Witness who claims she saw Prince Andrew dancing with his sex accuser Virginia Roberts in Tramp nightclub on night he insists he was in Pizza Express ‘will testify in court’
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.’

Queen (In other words The People) ‘to foot part of Andrew’s £12m bill’: Humiliated Duke’s mother (The People) ‘helps pay settlement with rape accuser Virginia Roberts’ in bid to draw line under scandal before Jubilee celebrations – which he ‘will be BANNED from attending’
The Queen is to foot part of the bill for Prince Andrew’s sexual abuse lawsuit, which could end up costing some £12 million, reports claimed tonight.
The humiliated Duke of York’s mother is said to be set to help fund the settlement, which was agreed between lawyers in a sensational development on Tuesday.
The move is understood to be a bid to draw a line under the scandal before her much-anticipated Jubilee celebrations latter this year, which he will apparently be banned from attending.
It comes just weeks after Andrew vowed to contest Virginia Roberts’ rape claims at a public trial. Miss Roberts had alleged she was forced to have sex with the duke three times when she was 17 under the orders of the late paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Only last month, she was given the go-ahead to sue Andrew, 61, for unspecified damages in a New York civil court.
But despite vowing to fight the allegations and repeatedly protesting his innocence, the prince yesterday agreed to pay a huge sum to settle the case before it ever reaches a jury.
It comes as reports suggest the Queen herself will provide money to pay for the settlement, according to the Telegraph.
The paper suggests the total amount that the victim and her charity will receive will actually exceed £12m, with the funds coming from her private Duchy of Lancaster estate, which recently increased by £1.5m to more than £23m.

NDA (No Debate on Andrew): MPs blocked from investigating whether public money was used to fund Duke of York’s £12m settlement by ancient custom barring discussion of royals in Parliament
Prince Andrew’s multi-million pound out-of-court settlement with his accuser Virginia Roberts cannot be probed by MPs due to an ancient custom barring the discussion of royals in Parliament.
The Duke of York is believed to be facing a legal bill of up to £12 million following his out-of-court agreement with Ms Roberts, who was suing the Queen’s son in New York for alleged sexual abuse after she claims she was trafficked by his friend and convicted sex offender Jeffery Epstein. Prince Andrew vehemently denied these claims.
Questions remain over whether the monarch – who is said to favour Andrew – is helping him foot the bill, which includes a £2million donation to Ms Giuffre’s charity, which helps victims of sexual assault and trafficking.
However, an ancient rule means that MPs are restricted from discussing royalty in the Commons and therefore Prince Andrew’s settlement can’t be questioned.
Meanwhile, Labour MP for Middlesborough Andy McDonald has demanded that a minister comes to the House to reveal if any taxpayer money from the Sovereign Grant – cash paid to the royals from the public – was used to pay off 38-year-old Ms Roberts, according to The Sun.
