A BILLBOARD has appeared outside an Edinburgh Asda showing a picture of Prince Andrew with the words “no one is above the law”.

It comes as the Prince was allegedly served legal papers by lawyers of the woman suing him over sexual assault allegations.

The lawyers, representing Virginia Giuffre, say in the document that the civil lawsuit was handed to a Metropolitan Police officer who was on duty at the main gates of The Royal Lodge, Windsor Great Park, on August 27 at 9.30am.

The filing says that this is “consistent with the provisions for service upon an individual defendant, under Section 6 of the Civil Procedure Rules, as required by the Supreme Court of Judicature in England & Wales”.

Giuffre has sued the Queen’s son for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was a teenager.

She claims she was trafficked by Andrew’s former friend and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with the duke when she was aged 17 and a minor under US law.

Now 38, she claims that she was forced to have sex with the prince on three separate occasions.

The first was at the London townhouse of Ghislaine Maxwell, a close associate of Epstein.

The second was at Epstein's New York mansion, and the third was on Epstein's private Caribbean island, according to Giuffre.

Andrew has vehemently denied all the allegations.

Now the anti-monarchy group Republic has plastered two billboards at an Asda at the Jewel.

The two billboards show the Duke of York’s face, both with a black background, with white text on one that reads “wanted: a democratic alternative to the monarchy” and another that says “no one should be above the law”.

A picture of the billboards appeared on social media with the person applauding the campaign, adding the hashtag “#EndTheMonarchy”.

It was thought the Duke had travelled to Scotland to avoid being served the papers, but the US lawyers claim that would mean he received them before crossing the Border.

Buckingham Palace refused to comment.
