Respect goes both ways


THE Duchess of sussex is developing an unnecessar­y reputation for challengin­g royal convention­s, which have stood the test of time for a reason.

At the weekend, it was revealed the sussexes’ neighbours – most likely without her knowledge – had been told not to strike up conversati­ons with them, ask to see their baby son or pat their dog.

Yet when it suits the duchess, she wants people to share her admiration for ‘ brilliant female change-makers’ in the pages of Vogue magazine.

A good relationsh­ip with the public is based on mutual respect and understand­ing – not just on her own terms.
