Queen Elizabeth II has stripped the military titles and royal patronages of her son, Prince Andrew, amid the continuation of his civil sex case in the U.S. As an army veteran and others see this move as fitting, some say it is "brutal."

Royal commentator Peter Hunt tweeted the word "brutal" after Buckingham Palace announced Prince Andrew had lost all of his honorary military roles and royal patronages. Though the Duke of York has vehemently denied the allegations made against him time and over again, a source said this turn of events has also resulted in the loss of his HRH style.

Hunt said the Windsors had just shown dynasty is more important than flesh and blood when the "institution is under threat," Express noted. Broadcaster Jeremy Vine echoed the same thing, adding that Buckingham Palace had started to look more brutal than the Conservative Party.

On the contrary, former "Good Morning Britain" presenter Piers Morgan blamed Prince Andrew instead. He understood it was a huge humiliation for Queen Elizabeth's third son, but he only had no one to blame but himself.

He even threatened that far worse things were to come "if he continued to stonewall his way out of any accountability" in the allegations Virginia Giuffre made against him. His case also involves his relationship with the late criminal sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell.

In addition, Baroness Hoey chimed in and suggested that Queen Elizabeth only acts for the benefit of her country, the U.K. He explained that no one was responsible for the behavior of a royal family member, so his sympathy was with the monarch.

With all this happening, author Nigel Cawthorne believed the palace had already run out of patience with Prince Andrew. He stressed the evidence gathering in Giuffre's case would start in earnest, triggering the stripping of the duke's titles and functions.

This just showed that he was already removed from official royal life. Lieutenant Stuart Hunt saw this move as fitting and should have been made "years ago." Despite calling the case "unsavory business," he is glad that Prince Andrew has already lost his military titles.

The royal title stripping comes after a ruling revealed the civil case made against him by Giuffre could proceed to trial. Buckingham Palace announced Prince Andrew would continue to face this case as a "private citizen."

With Queen Elizabeth's approval and agreement, her son's military affiliations and royal patronages had all returned to Her Majesty. With that being said, Prince Andrew would remain not doing any public duties.
