In alleged crisis talks, both William and Charles ‘urged Queen to strip Andrew of his titles.’

After Prince Andrew’s civil sexual assault case was announced, Prince Charles and Prince William allegedly both urged the Queen to strip him of royal titles.

During an alleged hour-long meeting at Windsor, Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly urged the Queen to strip Prince Andrew of his royal patronages and military titles.

According to sources, the disgraced Duke, 61, who is facing a possible sex-case trial in the United States, will never return to royal duties.

According to The Sun, he can no longer use the title His Royal Highness in any official capacity.

As he responds to a civil sexual assault case, Andrew is expected to fade from public view.

Her Majesty is said to have made the crucial decision after meeting with her eldest son and the Duke of Cambridge on Wednesday.

William is said to have played a key role in the decision, assisting his grandmother in realizing Andrew’s situation was “grave.”

Both he and Charles are said to agree that Andrew must leave, and that he was “completely furious” when he “crossed a red line.”

Insiders say the decision to downgrade the royal, who is known as the Queen’s “favourite son,” to a “private citizen” was one of the Queen’s most difficult in her 70 years on the throne.

The historic decision came after family discussions about the growing problem of the “Andrew issue.”

She is said to have summoned him to Windsor Castle at 11:30 a.m. before effectively kicking him out of the Royal Family during a 90-minute meeting.

After receiving a letter signed by Navy, RAF, and Army veterans requesting that his military appointments be revoked, the Queen was under increasing pressure to act.

Her decision came soon after a New York judge ruled that he must face a civil trial over allegations that he sexually assaulted Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre when she was 17 years old.

Andrew will now have to face his trial as a regular citizen, despite his vehement denials.

“It’s a marathon, not a sprint,” a source close to Andrew said, “and the Duke will continue to defend himself against these claims.”

Andrew is reportedly seeking a £10 million out-of-court settlement for Ms Giuffre.

As he is now a private citizen, he is expected to raise the vast sum of money by selling his chalet in Verbier, Switzerland.
