The Prince of Wales has dismissed questions about his brother Prince Andrew in his first public appearance since the Queen dropped the royal roles of the Duke of York and the title of His Royal Highness.
The duke denies the allegations of sexual abuse and promises to fight them in the United States.
York City Council is fighting to strip him of his last remaining title to protect the reputation of the area.
York Labor and Co-operative Central MP Rachael Maskell says the city itself suffers because of the connection to Prince Andrew as Duke of York.
“That’s why people say we want to disassociate ourselves from the current Duke of York and from our city,” he said.
