I COULDN’T agree more with the letter from Peter Rickaby (The Yorkshire Post, October 24) referring to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
As we are all aware, the death of Harry’s mother was a tragedy, but perhaps it may help him if he gave a thought to many other people in a far less privileged position to himself who have suffered a similar loss, maybe with no help whatsoever.
My first husband died with tragic suddenness when he and I were 29. My son was three but fine “in the head” and it affected him for the rest of his life. It was a full year before he stopped asking questions regularly. Sadly he died seven months ago from cancer. Had he been a “Royal”, his condition may have been detected sooner – who knows?
Thankfully my daughter wasn’t really badly affected as she was a tiny baby, but it troubled her very much later.
As a woman of the world, Meghan must surely have had more than a good idea how her life would be as a Royal.

THE displeasure about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stems from the fact that they’re obsessive attention-seekers – but only on their terms. I suggest they both get proper jobs.
