Queen told to strip Prince Andrew of all military titles as ‘his position in Britain’s armed forces is now untenable’

The Queen has been told to strip her son Prince Andrew of all military titles by more than 150 furious veterans of the armed forces.

The Campaign group Republic today issued a letter signed by 152 military veterans to strip him of his titles as “his position in Britain’s armed forces is now untenable.”

The letter read, “We understand that he is your son, but we write to you in your capacity as head of state and as Commander-in-Chief of the Army, Navy and Air Force.

“These steps could have been taken at any time in the past 11 years. Please do not leave it any longer.”

The letter added that on Wednesday a judge in the US ruled that Prince Andrew’s civil sex case will proceed with a court date to be set for this year.

The letter continues, they want this action to be completed “regardless of the result of Virginia Giuffre’s civil case” against him.

“His position in Britain’s armed forces is now untenable,” they added.

Virginia Giuffre, 39, is suing Prince Andrew for an undisclosed sum over claims that he had sexually abused him, a claim that he vehemently denies.

Giuffre’s lawsuit claims that Prince Andrew had sex with her on three occasions in 2001 when she was a teenager.
