Fri 14 January 2022:
According to a YouGov poll released on Friday, the majority of UK people support the decision to strip Prince Andrew, who is accused of sexual abuse.
Prince Andrew, the son of Queen Elizabeth II, was deprived of his military ranks and royal patronage on Thursday, according to the Buckingham Palace, after human rights campaigner Virginia Giuffre filed a case in a US Federal court accusing the prince of raping her when she was 17 years old.
The charges were refuted by Prince Andrew.
To the question “Prince Andrew will no longer use the title HRH (His Royal Highness). Do you think this was the right or wrong thing for him to do,” 82% of respondents answered yes, with 13% saying they didn’t know, and only 6% saying no. An overwhelming majority of respondents across all age, gender and political groups supported the decision, the poll showed.
The survey has covered 4,941 adult respondents from Great Britain.
