Veterans today joined calls for the Queen to strip Andrew of his military honours, as a royal expert said Charles and Williams must take action before things go from ‘bad to worse’.

They made a heartfelt plea, saying: ‘Please do not leave it any longer.’
Accusing the duke of bringing the services he is associated with into disrepute, they added that ‘were this any other senior military officer it is inconceivable that he would still be in post’.
