“Brutal” – The Queen distances herself from Prince Andrew

Prince Andrew to face abuse charges

In fact, Prince Andrew’s lawyers wanted to avoid a case of abuse at the last second, but judges rejected the requests. The Queen’s son will face the charges. Unlikely to reach an amicable settlement.

British Prince Andrew faces trial in the United States. The royals want to keep the scandal at bay – preferably as much as possible. This has dramatic consequences for the queen’s son. Only his place in the order of succession remains for the 61-year-old.

AThe British Royal Family is distancing itself from the Queen’s son Prince Andrew amid an increasingly likely process of abuse in the United States. The 61-year-old will defend himself in the threatened process as a private citizen, Buckingham Palace in London announced Thursday evening.

Andrew has had to give up his military ranks and royal patronage, and he will still have no public appearances.

More than 150 British military veterans previously asked Queen Elizabeth II in an open letter to release Prince Andrew from his military duties because he had failed to meet the high expectations of honorable behavior that this entailed.

More of “His Royal Highness”

The 61-year-old should no longer be allowed to use the usual royal greeting “His Royal Highness”, as British media reported, citing privileged sources. Only his place in the line of succession will remain for Andrew – in ninth place, however, unlikely to be realistic.

Prince Andrew’s trial

Complainant Virginia Giuffre accuses the British Prince of sexually assaulting her on several occasions when she was underage twenty years ago. She claims to have already been the victim of a network of abuse set up by the American multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein, friend of Andrew, and his ex-partner Ghislaine Maxwell.

Andrew categorically denies all the allegations. If a friendly settlement is not found, the Royal will go to trial in the United States – presumably this year.

Not a dime of fortune

Always for fear that misery will overshadow the anniversary year of the 95-year-old queen, the palace has now distanced itself as much as possible. Andrew is not supposed to squeeze a dime out of palace assets for the costly legal battle.
