Prince Andrew’s Twitter Account Deleted After Stripped of Royal Titles

This account no longer exists. Prince Andrew’s social media accounts have been shut down or set to private following being stripped of his military titles. 

The royal’s Twitter account @ TheDukeofYork has been deleted and is no longer on the social media channel. His YouTube account was also deleted and is no longer searchable. 

His Instagram, which still includes the title HRH in the handle, @hrhthedukeofyork, has been switched to private, despite the statement from Buckingham Palace last week about his titles. It still has 219,000 followers and 793 posts.

His Facebook account seems to remain active, or at least not deleted, as there have not been any posts on it whatsoever since November 2019 when a statement was released that he would be stepping back from public life. 

The latest marks yet another step back from the public. It comes following updates in the ongoing civil sexual assault case against him in the U.S.

A judge last week decided that the case from Virginia Giuffre would be allowed to proceed. Within the day after, Buckingham Palace released statements that the royal would have his military titles and patronages removed. Prince Andrew will also now no longer be able to style himself as His Royal Highness – or HRH for short. 

The statement said that The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties, and states specifically that Andrew will be defending himself in the case as a private citizen.

The statement was the only other one posted on the Royal Family website since the November 2019 one stating he would be stepping back from public life. 

Giuffre says that she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew at the age of 17 by his associate, the late sex offender, and disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein and his partner in crime, convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.
