OPINION: Throwback fuss over Royals in ads

The Lord Chamberlain’s office. The very name conjures up images of aged clerks on high stools. Certainly not the place to judge whether or not the Countess of Wessex, now being paid to brush up Rover’s fusty image, should be featured in an ad. Thank goodness the Committee of Advertising Practice also believes that, in these days of worldly Royals, such an anachronism should no longer be getting in the way.
