IT’S a tragic tale of two princes.
Both suffered enormous personal grief after the death of their beloved mother.

Both endured the intense spotlight that came with a public life of privilege.
Both grew up in a family environment lacking emotional support.
The revelations in his memoir Spare and across two TV interviews last night are like the desperate spewings of a low-rent celebrity.
Sex, drugs, family fights; nothing has been spared in this horrifying Hollywood over-share.
Meanwhile, the newly installed Prince of Wales remains silent.
How he must be champing at the bit to have his say and refute the apparent nonsense claims of his brother.
But, however tempted, William cannot bite.
He knows a public slanging match is beneath him — and the last thing the Royal Family needs.
Though nothing, it seems, is beneath his brother.
RISHI Sunak refused to admit yesterday that the NHS is in crisis.
It’s plain to anyone unlucky enough to rely on health and social care services that it is in yet another severe mess.
The Prime Minister’s attempts to bang senior NHS heads together ended with a pledge to buy up private care home places to clear hospital bed-blockers.
That means spending yet another £500 million on what can only be a temporary sticking plaster.
Predictably, the Left began to howl in mock horror.
But would they really rather have a wealthy man join a doctor’s surgery queue ahead of a less-well off pensioner, rather than pay for care if he can afford it himself?
Sooner or later the country is going to need to have a grown up conversation about the future of the NHS, rather than ideological trench wars.
It’s the only way out of perpetual crisis.
WILL the real Sir Keir Starmer stand up?
First, the man who proudly voted for Remain and vehemently campaigned for a second Referendum says he’s a born again Brexiteer.
Yesterday the Labour leader who once said he would ban outsourcing in the NHS now says he’s in favour of private solutions to social care.
Starmer boasts he is an Arsenal fan.
But he changes his political clothing so often don’t be surprised if he pops up one day wearing a Spurs shirt.
