Letter: Royals who deserve

A Scaled-Down monarchy is overdue (leading article, 23 November) but your descrip-tion of the Queen's children's achievements as "minimal" is a gross injustice to the two eldest.

I hope the respectable press will seize its chance to focus on the long-standing humanitarian work the Prince of Wales has devoted to his trust and Princess Anne to Save the Children. This should be easier in a slimmed-down, more open monarchy.

Then they may even gain the cliched term "caring", which Princess Diana enjoyed, partly through her skill in manipulating the press. If sincere duty becomes fashionable again, the core royals won't need our People's Premier to publicise them.
