Both Cristiano Ronaldo and Prince Andrew ought to sue for libel. "Believe Kathryn Mayorga" about what, exactly?

Prince Andrew should sue everyone who had called him a paedophile, a paedo, a nonce, or anything in that vein. And Ronaldo should sue the people behind the banner to "Believe Kathryn Mayorga". Believe her about what, exactly?
