Government buildings will not have to fly flag for Prince Andrew's birthday

No flags to be flown for Prince Andrew's birthday, Bailiff's office confirms Jersey States will not fly the Union Flag to mark Prince Andrew's birthday

Here's what the royal birthday post said: "On this day in 1960, Prince Andrew was born at Buckingham Palace, the first child born to a reigning monarch for 103 years".

The restaurant became the unlikely subject of intense scrutiny a year ago when the Duke of York told the BBC's Emily Maitlis he could not have had sex with teenager Virginia Giuffre because he had spent the day in question attending a birthday party at the branch with daughter Princess Beatrice.

Yesterday the prince, who has stepped back from royal duties since details of his friendship with disgraced U.S. financier Jeffrey Epstein came to light, held low-key celebrations of the milestone birthday. Express noted that the omission of the title was surprising especially since the royal family addressed the Duke of York using his HRH style when they greeted him on his 58th and 59th birthday.

Another difference for Prince Andrew's celebrations this year is that government buildings will not be required to fly the Union Jack flag to mark the Duke of York's 60th birthday.

As a result of the public backlash surrounding the Duke's auto crash interview attempting to explain their relationship, he stepped back from public duties in November.

The Queen's birthday message was posted on social media.

Prince Andrew has been continuously slapped with the fact that he is now a royal without a role.

On Tuesday evening the Department for Culture, Media and Sport confirmed it would not be mandatory for government buildings to fly the Union flag to mark his birthday.

Bells at Westminster Abbey will ring as it is a Royal Peculiar - under the jurisdiction of the monarch rather than a bishop.

Meanwhile Sarah Ferguson, 60, shared a photo of her ex-husband relaxing at home with two dogs, alongside an unusually subdued message. Andrew's older brother Charles was born in 1948, four years before Elizabeth became queen. Many government buildings fly the Union Flag every day anyway.

The duke was due to be promoted to admiral on his 60th birthday, in line with a longstanding policy that sees senior royals treated as serving military members.
