Royal Lodge on August 27.

    But sources said the Prince’s team believe they had laid a trap for her lawyers and would argue the summons had not been properly served as it should be delivered via a ­British court official.

    Yet lawyers for Ms Giuffre — now 38 but just 17 at the time of the alleged rape in the first degree — are certain they have followed the correct protocol.

    US District Judge Lewis Kaplan, overseeing the case, will rule on whether he has been served. Ms Giuffre’s people have talked with Johanna Sjoberg and Steve Scully, said to be key witnesses, in recent weeks, The Sun on Sunday can reveal.

    Her lawyer David Boies said: “We’ve spoken to a woman who saw them at the Jeffrey Epstein’s mansion and a man who ­witnessed them on the island.”

    'RUNNING TO MUMMY'

    A separate source said Andrew angered senior courtiers by travelling 500 miles to the Highlands on Tuesday with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson.

    They said: “It looks like he is running to mummy and that she is almost harbouring him. No one wants Andrew near Balmoral. It looks like he is hiding behind a woman who is approaching 100 years old.

    “He needs to pull his socks up and face his responsibilities. Going for flight instead of fight is making him look irresponsible and guilty, even if he isn’t.”

    QUEEN SAYS ‘THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS’ OF ROYAL FAMILY ARE WITH VICTIMS OF ‘TERRIBLE’ 9/11 ATTACKS IN MESSAGE TO JOE BIDEN

    On the 20th anniversary of America’s darkest day, the Queen has paid tribute to the victims, first responders and rescue workers.

    The monarch said: “As we mark the 20th anniversary of the terrible attacks on September 11, 2001, my thoughts and prayers – and those of my family and entire nation – remain with the victims, survivors and families affected, as well as the first responders and rescue workers called to duty.

    “My visit to the site of the World Trade Centre in 2010 is held fast in my memory.

    “It reminds me that as we honour those from many nations, faiths and backgrounds who lost their lives, we also pay tribute to the resilience and determinations of the communities who joined together to rebuild.”

    ROYAL SOURCE CLAIMS PRINCE ANDREW IS ACTING ‘AS IF DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THE LEGAL CASE’

    Royal aides are said to be furious he fled his Windsor home last week and arrived at his mum’s summer home, making it look like she is ­harbouring him.

    One royal source last night said: “This is so brazen it is unbelievable. Prince Andrew is carrying on like nothing has happened and as if he hasn’t got a care in the world.

    “It has been bad enough that he appears to have been seeking refuge at Balmoral, where the Queen is trying to have quiet time after a tough year, but to host a shooting party, with some dubious guests shows disrespect to the monarchy.

    “And it is also tone deaf as if he does not care about what is going on with the legal case.”

    PRINCE ANDREW BRAZENLY HOLDS SHOOTING PARTY DAYS BEFORE SEXUAL ASSAULT COURT HEARING

    PRINCE Andrew brazenly held a shooting party yesterday — just two days before a court hearing over sex assault claims against him.

    The Duke of York hosted guests at the Queen’s private 550-acre Balmoral estate despite the legal challenge facing him in a New York court tomorrow.

    And those invited to the ­Scottish retreat are thought to have included the Crown Prince of Bahrain, 51, who is linked to human rights abuses in his home country.

    The gathering came as The Sun revealed Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s lawyers claim they have secured the testimony of two key witnesses who say they saw Andrew, 61, with her on two separate occasions.

    The Prince stated in a disastrous Newsnight interview in 2019 that he had “no recollection” of meeting Ms Giuffre.

    PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE ACCUSED OF ‘BREATHTAKING ENTITLEMENT’ OVER LILIBET’S CHRISTENING BY ROYAL EXPERT

    Rumours suggest the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have requested a formal christening for baby Lilibet at Windsor Castle, Robert Jobson reports.

    Lilibet Diana, who shares both the Queen’s pet name and Harry’s mother Diana’s name, was born in California in June.

    It is not yet know where she will be christened, although royal commentator Robert Jobson suggests it would be “breathtaking” for Meghan and Harry to expect any kind of royal affair.

    Writing in The Mirror, he said: “Now there is talk – as she is already older than her brother Archie was when he was christened – that they are pushing for a ceremony in the private chapel at Windsor Castle.

    “To some, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s sense of entitlement might seem breathtaking.

    “They seem to be blissfully unaware of the mayhem their behaviour has caused the Queen, the monarchy and the Royal Family.”

    HARRY AND MEGHAN’S OPRAH INTERVIEW BOOED BY AUDIENCE AT NATIONAL TV AWARDS

    Sir Trevor McDonald introduced the series of clips on stage, which featured some of the biggest moments of the past 12 months.

    One audience member said: “As soon as Meghan and Harry appeared on screen the audience started booing and then everyone joined in, it was really loud and funny.”

    As a clip of Harry and Meghan’s blockbuster interview in March was shown, the packed out crowd in London’s O2 arena was heard loudly booing.

    However, the booing was not picked up by ITV’s live broadcast.

    The interview, which was watched by 17million people globally, saw the couple raise a number of controversial issues concerning their life in the Royal Family.

    EMAIL TO ROYAL MAIL – FIVE WAYS LEGAL TEAM TRIED TO SERVE PAPERS ON PRINCE ANDREW (CONTINUED…)

    The dramatic approach at the Royal Lodge is revealed in detail in an affidavit by official process server Cesar Augusto Sepulveda.

