“It’s been suggested he’ll try to come back this year to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Falklands but it’s not going to happen to him the way it is now. I wouldn’t be surprised if the timing is right, he’s gone. its military patronage.” Queen may strip Duke of title as ‘last resort’ as judge orders Royal Family to face sex abuse trial
