Prince Andrew High School in Canada decides to change its name of over 60 years to make it seem more ‘safe and inclusive’

Following pressure from the local community after sexual assault allegations were made against the royal, the school said it will be giving itself a new name which matches its ‘supportive and respectful’ ethos

The Prince Andrew High School in Canada has announced it is changing its name of more than 60 years to create a ‘safe and inclusive’ space for its students.

Principal Craig Campbell told parents in a letter that the school was ‘ready and excited’ for the re-brand which will ‘uphold its values.’

The education centre in Nova Scotia took the Duke of York’s name in 1960, to honour him shortly after he was born.

But following pressure from the local community after sexual assault allegations were made against the royal, the school said it will be giving itself a new name which matches its ‘supportive and respectful’ ethos.

The Queen’s youngest son is facing a civil lawsuit in New York over claims he sexually assaulted Virginia Giuffre when she was 17 – after his recent bid to have the case thrown out was rejected by a US judge. Andrew vehemently denies the claims.

The 61-year-old has since been stripped of his royal titles and patronages, and was further humiliated this week by bombshell claims from a former Buckingham Palace maid who branded him a ‘horrible, nasty man’ and alleged his ‘foul-mouthed’ tantrums left her in tears.
