British Queen Elizabeth II withdrew military titles and royal patronage from her second son, Prince Andrew , at his request, after a US judge authorized the continuation of a civil lawsuit for sexual assault against him.

According to The Guardian newspaper, Andrew will no longer use the “His Royal Highness” distinction and Buckingham Palace reported that “ the Duke of York will continue to hold no public office and is defending himself in this case as a private citizen.”

Before, 100 military veterans had sent a letter to the Queen asking her to remove Andrew from his honorary military posts.

This week, a Manhattan judge rejected a request by Andrew to dismiss a sexual assault lawsuit filed by US attorney Virginia Giuffre of 13 years, against him.

She claims to have been a victim of sex trafficking by financier Jeffrey Epstein and forced to have sex with powerful people, including Andrew, when she was 01 years old. The Duke denies the accusations.
