Hypocrisy Or Not!

Personally I do not have a problem with Charles shaking the hand of Mr Adams, we must do what we can to maintain peace.
Now I am not a royalist, in fact the day the royals are removed from their over privileged status all well and good, but if we for the time being have them then they should set a good example and treat one and all equally.

That being the case why then did this stuck up upstart brush aside and totally refuse to shake the offered hand of a man who fought for Queen and country and lives out his remaining years in a wheel chair.
