BBC News:- The Duke of York’s military titles and royal patronages have been returned to the Queen, Buckingham Palace has said.

Prince Andrew, 61, will also stop using the style His Royal Highness in an official capacity, a royal source said.

It comes as he faces a US civil action over sexual assault allegations – claims he has consistently denied.

A source close to the duke said he would “continue to defend himself” against the case brought in New York by Virginia Giuffre.

A judge in the city ruled on Wednesday that the case brought by Ms Giuffre could continue, after the prince tried to have it dismissed.

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

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

All Prince Andrew’s roles have been returned to the Queen with immediate effect, and will be redistributed to other members of the Royal Family, a source said.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence said it had no comment about the duke’s military titles being handed back to the Queen, and that it was a matter for the Palace.

On Thursday, a letter – released by anti-monarchy pressure group Republic – was signed by more than 150 Royal Navy, RAF and Army veterans asking the Queen to strip Prince Andrew of his eight British military titles.

  1. All of them Should be Phased out .These Scum women will do anything to Destroy Whether Black or White Men’s Charactor. The case Should be Dismiss at ths Court.How many of them Try to have Bill Cosby Die in Prison .The Truth set him Free.and the Truth Shall always Set a Man free

  2. I don’t understand why the man has to go through all this when the young lady knew exactly what she was getting into. When her friends were busy studying at school she was flying all over the world on private jets, sailing on yachts and eating good food and get all sorts of expensive gifts. Do you think these were for free? Hell no she knew she had to sleep with them and was getting paid for it, her parents got paid to but now all of a sudden lets destroy a life after you enjoyed the consensual joyride with all it’s perks. I think the parents and these women should be jailed along side the men because everyone knew what they were getting into.

  3. @ The most honorable Lucian high-grade, so beautifully articulated. I have qualms with the latter comment as I have no respect for Megan and Harry as well
