British royal family enriches the UK, just ask the Australians

Niall Fraser’s diatribe against the British royal family beggars belief (“Dying in a pit of its own making, the The West’s problems far outweigh ours in Hong Kong”, April 3).

It suggests ignorance as to the benefits the British economy gains from our royal family and our royal history.

Even Australia has shown in recent referendums that they prefer Her Majesty the Queen to be their head of state, rather than become a republic.

No doubt Mr Fraser is looking forward to Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn becoming our next prime minister, when Scotland will quickly call another referendum on independence from the UK and this time be more than happy to vote leave.
