BT’s royal correspondent: ‘It’s game over’ for Prince Andrew ‘

That Prince Andrew has been deprived of all royal titles is the ‘final nail in the coffin on the part of the Queen’. This is the assessment from BT’s royal correspondent Jacob Heinel.

He calls today’s announcement from Buckingham Palace that Prince Andrew will no longer have any public commitments or titles for ‘a wild development’.

“It’s game over ‘for Prince Andrew in relation to the royal family.’

According to a statement from the court, the prince is no longer allowed to use his royal titles. It is no longer called ‘his royal highness’ and he can no longer represent the queen.

»All connections to the royal house have been severed. It’s Queen Elizabeth’s way of putting him completely on ice, “says Jacob Heinel and continues:

“It’s the prince’s final farewell to what he loves most – being a member of the British royal family.”

If Prince Andrew wants to make any hopes of changing the state of affairs, his only option is to reach a settlement in the civil lawsuit that Virginia Giuffre has filed against him.

She accuses the prince of abusing and abusing her when she was 17 and ruled by the late financier Jeffrey Epstein. The prince’s lawyers have claimed that Giuffre waived the right to sue him when she entered into a legal settlement with Epstein in 2009.

But the judge in the US trial is now in favor of a civil trial against the British prince this autumn. That is the decision that the British royal family is now reacting to.

“The Queen emphasizes with her announcement that Andrew is entering the trial as a completely ordinary citizen. He should not expect in any way to be able to draw on the royal house – in other words, he stands Palle alone in the world, “says Jacob Heinel.

According to Virginia Giuffre’s lawyer, David Boise, it is possible that he will summon members of the royal family as witnesses in an upcoming trial. Among other things, the lawyer has said that Meghan Markle probably has ‘important knowledge’ in the case.

That scenario the British royal family cannot allow, and the royal family is desperately hoping for a settlement so that the trial does not become a reality.

“The worst thing Andrew can do is let the trial unfold,” says Jacob Heinel.
