Prince Andrew must prove he can sweat in the sexual abuse trial against Virginia Giuffre.
Virginia’s attorneys have requested that the Duke of York provide medical evidence of his “alleged medical condition of anhidrosis, hyperhidrosis”.
This came after Andrew refuted prosecutor’s claims in a 2019 interview with the BBC that he worked up a sweat on a dance floor with the victim at a London club in 2001, before Virginia was forced into sexual relations.
He supported his testimony, claiming that an illness prevented him from sweating, but the very next day newspapers published photos of Andrew who was sweating profusely at various times.
Prior to the New York trial, attorneys requested documents describing the Duke of York’s history of travel to and from the Tramp Nightclub and any gifts presented to him by Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein.
