Sir: A postcard from our daughter, who is in Tonga, shows some delightful photographs of the King of Tonga on a bicycle and in a skiff. The caption reads:

In his 70s His Majesty King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV is still athletic, exercising six days a week. He enjoys rowing at Queen Salote Wharf and cycling at Teufaiva Outdoor Stadium, Tongatapu. Approved and autographed by His Majesty.

Are there not some lessons here for the Princess of Wales and her advisers?

Yours faithfully,



17 November
