Prince Andrew ‘worried’ keeps one of his military titles

According to reports, the Prince Andrew holding on to one of his military titles because he has been deeply distraught over the fallout from sexual abuse allegations against him, which resulted in a massive legal settlement and his expulsion from the royal family, a source told The New York Times.

“It’s down, it’s broken. If he wants to dress up in a naval uniform from time to time, let him,” a source told the outlet. “His reputation is in tatters, his public life is over. He is a walking disgrace. “

Andrew vehemently denied the accusations of Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claimed that pedophile Jeffrey Epstein forced her to have “disgusting” sex with royalty three times, starting in 2001 when she was just 17 years old. The royals recently reached a $12 million settlement in the case.

“He served in the Royal Navy in the Falklands War and this was awarded to him by the Queen,” the source told the Mirror about the rank of vice-admiral. “It is effectively the same as an honorary title.”

In January last year, Queen Elizabeth II of England stripped Andrew of his military titles and changed his profile on the family’s website. The Crown decided that although he still holds the title of Duke of York, he will no longer be recognized as ‘His Royal Highness’ from him, so the prince faced the legal process as a private citizen.
