Letter: In Brief

Sir: The Church of England think-tank proposal to make the coronation ritual more inclusive seems sensible, given the irreversibly plural nature of our society ("Church divides on coronation", 18 January). But it raises the question as to why, in this era, a body committed to Jesus Christ - who said "the last shall be first" - still wishes to legitimate a monarchy based on wealth and privilege at all.
