Prince Andrew of Britain was served with a lawsuit filed by an American woman who accuses him of having sex with her when she was underage, during the same time she also was being abused by his friend Jeffrey Epstein, a new court filing revealed Friday.

Andrew, who is the Duke of York, was served with the civil suit filed by Virginia Giuffre on Aug. 27 in England, according to that filing in Manhattan federal court.

The document, an affidavit by a process server engaged by Giuffre's legal team, says the suit was left with a police officer on duty at the gates of the Royal Lodge in Windsor, a property occupied by Andrew.

The affidavit said that when the process server tried to give Andrew the lawsuit a day earlier, a police officer told him that "security there had been instructed not to allow anyone" onto the grounds thee to serve the prince with the suit, or to accept service on his behalf.

On Aug. 27, the process server wrote that he was told that the suit could be left with a police officer at the Royal Lodge "and that this matter would then be forwarded on to the Legal Team."

A spokesperson for Andrew declined to comment.

The prince, who is the son of Queen Elizabeth, has denied Giuffre's allegations and says he does not recall even ever meeting her.

Andrew had been a friend of Epstein's for years.

Epstein, who also previously had been a friend of former Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton, died in August 2019 in a Manhattan federal jail cell from what has officially been ruled a suicide by hanging.
