THE King in his capacity as an English country gentleman has set an excellent example to his neighbours. Whatever objections may be raised elsewhere to women’s work on the farm, it is welcomed at Sandringham. And Sandringham is not a place to be entrusted lightly to inexperienced hands. When the late King Edward VII was Prince of Wales, it earned a reputation for livestock which has never been diminished. The recent prize list at the Royal showed that King George is worthily following in his father’s footsteps.
