Delphine DE FREITAS –
don’t call her anymore “His Royal Highness”. Like his nephew Harry before him, Prince Andrew lost the right to use this title. A major decision that he learned from his mother Elizabeth II during a private meeting this Thursday, January 13.
“With the Queen’s consent and approval, the Duke of York’s military affiliations and royal patronages have been returned to the Queen”, specifies a terse press release from Buckingham Palace published at the end of the day.
It’s a marathon, not a sprint. The Duke will continue to defend himself against these charges
“The Duke of York will continue not to hold public office and defends himself in this matter as a private citizen”, continues the short text of the palace. Andrew had already ceased all official representation on behalf of the Windsors in the fall of 2019, following a disastrous interview given to the BBC about his links with Jeffrey Epstein.
Mute after the New York judge’s decision on Wednesday, the prince’s lawyers finally reacted on Thursday. “It’s a marathon, not a sprint. The Duke will continue to defend himself against these charges”, they assure. What to pursue a new British-American soap opera which the royal family does not really want to hear about.
