There are some shocking pictures here of the statues being topped.
Statues toppled and defaced
There is great anger over the treatment of indigenous people in the past, and rightly so, but is this the way to deal with it?

Princess Anne was President of Save the Children between 1970 and 2017 and is now Patron. She was well known for turning out to events when invited so in that regard was responsible for many donations. If she was going to attend an event, more people would come and it was much easier to sell tickets because of her presence.

There is an encomium on the SC website detailing the nature of her work with the charity.

So you sit with them every day to see what they do? There may be a lot more involvement than just visiting.

How do you know RF work hard?

This tell you.
