Royal “love child”

Dear Editor,

I was concerned about an article on the back page of the 11th April 2016 Correio da Manhã with regard to a “love child” born to Prince Charles and Camilla in 1965. He is named as Simon and the article says that he wants to be recognised by the Royal Family. What a lovely present for the Queen for her 90th birthday!

What really concerns me is that I had to read this in a foreign newspaper (to me that is), and not in any of the English press here. At least Simon can vote in the EU Referendum but, as a long term resident here in Portugal, my wife and I are not allowed to do, but that is another story.
