Time to end this right royal charade | Letters


If the Queen doesn’t write her personal speech and is now not in a position to learn it (Report, 9 Could), isn’t it time to cease the charade and name issues by their correct names?

We should sever the monarchy from the political system: a democratic crucial that’s centuries overdue.
