The post was taken down after it caused an outcry.
This is the first time a royal has been able to contain their public posting, with no one knowing what HRH stands for until now.
The “prince andrew news” is a post that was removed from the Instagram account of Prince Andrew. The post referred to him as “HRH”.

After referring to Prince Andrew as ‘HRH,’ an Instagram post posted on his behalf was removed.
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War, the Duke of York posted his recollections of the conflict on his ex-Instagram wife’s account, including the event that left him unable to sweat.
On Sarah Ferguson’s account, a 700-word statement – a rare public outburst from the sidelined royal – was divided into three postings and erased after nearly two hours.
It claimed it was ‘authored by HRH The Duke of York’ under the previous post before the ‘HRH’ was removed.
During the consequences from his civil sex lawsuit in the United States, Andrew was instructed to cease using the ‘his royal highness’ style.
The 62-year-old monarch, who served as a helicopter pilot during the battle, seemed to allude to a well-known event in which he says he was rendered sweatless.
He mentioned the near call in a 2019 Newsnight interview in an attempt to refute his accuser’s claim that he was dancing and sweating heavily on the night of the alleged assault.
Virginia Giuffre alleges he sexually raped her when she was 17 years old, and that she was trafficked by convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Andrew, who has always vehemently denied any misconduct, and Ms Giuffre agreed to a multi-million pound deal to halt the dispute before it went to trial.
‘So while I go back to a day when a young man went to battle, full of bravado, I returned a changed man,’ Andrew wrote on the war.
‘I pushed childish things and false bravado to the side and returned a man who understood human weakness and pain.’
‘I was flying and witnessed a chaff round launched from one of our ships that passed not that far in front of us,’ he wrote of the firing event.
‘It was on a steady heading for a minute before crossing to our left.’
‘The anxiety that it was going to be that, even if it was just for a time, has left an indelible mark on me.’

Several months after he stepped aside from frontline royal responsibilities, the Queen revoked her son of his military honors in the face of public criticism.
Andrew has kept a quiet profile in recent years, but he was spotted last week assisting his mother to her seat during a memorial ceremony for Prince Philip.
Andrew and his family have been identified in a High Court case involving a Turkish banker and a multimillionaire that has just recently come to light.
According to a judge handling the case, the Duke of York was reportedly paid £750,000.
The wealthy alleges the banker tricked her into believing the money was for ‘help’ with a passport application.
The Duke, who has apparently refunded the money, has been cleared of any wrongdoing.
