The stiff upper lip

The stiff upper lip – it’s a phrase synonymous with Britishness isn’t it? Like warm beer, strawberries and cream it is part of our British identity.

And sometimes it’s useful. In the face of adversity it pays to have a stiff upper lip, or a poker face. But keep the mask up for too long and you will lose a bit of your true self.

Prince Harry’s admission that he’s turned to counselling to help him overcome the death of his mother will have given people across the country permission to get the help they need.

It was a brave step to take. I salute him for it.
