Prodigal Prince


SIR – Dr Tony Saunders (Letters, February 2) implies that Prince Harry should be welcomed at the Coronation as a prodigal son.

The point of the parable, as made clear in the Gospel of St Luke, is that the wayward son recognised and acknowledg­ed the error of his ways:

“Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.” In this way he earns his father’s forgivenes­s.

Regrettabl­y, the Prince has shown no sign of contrition.
