Prince Andrew will no longer be known as "His Royal Highness."
Buckingham Palace says Prince Andrew's title, military link and Royal patronages have been removed as he fights a US lawsuit in which he is accused of sex abuse.
The 61 year old son of the Queen was forced to step down from public duties in 2019 due to his connections to convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
On Wednesday, a U.S. judge gave the go ahead for a sexual assault lawsuit to proceed.
The suit was filed in August by Virginia Giuffre in August, who is accusing him of sexually abusing her when she was 17.
