More than 150 military veterans have asked Queen Elizabeth II (95) to revoke Prince Andrew (61) of his military titles. “Officers of the British military are committed to the highest standards of honesty, honesty and honorable behavior,” wrote the formerly high-ranking representatives of the Royal Navy and the British Army as well as fighter pilots in the letter published on Thursday. Prince Andrew, who is facing a civil lawsuit over allegations of ill-treatment in the United States, did not meet these standards.
“If this were any other high-ranking military officer, it would be out of the question that he would still be in office,” the letter said. The Queen is therefore being asked to withdraw all remaining military titles and ranks from her second eldest son. “We understand that he is your son, but we are writing to you as Head of State and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.” These steps could have happened a long time ago, but should not be postponed any longer.
Lawsuit against Andrew waved through
A trial against Prince Andrew has come a little closer with the decision of a court in New York on Wednesday: The judge rejected the objections of Andrew's lawyers who wanted to nip the lawsuit in the bud.

According to this, she was mediated by the now deceased US multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein. Andrew categorically denies the allegations. The Queen's son has resigned from his public duties as a member of the Royal Family since the allegations became known, but has so far retained the military title.
