SIR - Your occasional pro-Royal correspondents who inevitably provide amusement and light relief to the rest of us mere mortals will, no doubt, be as intrigued as our brave men and women serving in dangerous overseas postings to learn that Prince Harry, left, (who is apparently a soldier) spends his weekends blasting live birds out of the air for amusement and showing the same sensitivities in this respect as his dad and granddad.
