Prince Andrew loses military titles and patronages, and will no longer be called HRH



The Duke of York's military titles and royal patronages have been returned to the Queen, Buckingham Palace has announced.
Prince Andrew will stop using the style His Royal Highness in an official capacity, a royal source said.
The duke's roles will be given to other Royal Family members, the source added.

It comes as he faces a civil case in the US over claims he sexually assaulted a woman when she was 17, which he has consistently denied.

Buckingham Palace said in a statement: "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."

All Prince Andrew's roles have been returned to the Queen with immediate effect, and will be redistributed to other members of the Royal Family, a source said.

It comes after a letter signed by more than 150 Royal Navy, RAF and Army veterans asked the Queen to strip Prince Andrew of his eight British military appointments.

The latest announcement means Prince Andrew has lost military titles including Colonel of the Grenadier Guards - one of the most senior infantry regiments in the British Army.

The other British military titles he has lost include:

Honorary air commodore of RAF Lossiemouth
Colonel-in-chief of the Royal Irish Regiment
Colonel-in-chief of the Small Arms School Corps
Commodore-in-Chief of the Fleet Air Arm
Royal colonel of the Royal Highland Fusiliers
Deputy colonel-in-chief of The Royal Lancers (Queen Elizabeths' Own)
Royal colonel of the Royal Regiment of Scotland.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence said it had no comment about the duke's military titles being handed back to the Queen, and that it was a matter for the Palace.

This is just old Lizzie trying to defend her coin. It ain't like she completely is shutting out her son. You best believe she's still paying legal fees. Private citizen my ass. These leeches don't know how to earn a single dime on their own.
While Liz obvs gets public money from the Crown Estate, she also privately owns Sandringham and Balmoral so she has private income too and like there's nothing that can be done to prevent her from spending that money on her gross son's legal fees.
Her taxpayer funded ancestors buying a castle might make it hers legally but I still think at the very least that Sandringham which was purchased with funds from the Duchy of Cornwall should go back to the people. Balmoral is a bit more complicated because technically Albert purchased it. But in my mind it's all the people's because none of their money was ever earned. Albert wasn't doing 9 to 5 in a factory to save up for his Scottish estate.

And how exactly did she earn those castles? With what job? She inherited all her shit, she didn't work a day in her life.

I get your point but it isn't like her father or grandfather worked an actual job to acquire the properties she so proudly displays as her own. Everything that old leech has is thanks to the taxes people pay and we should never forget that.

This.

And what did they really strip from him except ceremonial titles? I mean I'm betting he doesn't do shit military wise. Losing his HRH? Big deal. He's still a duke/prince with his other titles, mommy will still give him money...

I'm rolling my eyes at all of this. The RF are just trying to save their own asses at this point.

His pedo ass needs to be in jail.
You love to see it.
I am also legit shocked because I thought they'd deny it until Lizzie croaked.
some people think she's gone already lol
I legit thought they were waiting to announce after the new year so they wouldn’t have to interrupt the holiday tv programming lolololol
Plot twist: This is all Charles pretending to be the Queen. 😂

And all they did was move away from these toxic people. It took years of Andrew being accused of being a freaking rapist for them to do even the bare minimum. 🙄
exactly. H&M couldnt use their HRH titles, lost police protection, lost their roles in their royal charities and patronages, cut off financially from Charles, left the country, etc. while Andrew still get to stay in a cottage at Windsor for free, still keeping his police protection paid by taxpayers, still gets annual allowance from mommy... losing HRH is nothing compared to what he still has right now
I really didn't think that this would happen until Andrew lost in court.

But I think that Charles and/or William pushed for this to try to mitigate the damage that Andrew is doing to the institution of the monarchy.
You know it's Charles, he can't stand Andrew. He wants to get this done now, so it can start being less of a shock and news item as time goes by.

The timing is interesting tho, because it seems like they know he's guilty and they aren't even waiting for a trial.

off topic, but I just saw the "haunted strawberry leaf tiara" and I had to laugh at that description. Do you know anything about it?
Hm... the only strawberry leaf tiara I can think of off the top of my head is the one Albert designed for Victoria, and I think that one is kicking around in the possession of some descendants of Queen Vic who no longer have any titles or anything? I don't know about any haunted ones!! But now I want to!!

Im not surprised if William and Charles are behind this. William was in hot water recently when his affair was trending on twitter a few weeks ago, then Andrew's lawsuit. Gotta cut their losses while covering up for themselves.
Rot in hell.

Expects us to believe photos of him with the woman he assaulted are photo-shopped fakes LMFAO, like it's some kind of orchestrated conspiracy. Absolute trash.
complete bullshit, that photo's been around for YEARS. i can't remember when i first saw it, but pretty sure it was well before anything like Photoshop was widely available.
Didn't Harry not-so-subtly imply Charles is running the show? Hes been trying to downsize the crowd of working royale so maybe this was his chance?

Also I read that prior to that disastrous sweat glands at the pizza parlor interview mess he had 230 patronagess?!?

Yeah, the royal family is going to drastically change when she dies. She’s going to be the last real, grand monarch. They’re not going to replace her on the stamps or money or any of that.

Charles has been talking about downsizing the “official”RF for some time and I think by the time he comes to power they’re going to be expected to have proper roles where they actually do something close to “work”.

Well that's going to be a good trick because Charles is already 70, beyond retirement age and if he thinks he's going to get William out there doing real work, he's dreaming. William's life seems like a facade to me.

William seems allergic to work. He put it off as long as possible by military service and then flying a helicopter until Charles forced him to begin acting like a royal in public.
Wait how do you know they're not replacing her on currency etc? Is that confirmed?

he used to be pretty consistently top 4 or 5 when it came to engagements after charles, anne and the queen.
Took them long enough. Now assassinate his disgusting ass.
The last beheading in the Tower of London was a long was time ago, but a firing squad took aim in the 1940s. I say we give the ravens a show.
Being pecked to death by ravens would be the pinnacle of symbolic and poetic justice of the demise of the British monarchy that we all deserve

Wow actual consequences whodathunkit. And i though we had to wait on chuck to toss his pedo ass to the cleaners

lol I literally just went on a long rant about that in the last post. I’m still in shock.
peasant!

Muggle!

Jail next please
With the Queen's approval and agreement,

It comes after a letter signed by more than 150 Royal Navy, RAF and Army veterans asked the Queen to strip Prince Andrew of his eight British military appointments.


lol I'm trying to imagine these scenes on whatever season of The Crown 😄
Lolll I can just picture it as one of those montage sequences where they show like 5-10 of the highest-ranking veterans arriving at their offices and then signing it, the letter making its way around the country and then finally being delivered to Buckingham Palace where Elizabeth stares at it once it lands on her desk. (Bonus points if it's an actual letter instead of email.) Your choice as to whether it's the opening montage or the closing montage haha.

Lmao remember when Peter refused to put in the attempted assassination of charles and the kidnapping of Anne in The Crown?

Excuse me : QUOI?!?!?!?!

Now that would’ve been entertainment!!! Instead we got Philip and his ridiculous mid-life crisis and some other shit I can’t remember

Damn I never thought we’d get any budging on his status until there was a settlement or trial. Has he come back from Switzerland or wherever he was? I feel like he’s going to just keep trying to hide.
lol Charles did a good thing? I don't know what to think.
wait, what did he do?
Well, I'm assuming he threw a shitfit about Andrew undermining public approval of the crown before he has a chance to do so, but who knows, maybe Liz was moved to do this on her own
