An eyewitness who claims she saw Prince Andrew dancing with his alleged sex abuse victim Virginia Giuffre – on the same night he said he was at Pizza Express – will testify in court.
Shukri Walker has reportedly agreed to appear at the upcoming civil case in the US – where she will tell the court that she saw the Duke of York at Tramp nightclub in London back in 2001.
Somali-born Ms Walker, who lives in London, is expected to stand by a written statement she gave to the FBI, in which she said she vividly remembered apologising to the Queen’s son after standing on his foot on the dancefloor, to which she claims he replied: ‘No problem.’
She claims Ms Giuffre – aged 17 at the time – was with Andrew, while the royal says he has ‘no recollection’ of meeting her.
Andrew, 61, is being sued by Ms Giuffre, now 38, in New York over claims he sexually assaulted her on three occasions. Ms Giuffre claims one of the alleged attacks happened the night after she visited the Tramp nightclub with him.
Alleged witness Ms Walker said: ‘He (Andrew) looked like he was having a great time. ‘And he was with this young girl who was close to my own age, perhaps even a bit younger than me. ‘The young woman wasn’t smiling, it was the opposite of smiles.
‘They were with the woman who (had) just been arrested, Ghislaine Maxwell, and Epstein. I will never forget the night because I was told this is a real Prince.’
