I just wondering why the papers need to be 'served' personally in this day and age. Why not use register post - Prince Andrew c/o Balmoral, Scotland would find him.

Prince Andrew bolts for Balmoral in bid to avoid being served sex assault papers

What happens if he never comes out of Balmoral?


I reply:

The short answer is, they usually don't. I don't know New York law, but under California law service can be effected in a variety of ways. Since Andrew is a citizen of the United Kingdom, I'm pretty sure he can be served using the Hague Convention. I don't know whether his status as a royal affects that. --Bob
