Prince Andrew Stripped of Royal and Military Titles Amid Sexual Abuse Lawsuit

Queen Elizabeth ain’t playin’!

Prince Andrew was stripped of his military and royal titles Thursday by his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. This comes just one day after a NY judge gave a green light for the sex abuse lawsuit against the disgraced royal to move forward. Andrew, who has a friendship with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and now-convicted Ghislaine Maxwell, is being sued by Virginia Giuffre, who alleges that she was trafficked by Epstein and forced to perform sex acts with the prince at the age of 17. Andrew has vigorously denied Giuffre’s claims.

A royal source revealed that Andrew will no longer use “His Royal Highness” in any official capacity. In addition, his other roles would be distributed among other members of the Royal family, Reuters reported.

“With The Queen’s approval and agreement, The Duke of York’s military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to The Queen,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

“The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.”

The announcement comes after more than 150 veterans signed an open letter calling on the queen to strip Andrew of all his titles and ranks in the armed forces.

“We are particularly upset and angry that Prince Andrew remains a member of the armed forces and continues to hold military titles, positions and ranks, including that of Vice Admiral of the Royal Navy,” the letter said.

“We are therefore asking that you take immediate steps to strip Prince Andrew of all his military ranks and titles and, if necessary, that he be dishonorably discharged.”
