Flag flying on royal birthdays questioned after order to mark Andrew’s 60th

Flag flying on royal birthdays questioned after order to mark Andrew’s 60th

One Norfolk council has confirmed it will not be flying a flag for Prince Andrew's birthday, despite doing so in previous years.

Last month, a USA prosecutor mentioned that Andrew had equipped "0 co-operation" into the investigation of Epstein's activities, although the prince was reportedly "indignant and bewildered" over this declare, with royal assets announcing that he had no longer been approached but, The Guardian reported.

Andrew stayed in the Navy until 2001.

Meanwhile, other councils said they have never flown a flag for a member of the royal families birthday.

He eventually stepped down from his public duties, saying the controversy surrounding his "ill-judged" relationship with Epstein had caused a major disruption to the royal family's work. Moreover, it would have come after his previous promotions, having become a Rear Admiral when he turned 50 and Vice Admiral when he turned 55.

But a palace spokeswoman said Andrew would push back the promotion until he can resume full royal duties.

"We are working with the Royal Household to consider how flag flying policy can be applied in changing circumstances, such as when a member of the Royal Family steps back from public duties".

In addition to Andrew losing out on a chance for promotion, the British government this week told local authorities that they don't need to fly the Union Jack Flag after all in honor of Andrew's birthday, the Guardian reported.

"It's time we ended the whole nonsense of flying flags for royal birthdays".

Epstein, a convicted pedophile and accused sex-trafficker, died at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan in August. So, the government reversed its order.

Prince Andrew said his links to the United States financier, who was found dead in his jail cell in August 2019 while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges, had become a "major disruption" to the Royal Family.

Prince Andrew noted that Queen Elizabeth II is very concerned about the novel coronavirus outbreak in China and knows that the fight against the epidemic is at a critical stage. The party would involve his more than 200 patronages.

The Queen has stood by Andrew throughout his scandal.

Following the get-together, Liu Xiaoming, tweeted to say the Duke of York had passed on a message of support from the Queen to those battling coronavirus.

He added: "I continue to unequivocally regret my ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein". "Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required".
