Letter of the week: 'Majority of country would love to see the back of the Royals'

Prince Harry talking to runners at the Quayside in Gateshead taking part in the London Marathon for mental health charity Heads Together earlier this year. Our writer, however, doesn't think the prince and his family are worth their while to this country.

Have your say

At last one of the Royal family has come out and said none of them wants to be king or queen.

He obviously doesn’t understand what he said, because the majority of this country would love to see the back of them.

What he means is they still want the palaces, the crowns, the fluffy pillows, the comfy chairs, and the endless holidays. Can you see them giving that up?

What Harry means is he wants the holidays, the jewels, the houses and the cash.

What he doesn’t want is the press following them asking awkward questions like, when are any of you going to get a job, and stop living off the taxpayers.

Well, he’s started the ball rolling, I for one applaud him for that.

Ged Taylor,

Sunderland.
