Readers’ letters: Keep prince out of public’s view

I was appalled to see Prince Andrew taking a public role in leading the Queen in a tribute to her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

There is no place left in the public domain for Prince Andrew as he has been deleted from royal duties – he would do better by becoming a total recluse well out of the public eye as the British public have no wish ever to see him again.

Assault at Oscars an outrage

Can I start by saying, I’ve never watched a full Oscars awards ceremony programme, as it’s full of pampered souls who cry at the drop of a film clip.

However, Will Smith’s assault on compere Chris Rock was outrageous – and he shouldn’t get away with it.

Smith complained later that the pressure of being famous made him act that way – what rubbish. Real pressure, Mr Smith, would be on those who serve your food in $500-a-plate restaurants, or those who dig the garden of your luxury mansion, or the poor immigrants who wash your expensive cars.
