Prince Andrew Loses Honorary Titles At Three Northern Ireland Golf Clubs


The decision by the Queen is part of the fallout from the duke’s civil sexual assault case, with Prince Andrew being stripped of his Royal patronages. As a result, he has also lost his honorary titles at Royal Portrush, Royal Belfast and Royal County Down golf clubs in Northern Ireland.

A source close to the clubs said: “There will be immense relief by members that this decision has been taken out of their hands.” A spokesperson for Royal Portrush said he had no comment to make on the matter.

Back in 2019, The Open Championship returned to Royal Portrush for the first time in nearly 70 years, with Andrew seen attending the event. That week, he caused outrage as it was reported he spent £16,000 of taxpayers money on a private jet to watch The Open.
