If Prince Andrew goes on trial for sexual assault, Duchess Meghan is among the figures who could get dragged into the case.
That's according to the lawyer representing Epstein survivor and Prince Andrew accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Her legal team is eyeing royals to potentially testify — and they somewhat surprisingly view Meghan as an option.
Meghan to testify in Prince Andrew sexual assault lawsuit?
David Boies, Roberts Giuffre's lawyer, spoke out to the Daily Beast about getting Meghan involved if they go to trial.
He said that Meghan could have "important knowledge" about Prince Andrew, and he explained why she would make a good witness.
The lawyer started by noting the Duchess lives in the United States, where the lawsuit was filed, so they "have jurisdiction over her."
He then described Meghan as a former "close associate of Prince Andrew," adding that she was "in a position to perhaps have seen what he did, and perhaps if not to have seen what he did, to have heard people talk about it."
Boies concluded that Meghan is "somebody who we can count on to tell the truth." But he added that they "haven't made a decision yet" on witnesses.
The lawyer said that other possibilities could include "his ex-wife" and "his brother," referencing Sarah Ferguson and presumably Prince Charles (or Prince Edward).
Why Meghan and not her husband Prince Harry, for example, is a little unclear, but the Duchess of Sussex was a working royal along with Prince Andrew for about a year.
Since Roberts Giuffre filed a sexual assault lawsuit against Prince Andrew in August, the royal's legal team has been working to get the lawsuit dismissed.
The Duke of York has always denied the allegation that he sexually abused Giuffre when she was underage and a victim of Jeffrey Epstein's child sex trafficking ring.
He also said he doesn't remember meeting Giuffre, although an infamous photo shows the Prince with his arm around her waist next to Ghislaine Maxwell — who's currently facing her own trial for sexual abuse.
According to the Daily Mail, a judge in New York will determine on Jan. 4 if the lawsuit against Prince Andrew will go to trial.
