Following the meeting, Buckingham Palace shared the news in a statement.
“With the Queen’s approval and agreement, The Duke of York’s military affiliations and royal patronage have been returned to the Queen,” the Palace said.
“The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.”
Royal family ‘are not behind’ Prince Andrew
Meanwhile, it comes after a royal expert claimed that some of the family are not behind Prince Andrew following recent news.
Appearing on GMB this week, Chris Ship said: “The Queen‘s Platinum Jubilee, by the way, comes up in just a few weeks’ time.
“Look, from what I hear, I mean his immediate family – Sarah Ferguson, his two daughters – are behind him.
“But other members of the Royal Family very much are not.”
Chris added: “So no, the support he has in amongst the wider family is very, very thin on the ground indeed.”
