Watching the Royal Wedding makes me think about the children that might be a product of it. I think that Prince William and Kate should break from tradition -- as they have in other ways -- and show support for the state sector by sending their children to the local state schools. Here are my top four reasons:
1. Their children would get a better education at the local state schools: teachers are better trained and have livelier lessons than in the private sector.
2. Their children would get to know the local community (wherever that is!) and feel a genuine part of the country, rather being isolated in a gilded cage.
3. Their children would be happier at a state school and not suffer the horrors that we know Prince Charles and others endured at their horrific private schools.
4. It would send a powerful signal to the rest of the country that the monarchy are keen to be "in touch" with the people.
