Straight to the POINT


RIDE through the pearly gates, Prince Philip, with your four-in-hand. AMANDA YATES, newcastle upon tyne. WHAT many may see as an intense focus by the media on the death of Prince Philip is actually crucial in stabilisin­g the future of the Royal Family and the monarchy. IAN STEPHENSON, Alness, Ross-shire TO LEAVE flowers outside royal properties after being asked not to is the height of selfindulg­ence. A fitting tribute would be to make a donation to one of the 800 charities that benefited from the Duke’s patronage.

VALARIE YOUNG, dover, Kent.

I WOULD love to see a pair of statues of Prince Philip and the Queen outside Buckingham Palace. It would remind future generation­s of their love for each other. BRIAN SCOVELL, Bromley, Kent.

IF ONLY the political elite had one iota of Prince Philip’s patriotism, loyalty, duty and dedication to Britain.

R. MARSHALL, sheffield.

PRINCE Philip had an incredibly amusing and droll personalit­y. Will his type of humour ever be allowed to flourish again in our dull, politicall­y correct world?

TED SHORTER, tonbridge, Kent. THE Duke of Edinburgh’s been much lauded for his warmth, stoicism and grin-and-bear-it attitude. What a contrast to the self-pitying whingeing of some of the younger generation.

RON HILL, Weymouth, dorset.
