Sir: For the first time I feel a republican. We are told that the announcement of the royal separation was timed as it was because of the imminent end of the royal princes' school term. But everyone has known about this for a long time. To make the announcement four days before the Princess Royal's marriage was insensitive. To take the Prime Minister's eye off the ball two days before the Edinburgh summit was unforgiveable.

Yours faithfully,
