Time for a thread of their own perhaps?
It was the only way it could go.
The Duke of York's interview with the BBC was so appalling there was no way the Queen's second, and supposedly favourite son, could continue in public life.
Trying to clear oneself in the court of public opinion is never a sound idea; the next interview the Prince gives should be with the FBI.
Everything in the statement that has now come should have been said in the hour-long interview.
The gravity of the situation has hit home at Buckingham Palace.
The Duke said he asked the Queen if he could step back from public duties, but whether he made the decision or it was forced upon him, it was the only way forward for the Royal family.
The Royal family's brand has been deeply damaged across the globe by one of its most senior members.
