Britain’s Prince Andrew loses military titles
The UK’s Buckingham Palace has announced that Prince Andrew’s “military affiliations and Royal patronages” were returned to the queen as he faces a sex abuse civil lawsuit in the US linked to late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The announcement was made by the Palace in a brief statement on Thursday.
“With The Queen’s approval and agreement, The Duke of York’s military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to The Queen,” the statement reads.
“The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.”
