PRINCE Andrew has reportedly left the prestigious Naval and Military Club as he continues to withdraw from public life.
He had been a member of the historical consortium – aptly known as In & Out – since rising through the ranks of the Royal Navy.
The change marks a particularly low point for the 62-year-old as his late father Prince Philip had previously served as the club’s president.

But when he went on a collision course with Ms. Giuffre, the duke decided to settle the case financially to avoid a grueling legal battle.
Andrew has vehemently denied any claims against him and the amount of money agreed between the two parties must never be released.
“Well-placed sources” said the post on Sunday He had retired from the Navy Club because he shuns the limelight.
A source said: “The Duke’s name remained on the In & Out’s membership list for several months, even after he stepped down as a member of the royal family, but in recent days his name has disappeared from the books.”
Andrew enjoyed a naval career that spanned two decades and has received continuous promotion after assuming active role.
A number of his royal relatives were members of the Naval and Military Club, which describes itself as a “mixed, eclectic mix” of like-minded individuals from “diverse backgrounds”.
The organization was originally founded in 1862 for “Gentlemen of the British Armed Forces” but now welcomes women and those who have not served.
It takes its name ‘In and Out’ from the engravings on two massive pillars at the front of the building at 94 Piccadilly in London.
Ten years ago, Prince Philip celebrated the club’s 150th anniversary by marching members around St James’s Square.
The Naval and Military Club also commemorated the Duke of Edinburgh last June with a party to commemorate his 100th birthday.
Andrew reportedly severed ties with the closely affiliated sailing club afterwards find the money to pay Ms. Guiffre.
The Queen’s youngest son was sighted for the first time since the March 8 deal Drive through Windsor.
He was seen driving his Range Rover to visit from his home at Royal Lodge the Queen for about an hour.
Court documents show the Duke will make a “significant donation to Ms. Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights.”
Andrew has also vowed to “demonstrate his regret for his association with Epstein” by supporting the “fight against the evils of the sex trade and its victims.”
