Prince Andrew ‘on collision course with Palace’ after demanding trial by jury.

PRINCE Andrew is "on a collision course with the palace" after he sensationally demanded a trial by jury overnight in his battle against sex abuse claims, a source has said.

Court documents from New York show the royal denies all of the allegations against him and "hereby demands a trial by jury on all causes of action asserted in the complaint".

It's the first time Andrew, 62, who has been stripped of his royal titles by the Queen, has publicly vowed to fight the case in court.

The Duke will also no longer be able to use 'His Royal Highness' - and will face his US lawsuit as a "private citizen" meaning he can't hide behind royal privileges.

A source told Mail Online: "Andrew is on collision course with the Palace over this."

Meanwhile other sources close to the Prince say he is now preparing to give a seven-hour witness statement to lawyers by video call.
