Out-of-court settlement in civil case means Duke of York is spared giving evidence at trial
So, Andrew settled out of court for an unknown some, but it is assumed to be in the region of £10-£12 million, with his mom, The Queen, reputed to have contributed around £2 million to the total.
Now should that be the end of it, we will have to wait and see. But Andrew as lost a lot in this and I believe rightly so, for in the least he showed that his judgement is far from what it should be and placed much worry on The Queen in the year which should be a major celebration for her and heaped more on her than should have been after her loss of her husband, Prince Philip.
Andrew by his actions and many inactions as shown he should not and never be in a position of trust and privilege again and should in all reality have any existing titles removed, especially being Duke of York.
He needs to continue to be out of the limelight forever, for who knows what other murky secrets could still be there waiting to be unearthed.
