Prince William is to be made a Royal Knight of the Garter today. Can I just say that this is an example of an entirely pointless waste of time, energy and money? The only point of it, if there is one, is to enshrine the idea that a highly questionable line of sucession actually means something. Oh, and a few extra visitors to Windsor are very welcome.
Next time my units calculator allows me, I will raise a toast to Michael Hastings, who it seems to me, really should be receiving the accolades.
