UK: Prince Andrew stripped of royal patronages and military affiliations as sex abuse lawsuit moves ahead

Source: CBS News

“Britain’s Prince Andrew has been stripped of royal patronages and military affiliations — with the queen’s approval — a day after a U.S. district judge rejected his motion to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Virginia Giuffre that alleges he sexually abused her when she was 17. ‘The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen,’ a Buckingham Palace spokesperson said Thursday. All of his roles have been handed back to Queen Elizabeth and will be redistributed to other members of the royal family, according to a royal source. He also will no longer be using ‘His Royal Highness’ in any official capacities.” (01/13/22)
