Among the other actions taken by the queen, the Duke of York will no longer use "His Royal Highness" in any official capacity, Buckingham Palace announced.

Andrew is facing a civil trial for sexual assault in the U.S., after a judge ruled on Wednesday the case could go ahead. He denies all charges.

His accuser, Virginia Giuffre, claims she was trafficked to have sex with the queen’s second son when she was 17 and a minor under U.S. law.






 ;D  They're going after these priviliged Mike Bradys with a vengance...GOOD!

:nod:......the Brits don't F around with this stuff.  When Harry decided he and Meghan wanted to haul a.z.z away from the royal family, he was stunned and hurt to learn that he would have to relinquish all of those ceremonial military titles.

Guys, no matter WHAT you may think of Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family, anyone who has studied this woman over the years is not at all surprised by this move against Andrew.  Dude is reputed to be her "favorite" child, but he's also extremely arrogant and stupid.  He sealed his fate when he was observed paling around with Jeffrey Epstein AFTER dude had served time in the Palm Beach County, FL, jail for messing around with those young gals.  Andrew should have acted like he NEVER heard of dude after his release.

Anyway, the queen celebrates 70 years on the throne this year.  She is ALSO about preservation, in this case the institution of the British monarchy.  Elizabeth is not going to let ANYONE F all of that up, including her beloved son.

Bye-bye Andy.

Is it true that her youngest son goes as Edward Winsor and not  Prince Edward? Is that not indeed her son?

^^^the family’s name is “Windsor”. I think he does use his family name of Windsor in professional settings, but I believe he also uses Duke (Count?) of Wessex. Anne, the Queen’s second oldest child and only daughter, did not accept her mother’s offer of royal titles for her children at their birth. Her children use their father‘s last name of “Phillips”. And he is not to be confused with Anne’s second and current husband whose name escapes me right now.  :lol:
