The Queen agreed to approve the return of Prince Andrew’s military affiliations and royal patronages, according to a statement from Royal Communications on Thursday. The statement added that he will no longer use “His Royal Highness” in any official capacity, his royal roles will be distributed among the family and he will continue his ongoing sexual assault case “as a private citizen.”
The Royal Family removed Prince Andrew’s military titles and royal patronages and said he will no longer be known as ‘His Royal Highness,’ as the son of Queen Elizabeth fights a U.S. lawsuit in which he is accused of sex abuse.
Buckingham Palace’s announcement about Prince Andrew came after extensive discussions within the royal family, according to people with ties to the palace. It was designed to head off an effort by Andrew to rehabilitate himself, according to one person.
What people are saying?
Hopeful Innocent until proven guilty? Not in the Royal Family. Ok, so Queen Elizabeth knows more than we think. I can only guess she knows all about her son’s exploits over the years. She’s his mother. She must know his character.
nikki gooch Royal Family is shameful. The way the treat Harry and his family. No back bone. No desire to step up at all and set the record straight. They allow the UK media to put whatever spin they want on their relationships. Kate and Will should be brave enough to make things right.
