Late Queen’s final self-sacrifice: Her decision to strip Prince Andrew his Royal titles

The Queen's decision to strip Prince Andrew of his HRH and military titles following his settlement of a lawsuit over alleged sexual abuse was her 'final gesture of self-sacrifice', a documentary has claimed.

The late monarch, who died in September 2022, made the decision the previous January after the Duke of York, 63, was accused by Virginia Giuffre of sexual abuse relating to his associations with Jeffrey Epstein.

Episode five of Inside the House of Windsor, which airs on Thursday on ITVX, explores the late Queen’s loyalty to her second-eldest son, the ‘spare’ of the family, amid the allegations from Ms Giuffre, which he has always denied.

The episode, titled Heirs and Spares, notes how the late monarch stuck by father-of-two Andrew as public opinion turned against him following a car crash interview with BBC Newsnight – but after the civil lawsuit was settled in January 2022, she finally decided to remove Prince Andrew’s titles.

Showing footage of the late monarch with King Charles and Queen Camilla, as well as the Waleses, on the Buckingham Palace balcony during her final appearance, the episode noted that the royals who were not present were the most telling insight into her state of mind.

The voiceover says: ‘Harry has left the country and builds a new life in America.

‘And now, the Queen has stripped Andrew of his HRH title. A final gesture of self-sacrifice.’
