It had to happen sooner or later
Prince Andrew may be forced to QUIT his nine military roles 'within weeks' as Grenadier Guards veteran calls for him to step down as regiment's Colonel after not attending any official functions since sex scandal broke

The modern armed forces are a bit difficult to explain. While they're very much forward-looking, innovative, and fairly "woke", they're still also very much small c conservative and mired in tradition. Such things as sex scandals are a huge no-no and, when hint of such a thing arises "inside the wire", are dealt with quickly and pretty ruthlessly. While the army can never quite bring itself to criticise the monarchy, it was only a matter of time before such private thoughts made it into the public sphere.
The Duke of York has reportedly not been at a single military event since he stepped back from royal duties two years ago over allegations he had sex three times with one of Jeffrey Epstein's young 'slaves'.
Because the invitations stopped coming.
For the armed forces to practically sever their ties with a royally-appointed senior officer is unprecedented. For a member of a Guards regiment, even a retired one, to go on the record criticising the Colonel of the Regiment, even mildly, is a clear indication of the anger and frustration that is felt about this whole sordid business.
Whatever the outcome of the legal cases going on in America, his behaviour in this affair has done irreparable damage to his image, shown him to be a dishonourable cad, and has rendered Andrew unfit to play any sort of role in the armed forces.
