In an extraordinary statement published last night (apparently in such a rush because details had leaked to The Sun) the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they wish to leave the Firm and become “financially independent” – which would be absolutely fantastic if we hadn’t just spent more than £2.5 million renovating their house and equally appalling sums on their wedding. One wonders if they might consider paying any of it back so we can spend such sums on mental health wards – which are grossly underfunded – or tackling the homelessness problem that almost everyone else is appalled by on a daily basis.
