Prince Andrew was stripped of his royal titles and military affiliations after he was accused of sexually abusing Virginia Roberts Giuffre. The Duke of York insisted that he was innocent, but he still decided to reach a settlement with his accuser. Doing so means that Queen Elizabeth’s favorite son would have to pay Giuffre millions.

“With the Queen's approval and agreement, the Duke of York's military affiliations and Royal patronages have been returned to the Queen. The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen,” Buckingham Palace announced earlier this year.

Prince Andrew Wants To Be Photographed Wearing His Grenadier Guards Royal Cipher?

Even though Prince Andrew has already been stripped of his military affiliations and patronages, The Sun claimed that he continues to wear a fleece and jacket bearing the Grenadier Guards royal cipher when he’s horse riding in Windsor Castle.

A source told the publication that Sarah Ferguson’s ex-husband deliberately wears the royal cipher when there are photographers in the area so that they could snap photos of him. However, it is unclear why this would be the case.

Former Grenadier Guard Calls Prince Andrew’s Actions Inappropriate

Former Grenadier Guard Julian Perreira called Prince Andrew’s actions inappropriate.

“It’s wholly inappropriate that he continues to wear the uniform. He has been asked to leave and hand over his title. He is continuing to tarnish the regiment. He didn’t serve in the Grenadier Guards, it was only ceremonial so he has no right to continue to wear the royal cipher. But no one can officially tell him to stop wearing it and he knows he can get away with it,” Perreira said.

According to Express, Prince Andrew is trying to seek his mom’s approval of allowing him to be reappointed as Colonel of the Guards. However, this would reportedly be blocked by Prince Charles and Prince William, who wouldn’t allow Prince Andrew to return to his royal duties.

Other sources claimed that Prince William’s wife, Kate Middleton, could be tapped to replace Prince Andrew in the role. And if this happens, the Duchess of Cambridge would make history as the first female-appointed colonel in the Grenadier Guards.

“From straw polling through the ranks, they would all love it to be Kate. We all admire the way she has fitted in and behaved, she never seems to put a foot wrong. Everything she has taken on she really commits to, and we want someone who will really engage with us,” a source told The Sunday Times.

Meghan Markle An Even Bigger Pariah Than Prince Andrew

Meanwhile, Prince Andrew also made headlines this week after royal expert Dan Wootton compared him to Meghan Markle. In his column for Daily Mail, Wootton said that the Duchess of Sussex is an even bigger pariah than the Duke of York.

“I fear senior royals have put family relations ahead of what’s morally right by keeping the report forever secret and refusing to even detail what processes and policies have changed as a result of the complaints against Meghan. While there’s no love lost for either Harry or Meghan among senior royals or courtiers, who I recently revealed view the couple as bigger pariahs than disgraced Prince Andrew, they’re acutely aware of the damage the couple could unleash on the monarchy with a lengthy public campaign suggesting they were subjected to discrimination,” he said.

Wootton also said that Prince Harry and Markle can now pursue a political career after escaping the bullying allegations.
