The Week In Radio: Put in the picture by a revealing royal appointment

The Art of Monarchy on Radio 4 began with a small black-and-white photograph. In it was a two-year-old girl standing in front of a large ivy-smothered house and staring daggers at the camera. In the background an elderly lady, whom you presumed to be her grandmother, looked benignly on. The date was 1927, the girl was Princess Elizabeth, and the photographer was her father Bertie, the future King George VI.

Ruck and Maul: Food for thought for Wasps as Cipriani gets out of the

Wasps are not quite sure how to handle Danny Cipriani. The boy about town was due to take part in the Investec Cooking Challenge at the restaurant Venturi's Table in Wandsworth tomorrow. But the sponsors had to issue an apology: "Danny has been asked to cancel all public appearances and focus on his rugby. The matter was out of our control." Coming off the bench as a late replacement in the kitchen is Toby Flood, Cipriani's rival for the England No 10 jersey. Yet earlier in the week Wasps, announcing that their Heineken Cup match with Leinster on 17 January would be at Twickenham, were happy to promote Cipriani as a walking billboard. "In the weeks leading up to the game we'll have Danny fighting in the clubs and streaking in the streets to get as much publicity as possible," Tony Copsey, Wasps' chief executive, said. "He's taking the game to a new market. He's a celebrity foremost, a rugby player second."
