They must have a bit of software that adds it automatically or something.

Whilst it's good that Bassett was given Royal patronage I can't help wonder if the papers in Leamington Spa or Tunbridge Wells always add the Royal prefix.

Lol I was just being pedantic

But yes I hear you - the road signs in Malmesbury and around Bassett have been changed to prefix 'Royal' and even the newspapers do it on the property pages. Yes it's an honour but don't need it quoted in every reference to the town.
