Andrew stripped of military and royal trappings

(CNS): Queen Elizabeth II’s second eldest son, Prince Andrew (61), has been stripped of all his military titles and royal trappings as he is left to defend a civil sexual assault case against him as a “private citizen”, Buckingham Palace has announced. “With the Queen’s approval and agreement, the Duke of York’s military affiliations and royal patronage have been returned to the Queen,” palace officials said in a statement Thursday.

Andrew will no longer be known as His Royal Highness. Following news yesterday that a New York judge had cleared the way for a lawsuit alleging he sexually assaulted Virginia Giuffre when she was a teenager, the case will move to discovery, which means that the prince could be forced to sit for a deposition about the allegations.

The prince was a friend of the billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself in jail in 2019. Giuffre claims she was sexually assaulted by the prince when she was just 17 after being introduced to him through Epstein. Given that he will now be defending himself against the allegations, which he has persistently denied, other royals will now pick up the prince’s duties.

Andrew’s efforts to get the case thrown out failed. He had argued that he had been released from liability in future lawsuits under the terms of a settlement Giuffre had reached with Epstein in 2009 in a separate lawsuit in Florida. In that case, Epstein paid Giuffre $500,000 to settle after she had accused Epstein of sexually abusing her when she was a teenager.

Andrew’s connections to Epstein and this civil action continue to haunt the British Royal Family. The advance in the case comes during the Queen’s 70th year on the throne and will cast a shadow over her Platinum Jubilee celebrations this year.

    Working Royal. I have to laugh anytime I hear any of the Royal family talk about how hard they “work” for the people. Dressing up in fascinators and cutting ribbons is working?
    What a load of crap. They try to keep up the appearance that they are “working” for the people, when in reality they’re only “working” so that UK citizens continue to foot the bill to keep the Royals in the lifestyle to which they have grown accustomed.

    This is the real reason why the queen cut Andrew off. You think she gives a crap about the victims of Andrew and Epstein? She’s only trying to save her own ass.

    Could it be that by now all his assets are hidden in British tax heavens overseas territories? designed to even disguise the sharpest assets trackers? At the end of the day is all about money, whether he is guilty or not.

        Multiple bones were found broken in his neck. Injuries more typical of homicide by strangulation. It’s hard to break them all by oneself, just like it would be hard to shoot oneself in the head twice.

      14 @ 1:22pm – I believe that too! Trump called-in a favour from Putin and Russian FSB agents were assigned to keep Epstein quiet. Didn’t want the world to know how much time he really spent with Epstein’s girls.

      I hope Ghislane Maxwell will talk, she’ll have a lot of time to capture their attention!

    The Duke hasn’t been found guilty of anything, yet, he also hasn’t been a working Royal for a couple of years. This could all be a strategic move, probably among all of them, to remove any association – including financial – between the monarchy and this case. They’re limiting their liability because it’s a civil, not a criminal suit. Money is always the elites objective.

      Except their only liability is political. They are cutting him out of the family portraits.

    It’s been reported that his $30m ski chalet is up for sale to pay his legal bills.

      How could this happen to a Brit?

      Sold to cover the legal claim made by the original owner of the chalet which he never paid $6m, despite his $12m mortgage and billions in family wealth.

    Does he still have his title and who will be funding his legal defense?

    anyone who holds the monarchy in high regard… needs psychiatric care.
    they are nothing but a bunch of inbred dimwits who offer little or nothing to public who fund their extravagant lifestyles.
