Queen undeserving of this contempt from Oxford students over portrait – Yorkshire Post Letters

From: Hilary Andrews, Nursery Lane, Leeds.

Queen Elizabeth II views a border in the gardens of Windsor Castle, in Berkshire, where she received a Duke of Edinburgh rose, given to her by the Royal Horticultural Society. The newly bred deep pink commemorative rose from Harkness Roses has officially been named in memory of the Duke of Edinburgh. A royalty from the sale of each rose will go to The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Living Legacy Fund which will give more young people the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

HASN’T our dear Queen had enough trauma in the last months without the University 
of Oxford removing her 
portrait in the name of Black Lives Matter?

The death of her beloved husband, the disgrace of Prince Andrew and the move of Harry and Meghan to the US, with all their subsequent accusations, is more than enough for our longest-serving monarch to 
cope with.

She has never shown any 
signs of being racist. Indeed she is beloved by the Commonwealth, most of whom are people of colour.

These students are a disgrace to our country. If they are, as they think they are, the cream of our young people, then this country is going to hell in a handcart.

MEMO to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex: The reason the Earl and Countess of Wessex are held in such high esteem is because they kept their heads down, when they, too, faced controversy and got on with the job of supporting the Queen.

They would also never do anything to embarrass Her Majesty – like using the 
Queen’s family name ‘Lilibet’ without first asking for permission.
