The stripping of Prince Andrew of his military titles and Royal patronages was an unprecedented move by Queen Elizabeth II, ET Canada’s royal commentator Jamie Samhan told Global News on Thursday, saying the Queen had her reputation to defend and had there was no other choice.
Samhan said it was a huge move, especially since it’s said Andrew is one of the Queen’s favourite children, so for her to do this it would have taken a lot of discussion before the move was made.
On Wednesday, Andrew’s lawyers failed to persuade a U.S. judge to dismiss Virginia Giuffre’s civil lawsuit against him.
The following day, more than 150 veterans signed an open letter calling for the Queen to strip her son the prince of his military titles, which Buckingham Palace announced she had done just that. It also said he would not continue to undertake any public duties and would defend the case against him as a private citizen.
