George VI should be on British cigarette packs to remind smokers he died from smoking?

The Guardian reports that
King George VI, who died
from complications from
smoking at age 56 in 1952, 
should serve as the graphic 
on plain packaging to remind 
people that even their King fell
victim to the addiction. George VI 
was portrayed in  the film "The 
King's Speech" and was a heavy 
smoker. He died of coronary 
thrombosis. Which image works 
best on a pack?
Matthew Weaver reports.
The Guardian: King George VI's image on cigarette packs would be a smoking deterrent...
