The Queen has revoked Prince Andrew’s titles in an unprecedented move by the Royal family.

This comes after the Royal family has been under increasing pressure to distance themselves from Andrew.

The Duke of York, The Queen’s second son and second in line to the throne, is facing a sexual abuse lawsuit by Virginia Louise Giuffre — a victim of the sex trafficking ring the Jeffrey Epstein.

Giuffre accused the 61-year-old of sexual abuse on three separate occasions when she was 17 — a minor under US law.

Prince Andrew has denied the allegations and said in an infamous interview with the BBC in 2019 that he had no recollection of meeting her.

Andrew had already stepped back from public duties in November 2019 and said in a statement that he regretted his association with Jeffrey Epstein after his suicide.