    He said he first went to the Windsor Great Park residence at 9.30am on August 26.

    He handed his business card to security and was told to wait, the court papers claim.

    Mr Sepulveda then met two Metropolitan police officers, including the head of security, but was told neither the duke nor his staff could be raised. The official server said he was told he could not leave the papers with them and was given details for Andrew’s UK lawyer Mr Bloxsome.

    Mr Sepulveda left a message with Mr Bloxsome but heard nothing back. The server says the writ was handed over when he returned the next day at 9.15am.

    He says he spoke to another Met officer who phoned the head of security.

    Mr Sepulveda was told the court papers “could be left with the Metropolitan Police Officer at the main gates to the property and that this matter would then be forwarded to the legal team”.

    Mr Sepulveda’s statement adds: “The deponent did enquire whether it was possible to meet personally with (Prince Andrew) but told this was not possible.”

    He added that the Met officer said he could not answer as to Andrew’s whereabouts.

    EMAIL TO ROYAL MAIL – FIVE WAYS LEGAL TEAM TRIED TO SERVE PAPERS ON PRINCE ANDREW

    The second attempt saw a copy posted directly to the Lodge — aptly via Royal Mail.

    The court papers were also emailed to Andrew’s US and UK lawyers, including Gary Bloxsome in Britain and Blair Berk in America.

    They were also emailed to Andrew’s lawyers via Barbara Fontaine, Senior Master of the Queen’s Bench Division. The duke’s lawyers confirmed receipt.

    Finally, the papers were emailed to the Duke of York’s office. An automated reply cheerily said: “Thank you for your email.

    “This is an automatic acknowledgment to tell you we have received your email safely.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE’S PREFERRED NATURAL ALTERNATIVE TO BOTOX IS NOW ON AMAZON

    Back in 2018, when Meghan was being welcomed into the Royal Family, she was rumored to be a fan of this product, which has been dubbed”Botox on a bottle.”

    According to the brand, in just 60 minutes, your skin will have fewer wrinkles and have a visibly younger look.

    Many have already tried it, taking to Amazon reviews to rave about the product.

    One actually used it in place of Botox amid the Covid-19 pandemic: “This is working. Truly and honestly after a week of use, I woke up and looked in the mirror and didn’t see a riverbed of furrows.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE’S ENGAGEMENT DRESS DESIGNER ‘USED FASHION HOUSE TO FUND LAVISH LIFE INCLUDING £1,500 WEEKLY SALON TRIPS’

    Tamara Ralph, 39, and her ex-business partner Michael Russo, 40, “personally enriched themselves” before their company Ralph & Russo collapsed, according to claims in documents released by the High Court.

    Ms Ralph is being sued by the company’s administrators for £20.8 million in damages, but has denied any wrongdoing and is defending against the claim.

    Ralph & Russo designed the Duchess of Sussex’s £56,000 engagement dress, as well as gowns for stars including Gwyneth Paltrow and Kylie Minogue.

    Administrators for the company are now suing Ms Ralph, after telling the High Court that she “extracted substantial sums” when she was in “de facto control”.

    In newly released legal papers, it is alleged that Ms Ralph spent more than £1,500 on “weekly blow-drys” at the Larry King hair salon in South Kensington, London – and the cost was charged to a company credit card, the Mail on Sunday reports.

    Court documents also claim that Ms Ralph spent more than £300 of company cash on luxury lingerie at a store in Paris and £130 on an eyelash treatment.
    It has also been claimed that Ms Ralph complained that her £225,000 salary was “extremely low” for someone in her position.

    THE CROWN PRODUCERS REVEAL THE TWO UNKNOWN CHILD STARS TO PLAY PRINCE WILLIAM AND PRINCE HARRY IN NEW SERIES

    Seven-year-old Teddy Rawley will play the young royal, while Timothee Sambor, 11, will appear as his older brother Prince William.

    A source said: “Netflix bosses wanted to make sure they had the right actors for the role given the young royals are so well known and were in the public eye so much at that age.

    “They didn’t rush it and found Teddy and Timothee who they hope will be warmly received. They’re about to become household names in their own right.”

    We told back in June how bosses on the Netflix series had considered dying a child’s hair so they could find someone appropriate for the role of runaway royal Harry.

    Ginger-haired people are in decline, as a recessive gene has to be passed on by both parents. Harry will be aged six to 13 in the next series.

    Harry was previously portrayed by six-year-old Arran Tinker, who had strawberry blonde hair but only appeared briefly.

    Elizabeth Debicki, 31, takes over from Emma Corrin, 25, to play Diana and was seen this week alongside the young actors.

    PRINCE ANDREW BELIEVES HE CAN RETURN TO PUBLIC LIFE

    Andrew, 61, is yet to respond to a sex abuse civil claim lodged in a New York court a month ago.

    Jeffrey Epstein’s former sex slave Virginia Giuffre accuses him of “rape in the first degree” and there have been “multiple attempts” to serve him with papers for the lawsuit.

    Andrew, who fled his Windsor mansion for the Scottish Highlands on Tuesday, has previously denied any wrongdoing.

    And a source said he remains “utterly convinced” that he will be able to brush off the claims.
