Prince Andrew, the third child of Queen Elizabeth II, has been accused of having sex with an under-aged girl.

The woman says that she had sex with Prince Andrew three times; once in London, once in New York and once in the Caribbean. This was between the years of 1999 and 2002. She was under the age of 16 at the time. She says that she was forced to do this; she did not want to have sex with Prince Andrew.

UK law says that it is a crime to have sex with a person under the age of 16.

Prince Andrew says that this is not true. Buckingham Palace has released a statement defending Prince Andrew which says that the allegations are 100% false.
