The Duke of York's military titles and royal patronages have been returned to the Queen, Buckingham Palace has announced.
Prince Andrew, 61, will stop using the style His Royal Highness in an official capacity, a royal source said.
It comes as he faces a US civil action over sexual assault allegations - claims he has consistently denied.
A source close to him said he would "continue to defend himself" against the case brought by Virginia Giuffre

Wow. Some dude with pretend accolades lost the ability to use those pretend accolades.
Fuck royalty. The UK need to join the 18th century and throw those pieces of shit out.

"Justice served"

Well, at least this guy gets some shame throw at him. Meanwhile all of Epstein's American elite friends cannot even be investigated.

Fucking clown world man.

I believe the royal family does actually serve, Harry flew an Apache in Afghanistan and I believe Charles fought in the Falklands too

They're given honorary roles.

As they are royal.

No chance they'd ever be put in danger.

'Hey Harry! we zoned in and locked the target. Wanna press the button?'

A long haul flight from wherever you are.

This. When I used to work in Windsor sometimes I'd see Harry doing moring horse patrol with his squad out on the streets. Even though he was in a big group of horsebacked soldiers he was still flanked by 2 bodyguards (Also on horses).

The rule of law should apply to everyone but in this fucked up time we're living in the rich get titles removed or interviews and the poor get jailed straight up.

Bill Clinton and the orange nutsack also ran in Epstein's circles. When are they going to be investigated?

Imagine what the old lady must be going through:

1. One of your sons is a sexual degenerate
2. The second one exposed to the whole world how he cheated on his wife and wants to be her ‘sanitary pad’
3. Your grandchild is a wannabe celebrity living in the US with an ex-actress

At the risk of getting political...

The Queen is one of the only decent people currently in the UK with any power. And that's kept in check largely from a sense of duty.

Guess who doesn't have any of that sense of duty...

Now imagine if the UK had a President Farage right now...

Having a royal family actually looks good.

Immunity for politicians and royals must be one of the stupidest things on earth.

Prince Andrew is a prize cunt.

I am glad the Queen and Prince Charles are continuing to throw the trash out.

Someone on Twitter pointed out something I totally agree with:

Three major news stories right now are Boris and the Downing Street parties, Prince Andrew the paedo, and Novax Djokovic.

All three elitist, entitled shitheads, who think the rules don’t apply to them, and can do what they want. Let’s hope it proves to be the undoing of all of them. This is a massive issue in our societies, and really needs addressing.

Majority of the UK are in favour of a monarchy.

We tried getting rid of the monarchy in 1649. It was such a disaster that we restored the monarchy in 1660.

Also, no political discussions. Especially on subjects you don't appear to understand.

Good.

He's an embarrassment to the Queen and the British people.

The “Queen” and Charles are an embarrassment to the people as well for their protection and support of Jimmy Saville for all of those years.
They are no better than Andrew.

Are you suggesting the Royal Family knew about Jimmy Saville and protected him?!?

Extraordinary allegations require extraordinary evidence. Evidence I'm pretty sure you lack.

i quite like the queen but the idea of a king/queen is a bit useless now. they don't have any power. it's all for show and tradition. if the queen could drag boris johnson out of downing street by his scruffy mop then it might be worth it all but if she ever tries interfere with "her" government then she's probably be forced to abdicate or some shit.

the royal family needs to go. if when the queen dies we all decided to scrap the royal family i wouldn't mind a bit.

It wouldn’t take extraordinary evidence to support their protection of Saville when they’ve obviously also shit the bed on handling Andrew’s problems.

They only decided to take his titles *AFTER* a judge recently ruled this month that a case against Andrew could proceed.

Only *AFTER* they realized that more skeletons would be brought out in a court of law outside of their jurisdiction.

Stripping the titles was a distancing maneuver because they care more about their precious image and themselves than they care about doing the right thing.

If it was about doing the right thing, Andrew would’ve been torched YEARS ago.

You make it sound as if there was ever a different time . .

What has this got to do with Jimmy Saville? Show me the Royals knew about Saville and were covering it up. .

What other skeletons do you think the Royals have?

I would hate for there not to be a monarchy. The alternative is a Republic. We tried that before. It failed miserably and within a decade we put Charles II back on the throne.

True, the Queen has very little power, but in all honesty would you want the Royal Family to have power to govern? Personally, if be down for an absolute monarchy, but that's just me.

The Royal Family isn't pointless to me. It cost me pennies, brings in tourism and more importantly, they are intergal to my culture, traditions and national identity.
