THE new book detailing the breakdown of Harry and William’s once unbreakable bond makes for painful reading.
When the nation watched the two young princes trailing their mother’s coffin on that fateful day 23 years ago, we told ourselves that at least they would always have each other.
But we were wrong.
The brothers — once inseparable — are barely on speaking terms any more. And now Harry has traded in the family for the LA celebrity life, William has been left to shoulder the burden of royal duty for the next generation almost alone.
He and wife Kate have risen to the challenge admirably.
When the Queen was in isolation at the height of lockdown, he grabbed the baton for the Royal Family — joining in the clap for carers with his joyful young family and shining a light on the lockdown-induced mental health crisis in a powerful TV interview.
Then, when restrictions were eased, he wasted no time in getting back to work, giving the public much-needed reassurance that it was safe to do the same.
That is what duty looks like. But, more than that, he is demonstrating a love for our country and people which the vast majority of us will reciprocate.
It is desperately sad that our future king faces a life without his beloved brother by his side. And we empathise with the hurt he must feel at Harry’s actions: beneath the royal stiff upper lip, William is an emotional young man.
He has grown into a good leader helping his country face one of its darkest times, showing he cares and providing the reassurance politicians cannot.
He will make a fine king when his time comes.
SELFISH hypocrite Margaret Ferrier has disgraced herself, her party and our Parliament.
It is absolutely right that she can no longer call herself an SNP MP.
But we have a few questions for her nationalist bosses.
Why did the public not find out about her antics until Thursday evening, when SNP leader Ian Blackford knew on Thursday morning?
And why did the whip only get removed after the story went public?
We question, too, the byzantine Parliamentary rules delaying her expulsion from the Commons.
She has admitted to breaching the Covid restrictions in the most dangerous way possible; short of deliberately coughing on her fellow train passengers, her behaviour could hardly have been worse.
So why on earth must the House wait weeks for a determination that she has “broken the MP’s code of conduct” before suspending her?
Every day that she clings on to her whopping salary is an insult to the taxpayer.
