• Prince Andrew is facing a sexual assault lawsuit
  • Still, he is expected to attend a new royal event
  • It's a memorial service for Prince Philip in March

The Royal Family is expected to welcome Prince Andrew to an important event next month despite his ongoing scandal.

Ahead of his sexual assault lawsuit, Prince Andrew was stripped of royal connections and use of the HRH style. In a statement, Queen Elizabeth even said her son would cease "public duties," but it appears an exception will be made.

Royal Family will let Prince Andrew mourn Prince Philip

Despite his legal troubles, Prince Andrew will apparently show his face at a memorial for his late father Prince Philip next month.

Prince Andrew is "expected" to join his family during the service, an insider has told The Sun. It will be held at Westminster Abbey on March 28.

Also interesting:

For Prince Andrew, the memorial will come just days after he is interviewed under oath about accusations of sexual assault on a victim of child sex trafficking.

He has always denied the allegations, but accuser Virginia Giuffre will now get her day in court.
