Hi Andy,

I understand where you are coming from, but maybe consider that Ken did not
mean any slight - I read "continue to have a mild case of COVID-19" as
compared to the alternative, where it develops into something more severe.
Also Prince Charles was at least born in England, maintains an English
residence (Clarence House) and would largely rule from England (London)
if/when he ascends to the throne, thus the association of "English" (to a
non-UK observer) is not so far fetched. However technically you are of
course correct :)

(And yes, I know that nit-pickers does have a hyphen...)

Regards - Tony
