The Prince Andrew, Duke of York, KG, KCVO, CD, ADC(P) (Andrew Albert Christian Edward; born 19 February 1960), is the second son and third child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. At the time of his birth, he was second in the line of succession to the thrones of seven independent states; however, after further births in the Royal Family, and an evolution of the Commonwealth, Prince Andrew is currently fourth in line to the thrones of 16 countries. He is resident in and most directly involved with the United Kingdom, the oldest realm, while also carrying out duties in and on behalf of the other states of which his mother is sovereign. He also holds the earned rank of Commander in the Royal Navy, in which he served as an active duty helicopter pilot and later instructor in helicopter flight. Prince Andrew is the only member of the Royal Family since at least World War I to have come under actual enemy fire, which occurred during his service in the Falklands War in 1982.

Known for his military service, Prince Andrew is also known for his marriage to, and subsequent divorce from, Sarah Ferguson which was widely reported in both the mainstream and tabloid media. As well as carrying out various royal duties, he currently serves as the United Kingdom's Special Representative for International Trade and Investment.
