Sir: Fay Weldon asks the Queen to abdicate without delay in favour of Prince Charles because he "makes an increasingly sympathetic figure" ("Sorry, Ma'am, but it is time for you to go", 17 September). I am sure I am not alone in feeling that he can never hope to regain enough sympathy nationally to be a respected king after the way he treated his wife. The only advantage I can see in an early abdication is that it would greatly hasten our progress towards being a republic.
