It’s the final humiliation.
Prince Andrew’s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, as well as their daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, could be called for deposition in his sex-assault lawsuit, The Post is told by legal sources.
Others from Buckingham Palace, potentially including other royals and staff members, could also be called for the civil suit, which will take place in New York City.
The Duke of York is still reeling after being stripped of his military titles and His Royal Highness styling by his mother, Queen Elizabeth, on Thursday.
Attorneys for both Andrew and Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims she was forced to sleep with the Duke three times when she was 17, have a deadline of late Friday to send over the names of people they want to question in the case.
Andrew, 61, insists that he will continue to fight the claims, which he denies, and does not want to settle.
He has already embroiled Beatrice, 33, in the case by claiming in a disastrous 2019 BBC interview that he could not possibly have been at a London club with Giuffre — as she claims — because he had taken his older daughter to a birthday party at a Pizza Express restaurant in Woking, Surrey, at that time.
Beatrice, who gave birth to daughter Sienna Elizabeth in September, was pictured looking downcast as she strolled with her baby in London Thursday — hours after her the fate of her father’s titles was announced by the palace.
Meanwhile, Prince Charles brushed off questions about his exiled brother Friday while on a trip to Scotland.
The heir to the throne refused to speak about the crisis engulfing the Windsors after federal judge Lewis Kaplan refused Andrew’s request to throw out Giuffre’s lawsuit and said it would proceed to trial.
Charles was asked by a reporter about the scandal while visiting the Haddo Country Park in Aberdeenshire.
But the senior royal — who is said to have played a key part in the decision to strip his brother of his military titles, patronages and use of the HRH title — would not be drawn in, instead continuing to speak to individuals impacted by Storm Arwen in late November.
Giuffre’s attorney, David Boies, has already stressed that those he would seek to question “might include [Andre’s] ex-wife” and possibly even Charles.
As The Post has reported, Sarah Ferguson is one of her ex-husband’s biggest supporters and has been part of his defense team, sitting in on meetings with his lawyers.
Reps for the royal family declined to comment.
