Sir: The Princess of Wales, mother of a possible future king, died on Sunday. It is now Wednesday and still there has been no word to her people from the present Queen.

Whether or not the Royal Family choose to preserve a rigid reserve - because it "dare not weep" - surely a simple personal message from the Queen transcends choice and is what should be expected of her as monarch and as a human being?
