Prince Andrew has had to return his royal patronage and military titles to the Queen. The palace announced this on Thursday evening. A day later, his brother appeared in public, but he didn’t want to talk about it.

The British royal family has stripped Prince Andrew of his military titles. However, his older brother, Prince Charles, apparently does not want to comment. During a visit to Aberdeenshire, Scotland, the 73-year-old Royal ignored at least one question about his brother.

Instead of responding to the question, the Queen’s son didn’t look at the journalist, instead approaching someone else and shaking the person’s hand, a recording of “Sky News” shows.

On January 13, Buckingham Palace announced that Prince Andrew had announced his “military affiliations and royal patronage […] returned to the Queen”. In addition, he would continue to take no public duties and defend himself as a “private citizen” in the Virginia Giuffre case.

The 38-year-old accuses Prince Andrew of sexually abusing her when she was a minor. He categorically denies the allegations. The allegations came up in 2015, again in 2019. In 2020, Andrew wanted to cleanse himself with an ultimately fateful interview. A US court recently ruled not to dismiss her lawsuit. The civil trial is expected to take place in the fall if an out-of-court settlement is not reached before then.

The fact that the Queen has now stripped her second eldest son of his military title was to be expected, explains Anna Whitelock, professor and historian specializing in the history of the British monarchy, when asked by t-online: “With all the complications and repeated denials from Prince Andrew, this is an unprecedented scandal for the royal family.” According to the aristocratic expert, the Queen acted “decisively” “similarly quickly and mercilessly” to the Megxit.
