THE Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently on “parental leave”, according to their website. Er, leave from what exactly?

I’m no fan of this rather spoilt pair, who appear to want all the glamour of their privileged position, without the graft.

But I wish them well in the new chapter of their lives as a new family of four following the birth of their daughter, Lilibet Diana.

And I was impressed by the couple asking well-wishers to support organisations helping women rather than send gifts.

It strikes me that new parents can be a bit greedy these days, what with baby showers, gender reveal parties and endless gifts.

I hope the Sussexes’ gesture inspires others to consider charity donations to celebrate their new arrivals, instead of party-poppers and piles of presents.
