I WAS not too happy with Jayne Dowle’s column headlined ‘Royals’ mental health website is waste of money’ (The Yorkshire Post, October 10).
In particular, her reference to “Prince Harry’s savage attack on the Press which has left many of us wondering whether he has still got work to do on himself to come to terms with the tragic death of his mother Diana”.
Still got work to do? I should think he has. What a patronising thing to say. From my own experience, bad things that happen to you in childhood never leave you and I don’t blame him at all for defending his wife. After all, you can hardly expect him to stand idly by to watch a rerun of what happened to his mother.
The Press has a problem. It believes it has the absolute right to attack people, but holds its hands up in self-righteous horror when they strike back. I remember my grandmother used to say ‘Don’t dish it out if you can’t take it’.
Thankfully, mental health is finally being given the credence it has always deserved.
