Hi-vis jacket for a 'junior royal'

Published 11/09/2013

I MUST fully support the actions of the police in apprehending the lesser-known royal, Prince Andrew, in the gardens of Buckingham Palace (News, September 9).

It cannot be an easy task readily discriminating between protecting legitimate members of the royal family enjoying a relaxing stroll on the one hand, or detaining dangerous foreign jihadists and home-grown lunatics, on the other.

Unlike his esteemed elder brother, Prince Andrew is not particularly distinguishable in any shape, way, or form.

May I politely suggest that he now be issued with a high-visibility jacket emblazoned with 'Junior Royal' on the reverse.
