The constant public services of the Queen and her family, generally loyally supported by staff and friends, may well be overlooked by those who are, as the Weasel implies (Up & Down Canary Wharf, 18 February), "blind as bats".

Windsor Great Park, mentioned because it had featured in David Attenborough's The Secret Life of Plants, of which the Weasel is an avid viewer, is part of the Crown Estate, profits from which, always quietly pocketed by the Treasury and possibly soon to be augmented by oil revenue, already far exceed the money spent by the Government on our Head of State.

Such genuine examples of the unseen worth of our monarchy should replace the Weasel's beastly metaphor.
