"This important one is the son of Harry and is a Mountbatten-Windsor"  a touch of Game of Thrones don't you think.

Doesn't really compare with "Queen Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lady of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, Lady of Dragonstone, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons" though!

Hello all,

Yes, a pleasant afternoon at Windsor and nice to see a familiar face!

I was sent because the BBC has so many outlets interesting in the Royals that the specialist Royal correspondents don't have the bandwidth to serve them all.

So I did BBC News Channel, some radio, BBC Focus on Africa, BBC World and BBC Arabic!!

But enough of work - now back to the trains!!

Cheers

Ben

Absolutely!

And now Danny Baker has been fired (for a second time, no less) from R5 Live for tweeting an inappropriate (allegedly racist) tweet.

When will broadcasters learn to internalise their own jokes, keep their mouths shut and their fingers off the keyboard?

it's just not politically correct now to joke that the baby was like a monkey (even though Harry said he already had some facial hair and was pleased, apparently, by that), but in the olden days (pre-internet) somehow it was quite acceptable and humorous to suggest that Princess Anne's baby had four hoofs (the horse connection - in case you didn't get it). Nobody got mortally offended in the 1970s by that, and no-one lost their job - mind you we did have some very dodgey TV in the 70s and 80s!
