Sir: Suzanne Moore ("The Windsors still don't understand us", 3 September) doesn't know that "the future king cannot even put his arms around his young sons". I am sure that in private he will be doing all that he can to comfort his children, but what Suzanne Moore demands is a public display of emotion, denying Charles the option of grieving in his own way.

What kind of callousness drives her to forget that, whatever his position, Prince Charles is still a man who can only feel things the way he does? Where is her compassion? Or does she reserve it for those who satisfy her own notions of how emotion is best expressed?
