Her decision comes less than 24 hours after New York judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that he faces a civil trial over allegations he sexually abused Virginia Giuffre when she was 17. .

Andrew, who vehemently denies the charges, will now face trial as a regular citizen.

A source close to Andrew said he would battle in his civil case with Virginia Giuffre, who claims she was sexually abused when she was 17.

“It’s a marathon, not a sprint, and the Duke will continue to defend himself against these claims,” ​​the source said.

DUKE’S DENIAL

Andrew is seeking an out-of-court settlement for Ms Giuffre. It could be up to £10 million – the amount he will get from the sale of his house in Verbier, Switzerland.

In a statement at 5pm yesterday, Buckingham Palace said: “With the Queen’s approval and consent, the military branches of the Duke of York and the royal patronage rights have been repaid. back to the Queen.

“The Duke of York will continue not to perform any public duties and will defend this case as a private citizen.”

He will no longer be allowed to wear their uniform at the Cenotaph memorials and the upcoming Thanksgiving for his late father Prince Philip.

Andrew, a Navy helicopter pilot during the Falklands War, will still be allowed to wear his medal like any other veteran.

He was also stripped of dozens of royal patronages of golf clubs, universities, yacht clubs, sports associations, medical institutions, charities and arts foundations. .

However, he retains the rank of Vice Admiral of the Navy, given to him in 2015 after he retired in 2001.

One of the Queen’s four children he stays as a State Counselor – so he can replace her if she is unable to perform her duties due to illness or absence from abroad.

Andrew’s Choice

blank

1. Facing the accuser in court

FACE Virginia Giuffre in court, “get tough” and fight to clear her name.
But experts say that strategy carries a high degree of risk, pitting the senior royal against an alleged victim of sexual abuse in the US court system.

Even if Andrew was determined to oppose Ms Giuffre’s claims – which he staunchly denies – the reputational damage could still be huge.

He will most likely be cross-checked via video link on some extremely personal matters – including his sexual preferences.

2. Offer to pay in cash

SET UP and give Virginia Giuffre lots of money to walk away.

Pedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein, a close friend of Andrew, paid Giuffre £370,000 for a “non-prosecution agreement”.

Andrew will almost certainly have to pay up to £10m to secure a ‘no liability’ deal.

Even then, there’s no guarantee the deeply damaging new document won’t be made public as negotiations drag on.

Effective revenge for a victim of Epstein also means his reputation will never recover.

3. Remove from the case

Refused to participate in the lawsuit brought against him. His accuser will almost certainly win a judgment by default and damage and costs in the millions.

The cost of fame will be far worse for Andrew – as well as inciting the fury of the UK’s most powerful ally.

Andrew remains the subject of a US “mutual legal assistance” request against the UK – filed as they seek to question him in the Epstein investigation.

It’s getting dusty but now Andrew can put the Home Office in a tough spot.
