After settling with Virginia Giuffre over her underage sex accusations against him and being stripped of his military titles by Queen Elizabeth, things continue to come crashing down for Prince Andrew. On April 27, 2022, City of York councilors voted unanimously to strip Andrew of his City of York Title.
The Freedom of the City of York title was bestowed upon Andrew in 1987, soon after he married his now ex-wife Sarah Ferguson. Darryl Smalley, the the City of York council's executive member for culture, stated, "The removal of this honorary title sends the right message that we as a city stand with victims of abuse."
Andrew may now have to worry about his Duke of York title, which he obtained when he married Ferguson in 1986. Smalley stated that Andrew should voluntarily give up the title, and if not, "the Government and Buckingham Palace must step in to remove his title to finally end Prince Andrew's connection to York."
