Ok, I’ll admit something right out of the gate: I don’t understand the “Royal Family” nor do I much care about them.
But this sounds like a big deal.
Prince Andrew just got stripped by the Queen of all of his Royal and Military Titles and will no longer be called “His Royal Highness.”
It is unclear if he will also lose all economic support, but the Royal Throne appears to want nothing to do with this “Royal Pervert” (alllllegedly, almost certainly, nearly positively, a pervert…).
Take a look:

Here are more details from Fox News:
Prince Andrew’s military affiliations and royal patronages are being returned to Queen Elizabeth II at her behest in the wake of his ongoing legal battle with Jeffrey Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
On Thursday, Buckingham Palace confirmed in a statement on Twitter that the Queen agreed to accept the returned accolades.
“The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen,” the statement reads.
On Wednesday, a judge refused to dismiss a lawsuit against the British prince by the American woman who said he sexually abused her when she was 17.

Does this mean he won’t get to wear all his funny little outfits anymore?
According to the NY Post, it does:
Andrew’s monarch mom had already barred her middle son from performing royal duties amid the severe backlash sparked by his disastrous 2019 BBC interview justifying his friendship with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and now-convicted madam Ghislaine Maxwell.
The prince, a former Royal Navy helicopter pilot who flew in the 1982 Falklands War, initially retained his military titles.
They included vice admiral of the Royal Navy and honorary colonel of the Grenadier Guards, the stoic soldiers famed for guarding Buckingham Palace in their distinctive bearskin hats and red tunics.
The Queen’s decision Thursday followed mounting calls for Andrew to finally lose those titles.

This week, more than 150 veterans signed an open letter calling for the move, saying he had brought the armed services he represented into disrepute.
“We understand that he is your son, but … please do not leave it any longer,” the letter urged the Queen, who is head of the British armed forces.
“All of us have served our country and are proud to have done so. For that reason, we are particularly upset and angry that Prince Andrew remains a member of the armed forces and continues to hold military titles,” the veterans wrote.
