Buckingham Palace has announced that the Duke of York’s military titles and royal patronages have been returned to the Queen.

This means that Prince Andrew will stop using the style His Royal Highness in an official capacity.

The duke’s roles will be given to other Royal Family members, the source added.

It comes as he faces a civil case in the US over claims that he sexually assaulted a woman when she was 17, which he has consistently denied.

All Prince Andrew’s roles have been returned to the Queen with immediate effect, and will be redistributed to other members of the Royal Family, a Royal Source said.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence said it had no comment about the duke’s military titles being handed back to the Queen, and that it was a matter for the Palace.
