The official Twitter page of Prince Andrew, @TheDukeOf York, has been deleted.
The Prince, who is facing a civil sexual assault trial in the United States, was recently stripped of his honorary military titles and charities by the Queen.
Even though the Prince’s Twitter account has been deleted, he seems to still have an Instagram account. Only recently the privacy settings on his Instagram account were changed to private so that followers had to request access to his account.
CNN contacted Buckingham Palace this week and received a statement. In the statement, the Palace said that “changes have been made to reflect the recent statement from Buckingham Palace regarding The Duke of York”.
On the British monarchy’s official website, the Queen’s second son still has a page reflecting his dukedom. However, at the top of the Duke of York page, it now refers to the Queen’s January 13 statement announcing his loss of titles and patronages, CNN reports.
Prince Andrew is being accused by Virginia Giuffre of being forced to perform sex acts with the prince while she was underaged and being trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein.
