Queen Elizabeth Strips Prince Andrew Of Military, Royal Titles Amid Sexual Assault Lawsuit

Queen Elizabeth has stripped Prince Andrew of all his military titles and royal patronages amid the latest news that he could face trial based on the latest ruling in the civil case which is being brought against him by Virginia Giuffre.

Buckingham Palace released a statement confirming the news 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 Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.”

Prince Andrew’s attempt to have a sexual assault lawsuit against him thrown out was rejected on Wednesday after the U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan refused to grant the royal’s bid to dismiss a federal lawsuit brought by Virginia Giuffre, a woman who alleges that he sexually abused her when she was a minor, according to court docs obtained by Access Hollywood.
