Going forward, the prince will no longer use the title “His Royal Highness,” a symbol of his status as a senior member of the royal family.The case has deeply shaken the royal family, already buffeted by scandal and the rancorous departure of Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan.Raising questions about class, entitlement and toxic masculinity, the accusations against Prince Andrew have also laid bare the changing face of Britain during the #MeToo era.Before becoming ensnared by scandal, Prince Andrew’s royal duties included serving as a trade representative for Britain, a role that brought him into the orbit of the superrich.
