- Prince Andrew will be back next week
- He'll attend a Prince Philip memorial service
- It is his first appearance since his sex case
Prince Andrew hasn't appeared at a public event in nearly a year. But that's about to change.
The royal, 62, recently settled his sex case out of court for reported millions. In spite of that, he's all set to make a new appearance. The Royal Family will attend a memorial for Prince Philip next week, and Prince Andrew is expected to be there.
Prince Andrew's return revealed
On Tuesday, March 29, the royals will head to Westminster Abbey for a service in memory of Prince Philip. Prince Andrew will attend, according to Hello! and the Daily Mail.
So, Prince Andrew will join his relatives as they honour the life of his father Prince Philip, who died at the age of 99 last year. The funeral in April 2021 was the last time we saw Prince Andrew at a major event.
Prince Andrew has been shunned from royal life since early 2020, after his poorly received BBC interview on Jeffrey Epstein and the sex allegations against him.
Things recently got worse for Prince Andrew as he faced a sexual assault lawsuit from his accuser Virginia Giuffre. She said the royal abused her three times while she was a victim of Epstein's child sex trafficking ring.
Prince Andrew ended up settling the case out of court. He admitted to no wrongdoing on Giuffre's allegations, but the expensive settlement also failed to clear his name.
The disgraced royal was expected to attend the Prince Philip memorial even before he settled his lawsuit. The guest list for the event isn't fully known, but Prince Harry won't be able to make it.
