Prince Andrew, also known as the Duke of York, yielded royal patronage and military titles to the Queen while a sexual assault case against him is still pending.
Buckingham palace reported this and further stated that the 61-year-old prince would also have to give up the use of the “His Royal Highness” title.
The prince denied the sexual assault allegations charged against him and one of the people close to the prince disclosed that the prince would not stop defending himself amid the persistence of this case.
Buckingham Palace reported that the titles were stripped off the prince with the due permission of the Queen.
The prince will henceforth be disallowed from implementing public duties and will be battling this lawsuit as a private citizen of the United Kingdom.
According to the source, this meant that his initial roles as a royal member would be shared among other family members linked to the Royal Family.
Although, as Harry and Megan, the HRH title can be used on the 61-year-old prince, there is no permission for its usage during official moments.
The spokesperson for the Military stated there was no comment they had regarding the military titles being retrieved by the Queen.
According to BBC News, a petition signed by more than 150 RAF, Royal Navy and Army veterans requested that the prince be removed from all royal titles.
The only military personnel that has openly voiced his welcoming the idea of the prince being stripped of his royal title is Lieutenant Stuart Hunt.
The Lieutenant stated that whether or not the prince was guilty of this allegation is not the matter, but that his image at present was not fit to hold any military title.
