LETTER: The royal precedent

Click to follow
From Mr Anthony G. Meadows

Sir: Why does David Aaronovitch say: "Charles is not just a troubled prince, but a modern male, confused, upset, clumsy, uncomprehending - as emotionally retarded as the rest of us" ("Another ripping royal yarn", 16 November) when, for years, reports on the lifestyles of Charles and Diana have shown them to be different in outlook and temperament?

The royal couple, like many couples I know, have reached a stage of unresolvable incompatibility, but this does not necessarily mean that Charles, or any other modern male in a similar position, has the inadequacies Mr Aaronovitch describes.

Yours faithfully,

Anthony G. Meadows
