It's like suggesting that the Duke of Edinburgh should have been stripped of all honors....indeed prevented from marrying into the BRF period, because his sisters were Nazis married to high ranking SS officers.

Where does it end?
I don't think Beatrice and Eugenie will have their HRH removed, just they might make the personal decisions not to use it in public. They already do not use it in their work life. But both of them do private engagements - and it is used there.
The housing at Windsor is another issue. There is currently some debate to better and more commercially use the royal estates. One is open them to the public as tourist attractions (year round) and the other is increased farming land or return to nature. The issue is mostly security cost - currently the whole area is policed by the metro police and then the internal house are by a personal security team. There are ways to cut the estate up to make the security at the castle area better, and it will lessen security on the greater property where the cottages and houses are. it they open to tourism - it will be another issue - and will involve greater security risks and costs. In the 1980's and into 1990's - most of the family left their housing on the estate, and they then they were used by staff. I just think that the housing issue will be brought up the closer we get to King Charles. Yes - I know he has a lease - but so did the other royals that left. Arrangements can be made - say Chalres offers to pay half the cost of a house near Beatrice.

I actually expected the press to pick up on this - why wasn't the Order of the Garter removed.

Beatrice and her husband have recently moved to the Cotswolds with their young children.

They are not costing the Crown a cent.

Eugenie and Jack are living on a property granted to her cousin Harry by the queen. But they take no $$ from the taxpayers to live there.

Maybe I am just not understanding what more they should be doing at this point.

I have sympathy for them both. Why would she warn the younger girl? At the time she saw nothing wrong with the lifestyle she was leading because everyone in her insulated little world was doing the same thing. Being a teenager and included in such an exclusive club is heady stuff, especially for a vulnerable young woman seeking approval from the adults in her life. She wasn't going to rock the boat and lose the only thing she had going for herself at the time.

Thank you for pointing that out. It makes sense.

I am honestly struggling to muster sympathy for anyone in this sleazy nasty saga.

I LOATHE Epstein and Maxwell for being the amoral sociopaths they were.

I despise their lustful shallow spiritually bankrupt friends and associates.

Ditto Andrew for all of the above and add monumental stupidity and arrogance for good measure.

The only people I feel truly sad for here are Andrew's girls.

Why would they want to give up their HRH?

I understand the rules for 'regular' peerages, but I though the 'royal dukedoms' were in the sole gift of the Monarch and she could 'giveth and taketh away' without parliamentary approval.
No, the peerage can only be removed by Parliament

For so far any presumption of innocence as long as Lady Justitia has not spoken.

So far any possibility that the plaintiff may lose the case.



This is really an oldfashioned crucifixion. "Let us hang him high!"


It shows that anyone can step forward, spout accusations, and the person has to move heaven and earth, sell possessions, just to fight his right but even when it has not come to a trial the person is already kaltgestellt. It shows that Harry and the late Diana have a point: the Royal Firm is a ruthless monster.

what on earth has the Royal firm got to do with it? Andrew is the one who behaved stupidly and let himself in for a legal case.

At the end of the day, the preservation of the Monarchy will always come first. Right down through the centuries of Royalty, family members have always been expendable. Andrew, through his arrogance, has always put himself at the front of the queue.

Yes, its his own arrogance that landed him in this fix. What can the RF do but firmly insist to him that he has to lead a retired life and that he will never come back from this.

It would be ridiculous to want Andrew to move. At Royal Lodge he has a long lease and he has security and privacy. Why would they want to move him somwhere else?

Taking away the royal commissions and patronages as well the form of address Royal Highness at least gives the impression that the Duke of York is "guilty". That might very well be the case, but for so far I find it shocking that someone, in whose name "justice" is spoken, apparently approved or insisted these "sanctions".


For me this very smells of declaring someone guilty before he/she has been proved guilty according to law. If the Duke of York indeed is guilty: be my absolute guest and sanction him if you like. But any presumption of innocence, any possibility that the plaintiff actually might lose the case or the eventuality of mediation behind the screens seems totally thrown out of the windows. For so far the symbolic image of HM The Queen in whose name "justice" is spoken.

the queen gave patronages and honours. She can take them away. SInce charities and miltitary organisations do not want to work with Andrew, it is obvious that he will not be able to work as a royal again and so obviously the queen is going to take them away and give them to other people.

And what happens if the Duke of York is not convicted? I am not at all against sanctioning persons proven guilty for law. My objection is that someone is publicly thrown under the train but so far the Duke just will become part of a civil procedure by someone whom made an accusation.

Will it come to a procedure indeed? Or what willl the outcome be of an eventual procedure? It is totally up to the crystal ball in Madame Zelda's little gypsy tent at the Fun Fair...

Noone wants to work with Andrew. His louche lifestyle and his association iwth Epstein and Maxwell have damned him whether he wins or loses in a lawsuit.

But traditionally the second son was the spare. That's no longer the case. Charlotte will hold that position. The title should go to her, if it goes to anyone.

I agree. He's already tainted by his words and actions so no organisation will want his name linked to theirs, including the monarchy. I'm sure that Charles and William will keep Andrew on a tight leash and ensure he's out of sight and sound as much as possible.

My legal knowledge is limited to watching Law and Order:Special Victims Unit, so may I ask our wonderfully knowledgeable community:

1. Virginia is accusing PA of raping her 3 times. Why aren't police involved in charging a criminal case?

2. When Virginia filed the civil case, could PA have countersued her for slander and libel? If so, would she have had to come to the UK to answer such a charge, thus putting the burden of proof on her, in a very different jurisdiction?

Duc et Pair, I am glad to see someone saying what is currently true: PA is a horrible person but he hasn't been found guilty of ANYTHING. Until he is, and I have evaluated the evidence, I shall continue to give him the benefit of the "innocent until proven guilty" doubt.
