When William is photographed on a sordid gay retreat on a secret sun-soaked isle. As a staunch republican I avoid anything to do with the Windsors but from what I have been unable to avoid I discern absolutely bugger all rapport between him and his wife.

A recent discussion regarding Eurovision led to
