One of Scotland’s most esteemed golf clubs has ended Prince Andrew’s honorary membership.
The Duke of York was just one of four living honorary members of Royal Dornoch Golf Club in Sutherland but following his out-of-court settlement with Virginia Giuffre, his name is to be removed from a list of honorary members.
Other honorary members have included the late “voice of golf” Peter Alliss.
The club refused to comment on the move but, in an update to its 2,200 members, it confirmed the Duke was “no longer” an honorary member.
The Highland club’s decision comes after Prince Andrew’s resignation as president of Inverness Golf Club – where he officially opened the clubhouse in 1998 – and his membership of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews.
There are also moves to strip the prince of his Earl of Inverness title, which he has held since 1986.
