Chris Noth Accused of Sexually Assaulting Singer Lisa Gentile: Details
Chris Noth Accused of Sexually Assaulting Singer Lisa Gentile: DetailsLisa Gentile claimed during a press conference on Thursday, December 23, that she was “sexually victimized” by the Law & Order alum, 67, in 2002. Alongside her lawyer, Gloria Allred, the singer-songwriter alleged that the Sex and the City veteran forcibly kissed her and touched her breasts.
Some of these titles were inherited by Andrew from his late father, Prince Philip, including Colonel of the Grenadier Guards, described by theas “one of the most senior infantry regiments in the British army”.
But Andrew “has not lost everything”, wrote Craig Prescott, a law lecturer at Bangor University, in an article on. Along with his rank of vice admiral in the Royal Navy, Andrew retains his birth title of “prince” and “remains the Duke of York, which is a peerage”, Prescott explained. And he is also still ninth in line of succession to the throne.
How the peerage works
The peerage is a centuries-old ranking system for British nobility. Five ranks of the peerage still exist today: duke, marquess, earl, viscount and baron.

Duke is the “highest and most important rank”, explained online history magazine. Edward III created the first duke, in 1337, when he made his eldest son the Duke of Cornwall – a title now held by Prince Charles. Dukes (and duchesses, the female counterpart) are addressed as “your grace”.
Andrew became Duke of York when he married Sarah Ferguson in 1986. The title is traditionally granted to the monarch’s second son and has previously been held by the Queen’s father, George VI, and her grandfather, George V.
Unlike military titles, Andrew’s peerage can only be removed by an Act of Parliament. A peerage removal “can only be done by statute, passed by both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, and receiving royal assent, which means the agreement of the Queen”, said thesite.
Calls for Andrew to lose his duke title have been growing, particularly in York, where a city council member has launched a campaign backing the move.

Sarah Jessica Parker Is ‘Livid,’ ‘Heartbroken’ Over Chris Noth Allegations“She is fiercely protective of Carrie Bradshaw and livid that she and everyone else at the show has been put into this position,” the insider says. “It is not about the money, but rather her legacy. Carrie was all about helping women and now, under her watch, women are saying that they have been hurt.
But there is no historical precedent for the removal of a title of peerage by the Queen: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are still the Duke and Duchess of Sussex despite quitting royal life in January 2020.
Other ranks of the peerage
A marquess, which is next in the line of nobility after a duke, is formally addressed as “lord”, and the wife of a marquess is a marchioness, addressed as “lady”. Only one woman in history has been created a marchioness in her own right: Anne Boleyn, prior to her marriage to Henry VIII.
The next rank in order of precedence is earl. The name comes from the Anglo-Saxon “eorl”, meaning military leader. After earl comes viscount, a title created in the 15th century, and then baron, a name derived from the Old German word “baro”, meaning freeman.
Titles of the peerage may be hereditary or granted for life. Historically, hereditary peers have had the right to. However, following the House of Lords Act of 1999, most hereditary peers have now been “ejected”, with fewer than 100 remaining.
These days, new hereditary peerages are only granted by the Queen to members of the Royal Family. According to, the grandchildren of sons of the reigning monarch are automatically given the title of “prince” or “princess”, but any title beyond that – such as duke or duchess – “is granted by courtesy”.

The meaning of HRH
Although Andrew will retain his His Royal Highness (HRH) title – described byas “a prized symbol of his status as a senior member of the Royal Family” – he will not be able to use it in any official capacity. This puts him on the same footing as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex following their move to California.
HRH titles have been issued to children and grandchildren of the monarch since the early 18th century, at the discretion of the monarchs of the time.
“Not everyone has accepted the offer of an HRH,” said. The Queen’s daughter, Princess Anne, turned it down for her children, Peter and Zara.
“That’s in contrast to Prince Andrew, who allowed his daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie, to carry it,” added the US-based news network.
Andrew and the Sussexes are not the first royals to be prevented from using the HRH titles. The Queen also stripped Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson of the title following their divorces from Charles and Andrew respectively. Diana was instead given the courtesy title of “Diana, Princess of Wales”.
How royal patronages work
As well as losing his honorary military titles and the use of HRH, Andrew has also been stripped of his many royal patronages – when members of the Royal Family lend their name to a charity or organisation.
These shows of royal support can provide “vital publicity” for a cause and “add status”, according to the family’s.
In November 2019, “when the Duke of York stepped down from public duties, he held 230 patronages”, said thesite.
But many “rushed to distance themselves from the Queen’s second son” following his “disastrous” Newsnight interview about his friendship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, the paper continued.
However, prior to the Palace’s announcement last week, “more than 90 organisations still appeared on the official website in the list of the duke’s charities and patronages”.
Andrew’s patronages have now been returned to the Queen and will be redistributed to other members of the Royal Family.
