It was granted in 1987 and recognises notable service.

Other recipients have included the Duke of Wellington, Sir Winston Churchill and Dame Judi Dench.

The Lib Dem-led city council is also calling for him to give up his Duke of York title.

Cllr Darryl Smalley, who called the allegations Andrew, 61, faced “incredibly serious”, said: “We’re determined to explore all options to sever his links to our city.”

He urged the council to vote to remove the Duke’s Honorary Freedom of the City of York, adding: “Buckingham Palace and the Government must then act to remove his Duke of York title.”

Andrew — already stripped of his military roles and royal patronages — has said he “regrets his association” with disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, who trafficked Ms Giuffre, 38.

He has agreed an out-of-court settlement with her, reported to be an estimated £12million.
