The Royal Family removed Prince Andrew’s military links and royal patronages on Thursday and said he will no longer be known as “His Royal Highness”, as the son of Queen Elizabeth fights a US lawsuit in which he is accused of sex abuse. His honorary military titles included Honorary air commodore of RAF Lossiemouth. Colonel-in-chief of the Royal Irish Regiment. Colonel-in-chief of the Small Arms School Corps. Colonel-in-chief of The Royal Lancers (Queen Elizabeth’s Own)
The queen’s grandson Prince Harry and his American wife Meghan quit royal duties to forge new careers in Los Angeles, later accusing the royal household of racism.
They, too, were stripped of all their patronages, the ‘His and Her Royal Highness’ titles, and Harry also lost his prized military roles. Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington in Suffolk, Commodore-in-Chief, Small Ships and Diving, Royal Naval Command, and Captain-General of the Royal Marines,
These are called royal patronages. The Queen gives them to her sons and grandchildren for no reason other than they are her sons and grandchildren and they are worth millions allowing these pampered children to live lifestyles well beyond their talents and abilities.
They have also enabled Andrew to live the indulgent lifestyle that is now coming to light. It has done immense reputational damage to the royal family and which would not have been possible without the resources that Andrew had bestowed on him by his indulgent mother.
