Britain’s Prince Andrew is no longer an honorary citizen of York | Property

PropertyBritain’s Prince Andrew, 62, who has been tainted by an abuse scandal, is no longer an honorary citizen of York in northern England. The city council stripped him of that title after a unanimous vote.

Andrew has held the honorary title “Freedom of York” since 1987. “Honorary citizenship of our great city is given to people who represent the best of York,” said one city councilor. “It is inappropriate for Prince Andrew to maintain any ties with our city.”

Andrew is still the Duke of York. According to the BBC, members of the council are calling for him to give up that title as well. She said after the vote that if he did not do it himself, the government and the royal family should take action.

The unanimous decision came in the wake of revelations about the role of the second son of Queen Elizabeth (96) in a massive insult scandal involving the late American millionaire Jeffrey Epstein. Andrew had previously had to give up all his military rank and official duties to the royal family.

In mid-February, Andrew managed to avoid being sued in the United States with a settlement likely to cost millions. Virginia Joffrey accused him of repeatedly abusing her when she was 17. Andrew denied the allegations.
