Prince William condemns the ambush and killing of park rangers.


https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/202...-killing-park/


Quote:
The Duke of Cambridge has condemned the “horrendous” attack that killed at least six park rangers in Africa’s oldest national park.
The rangers were killed as they guarded endangered species from an armed militia at Virunga National Park, a two million-acre reserve in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The Duke, who as president of United for Wildlife has worked with park director Emmanuel de Merode, has warned about dangers to rangers from poachers.
He said on Monday night: “The horrendous attack on staff at the Virunga National Park is abhorrent and I condemn the actions of those responsible in the strongest terms.
“Rangers who work tirelessly to protect both the national park and the neighbouring communities should be honoured not attacked. They should never find themselves in a position where their lives are on the line.”

For consistency sake it would've been better had they either not used any titles (for any of the gentlemen mentioned in one sentence) or used titles for both (even though the prince normally doesn't use it in his professional life). So, let's fix it:

I don't think he uses it professionally as you say. I've read a few interviews with him over the years (this massacre is far, far from the only one horrifically) and most publications don't use it whilst addressing him.

Nor does he use it on his social media.

I imagine using a Belgian title in the Congo might be considered impolitic? Although it's pretty obvious just from his name. Or maybe he simply prefers "Dr".

To me it was all about the inconsistency within one sentence... Even though I understand that William normally uses his title and Emmanuel doesn't.
