PRINCE Andrew was today seen for the first time since settling his sex abuse lawsuit with Virginia Giuffre.

The disgraced Duke of York was seen driving his Range Rover through Windsor this morning – almost a month after he was spared a humiliating court battle.

Andrew, 62, was on a collision course with Ms Giuffre over claims he raped and abused her when she was 17.

He had faced a gruelling legal clash which will now never take place after the case was settled financially.

The duke has vehemently denied all claims against him and the sum of money agreed between the two parties may never be released.

It is believed, however, to be as much as £12million.

Andrew, who has not been seen since, was seen driving from his Royal Lodge home to visit the Queen at Windsor Castle this morning.

His visit is understood to have lasted an hour.

US attorney David Boies, who represents Ms Giuffre, said in the filing in a Manhattan federal court that lawyers on both sides were informing the judge that they had agreed a settlement in principle.

And he added they will request a dismissal of the lawsuit within a month.

Meanwhile, the letter said that the judge should suspend all deadlines and hold the action in abeyance.

The American accused the Duke of sexually abusing her when she was 17 while she traveled with Andrew’s paedo pals Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell.

Court documents show the Duke will make a “substantial donation to Ms Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights”.

Andrew has also pledged to “demonstrate his regret for his association with Epstein” by supporting the “fight against the evils of sex trafficking, and by supporting its victims.”
