Sir: 'Here is the stuff of which fairy-tales are made,' declared the Archbishop of Canterbury at the Royal Wedding in 1981. As I look around me at Britain in the 1990s the headline of a Midwestern American newspaper at the time of the Queen's coronation comes to mind: 'Wake up, Fairyland'.

Yours sincerely,
