WOULD it be too much to ask the media to slow down on the wonderful run-up to the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, whilst many young people are, at this moment, packing for Afghanistan, with their kith and kin worried for their future?
Another thought running alongside this is when are the royal princes, both military officers, going to do a little soldiering?
Many years ago, a very disabled King Richard III, the Hunchback King, died in battle.
How times have changed.
