So Prince Charles has warned the RSPCA of his intention to withdraw royal patronage from the charity unless the RSPCA withdraws its opposition to hunting.

Perhaps the charity should point out to HRH that it would be sheer hypocrisyfor him to remain as patron and it would be preferable for them to find someone more genuinely in tune with animal welfare. As a supporter of the RSPCA, like the majority of people I deplore the hunting of animals for pleasure. It seems all Charles has achieved is to show how out of touch he still is with ordinary people and to make himself less popular as heir.
