She could now have her day in court, but the case could also be settled with an out of court settlement.
Ms Giuffre said this week she will “continue to expose the truth”.
The accusations and subsequent civil case has caused concerns of reputational damage to the Royal Family.
It could also impact the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations due to take place later this year.
Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers told the Pod Save The Queen podcast last week that Andrew will be nowhere near the celebrations.
He said: “His reputation is absolutely in the gutter. He must be the only person on this planet who believes he has a chance of returning to frontline duties.
“From speaking to people close to him, he still believes there is a way back.
“At 61 years old, having had this rumble on for years, it would be absolutely extraordinary for him to have any way back.
“We are certainly not going to be seeing him anywhere near the Platinum Jubilee celebrations over the next 12 months.
“Where does he go from here? It will be a lonely place for him at the moment because there are very few allies in his corner.
“Certainly his family are sticking by him. The Palace have seemed to have distanced themselves from him for many months ‒ he was thrown out of his office in Buckingham Palace and then he has been left to fend for himself with his own legal representation.”
On this week’s episode of the podcast, Mr Myers added that the situation has gone from “bad to worse” for Andrew.
He said: “It’s gone from bad to worse for Andrew. His team are trying to fight the prospect of going to trial which seems extraordinary given we have been through this long-winded civil trial, the whole case surrounding his excuses at Newsnight, his wall of silence he has put up for the last two years.
“Now here we find ourselves in this situation, that the judge has decided he must face this trial.”
Buckingham Palace recently revealed the programme of events marking 70 years of the Queen’s reign.
Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee will include performances by some of the world’s biggest names, as well as the Queen opening up some of her private estates to the public.
Instead, it is believed that other members of the Royal Family will take on many of the duties in her place, including Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess Of Cornwall.
Mr Myers described the timing of Andrew’s scandal before the Platinum Jubilee as a “truly horrifying situation” for the Queen.
