IF ever there’s a royal hatch, match, dispatch or scandal I keep the television and radio off for at least two weeks.

I still get my Northern Echo but remove all pictures and reports of the above at the newsagents and put them in the rubbish bin.

I will never understand why people are so wrapped up, crazy and mesmerised by royalty. They are just ordinary people, like you and I. They strut around pointing at things in their bizarre, expensive outfits looking as though they have a nasty smell under their noses. I wish they would clear off to the South Pole and stay there. Good riddance, I say to them all. I, for one, will not be watching on Saturday.
