Sir: Speaking as a staunch republican, I wholeheartedly endorse the call (letter, 24 October) by Donald Foreman, secretary-general of the Monarchist League, for the European Union to adopt a royal as its figurehead.

Given that the European Commission in its present form is wholly undemocratic, unrepresentative and unaccountable to its citizens, it seems entirely appropriate that it should be headed by an unelected monarch.

Yours faithfully, PAUL A. BRYAN New Barnet, Hertfordshire 24 October
