i Editor's Letter: Why monarchists should worry about Charles letters

Republicans will be disappointed – no explosive exchange reveals a man unfit to be king. Indeed, many people will find something they agree with in Prince Charles’s letters. Some of his warnings are prescient, and public reaction will not be a problem, since he already has the reputation of an opinionated, harmless meddler.

The 30,000 used to run past my doorstep when I lived in a dodgy block of  flats near Tower Bridge, which did make nipping over the road for milk quite a challenge. And I’ll never forget the year we stood on the final corner outside Buckingham Palace, where we saw one stricken runner lifted to his feet by fellow competitors, who carried him 200 metres over the finishing line.

i Editor's Letter: Welcome back Nigella, defying the haters

I was cheered to hear that Nigella Lawson is returning to our screens, her first solo cooking show here since the agonisingly public breakdown of her marriage to Charles Saatchi – and the drug revelations used to try to trash her character. All for the crime of being grabbed by the throat, remember.

i Editor's Letter: Most powerful woman in British politics
