Britain’s Prince Andrew stripped of royal and military titles over Epstein scandal | DW News

Buckingham Palace said Thursday that Prince Andrew resigned his royal patronages and military titles and will defend himself in a sex abuse case pending against him in the United States as a private citizen.

"With The Queen’s approval and agreement, The Duke of York’s military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to The Queen," a palace statement said.

What precipitated Prince Andrew’s royal demotion?
Earlier Thursday, over 150 UK veterans signed an open letter to Queen Elizabeth requesting that she remove her son Andrew’s military titles.

The British veterans asked that the queen do so as a result of the reputational damage caused by the prince’s association with Jeffrey Epstein, the late financier and prolific sex trafficker and abuser of young women.

Why is Prnce Andrew facing a sex abuse lawsuit?
Virginia Giuffre, an American woman, alleges Epstein trafficked her to Prince Andrew when she was just 17 years old. This month, a US court convicted Epstein’s long-time partner Ghislaine Maxwell on sex trafficking charges.

Prince Andrew had attempted to have her case dismissed on the grounds of a settlement deal she signed with Epstein that saw her receive $500,000 in exchange for an agreement that protected those around him.

BREAKING: Epstein paid $500k to Prince Andrew’s accuser

The woman accusing Prince Andrew of sexual assault agreed not to sue anyone connected to Jeffrey Epstein who could be described as a "potential defendant".

Newly released court documents from 2009 show the billionaire paedophile paid Virginia Giuffre to settle the case and prevent it going to litigation.

But a clause in that agreement is likely to be used by the Duke of York’s team to argue allegations he had sex with Ms Giuffre when she was 17 should not be heard in court.

Ms Giuffre, formerly known as Virginia Roberts, is suing Andrew in a civil lawsuit in New York in which she claims he "committed sexual assault and battery" upon her when she was 17.

He denies the claims.
