Prince Andrew has caused so much embarrassment to the royal family that York's MP does not want to see the same thing happen in the city.

In a tweet, Queen Elizabeth II eventually moved the glass. She put a boundary between her son and the monarchy by revoking his titles, despite the pending civil action launched against him. Although he no longer possesses his military titles or royal patronages, Prince Andrew retains his dukedom, recognizing him as a royal.

The MP for York, on the other hand, quickly demanded that his duke title be revoked to save the city's reputation.

Following the US court judge's decision on his plea to drop the case, York's MP Rachael Maskell remarked that Prince Andrew should not hold the title for another day. She explained that the royal prince might cause more damage to the city than anticipated.

"There's a very serious allegation made against this man of privilege & entitlement. I'm working with agencies to tackle sexual violence & misogyny. #NotInYorksName," she said in a tweet.

Several netizens also endorsed the hashtag by using it in their own posts on the situation. Municipal councilors likewise backed her wish and demanded that Prince Andrew's dukedom be removed as well.

Pete Kilbane, the leader of the Labor Party, claimed Prince Andrew had lost the public's respect and trust.

However, Paul Doughty, the city's Conservative party leader, believes that the "cornerstone of a civilized society" is the tradition of innocence until proven guilty.

"Likewise, I also believe that someone's position, whether a royal or otherwise should have equity in law," he said per BBC News.

With Prince Andrew's recent shady practices, more people have advised everyone to avoid ties with him at all cost.

Darryl Smalley, a senior Lib Dem councilor, voiced his desire to see Prince Andrew relinquish his dukedom in an interview with Mail Online.

"I think many, many people in the city really are quite aggrieved that whilst many of his titles have been removed - those that are associated to the military and other organisations - the ones that actually ties a whole city with a population of 200,000 are what is retained," he added.

The new demand has elicited no response from Queen Elizabeth II. However, current legislation stipulates that Prince Andrew's Duke of York title must be legally removed by an act of parliament. He has been using it since 1986.
