Prince Andrew‘s lawyers have admitted he has no documents to support claim that he has the ‘inability to sweat’, and there are also no witnesses to confirm he was in Pizza Express on night he’s accused of having sex with Virginia Giuffre.
The Duke of York infamously claimed in his car-crash Newsnight interview with Emily Maitlis in 2019 that a medical condition after being shot at during the Falklands War left him unable to perspire.
However, Ms Giuffre, who was 17 at the time, claimed that they danced together in a London nightclub and he had been ‘sweating profusely’. 
Andrew vehemently denies her assertions and says he cannot recall meeting her, despite the picture of them together at the London home of Ghislaine Maxwell – the British socialite convicted of multiple counts of child sex trafficking for her billionaire paedophile boyfriend Jeffrey Epstein – in March 2001.

Furthermore, the Duke revealed he was also unable to put forward any witnesses to corroborate his claim that he was at Pizza Express in Woking (pictured) on the night it’s alleged he slept with Miss Giuffre
Lawyers for Ms Giuffre want the court to order him to hand over proof about his ‘alleged medical condition of anhidrosis’.
But his legal team said ‘no documents exist in his possession, custody or control’ to back the claim.   
Furthermore, the Duke revealed he was also unable to put forward any witnesses to corroborate his claim that he was at Pizza Express in Woking on the night it’s alleged he slept with Miss Giuffre.
He said it could not have happened because he spent the day with his daughter.
‘I was with the children and I’d taken Beatrice to a Pizza Express in Woking for a party at, I suppose, sort of 4pm or 5pm in the afternoon,’ he said. 
When asked why he would remember a meal at Pizza Express 18 years later, he said: ‘Because going to Pizza Express in Woking is an unusual thing for me to do, a very unusual thing for me to do … I’ve only been to Woking a couple of times and I remember it weirdly distinctly.
‘As soon as somebody reminded me of it, I went, ‘Oh yes, I remember that’.
It comes after it emerged that Ms Giuffre could be set to give a victim impact statement to a New York judge for the sentencing of Ghislaine Maxwell
Although a number of accusers did not give evidence at the trial, the women, including Ms Giuffre, will instead be given the chance to make a statement to Judge Alison Nathan, according to the Telegraph. 
Victim impact statements are testimonies presented to the court which outline the effects of an offender’s actions. 
While guidelines and reports are what are primarily used to determine the length of sentence, a judge should also consider victim impact statements.
Sigrid McCawley, who represents Ms Giuffre, told the paper: ‘At the sentencing, I anticipate that there will be a lot of testimony from many, many other women who were not able to be heard at the trial, who will come forward and bring information about their suffering at the hands of Ghislaine Maxwell.
‘I believe this will be considered by the court before Judge Nathan renders her decision on the length of time Ghislaine will serve behind bars.’
