Prince Andrew loses military affiliations, royal patronages amid sex abuse lawsuit

Prince Andrew has renounced his military affiliations and royal patronages, Buckingham Palace mentioned on Thursday.

The move comes after Andrew’s attorneys failed to convince a U.S. judge to brush aside a civil lawsuit in opposition to him that accuses him of sexual abuse.

“With the Queen’s approval and settlement, the Duke of York’s army affiliations and royal patronages have been again to the Queen,” Buckingham Palace stated in an announcement.

“The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public tasks and is defending this situation as a personal citizen.”

A royal source said Andrew could not use the title “His Royal Highness”┬áin any authentic capability and his different roles can be distributed amongst other contributors of the Royal Family. They Might not return to Prince Andrew.
