We have homeless on the streets, we have three food banks supporting working poor, we have underfunded schools who cannot properly support pupils including those with special needs, we have many families with no secure decent accommodation, we have doctors surgeries whose systems restrict appointments, we are witnessing the closure of support agencies for older people and the disabled, we have lost many libraries, we have a local bus service that is not fit for purpose, we have a train service that is a laugh.
Now we are expected to doff our cap to the scions of obscene vast inherited wealth who will waft in and out of our county and maybe make some random charitable gestures. The only the reality they are likely to come up against is a pothole or two. At least some other European royalty manage to live modestly and not rub their subjects' noses in their extraordinarily privileged lives.
You couldn't make it up - and this on a day that a thousand head teachers demonstrate in Westminster to desperately try to protect their pupils' futures.

We have beggars in the streets with homes in Landport, we have fag-smoking wide-screen tv owning families taking advantage of free food, and people who abuse the NHS with trivial problems.
Now we have a visit from a very well respected royal family that give pleasure to millions of people, without expecting any subservience in return. Have a great day.

My first reaction on hearing the news was to wonder whether I might be able to get to see H&M.

Are the royals responsible for the financial crisis? No, so I don't see why Tom is linking the two.

I'm disappointed with this post, I thought we were actually getting the H&M Store. Still better they come sooner whilst they're still together eh ? And avoid the Cuilfail and Dartford !

I have taught my grateful wife and children with Biblical authority the position of the Royal Family in God's blessing upon England. I have read to them the Forty-Fifth Psalm: "Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty. And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee. Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows." We are blessed to welcome such anointed people as Their Royal Highnesses even though they will not visit Lewes on this occasion.

I'd dare any of you who have made the more frankly offensive remarks to repeat them to any of the troops led by H!

And if your going to pretend you served in a conflict, as if that's going to add any weight to your Sun Says beliefs, you really should have picked one you won.

Wasn't Harry the gunner in an Apache? So his job was sitting in a helicopter more or less invisible to radar some fifty miles behind the front line hiding behind a hill clicking on buttons to blow things up with fly-by-wire missiles? Apache gunner is about the safest job you can do in the army, I don't believe any of them have ever been shot down. Add to that the convenient leak after he'd been there for a weekend meaning he had to come home again and his "Tour of Afganistan" looks less dangerous than his forthcoming tour of Peacehaven.
