Prince's Kilkeel title shows fondness for our province

Editor's Viewpoint

The memories of the glorious royal wedding will take a long time to fade, but as life goes on, the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex will have to take up their everyday duties.

It is good to know that Harry is also Baron Kilkeel, which underlines Northern Ireland's place in the royal firmament.

He is not alone regarding his connection with a Northern Ireland location.

Prince William is Baron Carrickfergus and Prince Andrew is Baron Killyleagh. The affection in which this province is held among senior royals, and not least by the Queen, is a welcome constant in the current choppy political and constitutional seas.
