SIR Eric Howells’ letter (May 10) lamented the fact that Prince William was not sociable when living in Wales.

He was of course posted there by the military to do a job of work. He is not the Prince of Wales with that attendant duty.

Regarding the Prince’s wife being photographed topless, some papers will print anything, not the Western Telegraph I hasten to add.

I wonder at Sir Eric raking this up.

Why is it necessary for him to ask if the Queen “is the end of the line”? Is he being hopeful?

In fact, Prince William has done his duty and provided two more already.
