“Spirituality, intimacy with other people and animals, yoga and meditation” could be important adjuncts, as could “a warm hand, an acupuncture needle and a crystal,” he said.

He said that he considered it important “distinguish between my private person, on the one hand, and as a member of the royal family, on the other”and expected his personal opinions to be treated as his own “without others having to vouch for them”.
