From: Brian H Sheridan, Lodge Moor, Sheffield.

MY first reaction to your report that there was rivalry between “fans” of the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex 
was that some people really 
need to get a life (“War of words at Palace as ‘fans’ talk up a storm”, The Yorkshire Post, January 29).

The Yorkshire Post says: Hello to kindness as Royals make social media stand over Kate and Meghan abuse

I mean, it’s not as if they were football teams, is it?

On reading further, however, it transpires that some of the social media messages have been abusive to the point of being threatening.

Unlike their detractors, 
the two young women in question do not have the 
luxury of anonymity, even if 
they were inclined to join in 
with these feeble-minded 
sorties.

They have weighed the inconvenience against the privilege of buying into the life they have chosen, and are conducting themselves with charm and dignity.

It has long been a vain 
hope that the shocking 
license afforded the social 
media might be reined in but, at the very least, as your accompanying Editorial asserts, offenders should be named and shamed.
