What has happened has happened, but what is important is that we learn from history, use it to better ourselves, use it to remedy the issues that once presented themselves and that once burdened us and tarnished our names.

The royals have turned a corner because the youngsters have been allowed to flourish. William in particular has shown humility, humour and a strong sense of direction. He has more than a touch of his mother about him, although is probably stronger in many senses. A lot of the important details people have remembered about the royals over the past few years have been down to him, and Wills has come a long way from his slightly nervous engagement interview with his friend and broadcaster Tom Bradby.

A Royal Pain in the Backside

Private Eye magazine got it right with their front-page headline, 'WOMAN HAS BABY.' Does anything more really need to be said? How much more can you say, really?
