I honestly don't have a problem with corn being in a food, just so long as it is not one of the *main* ingredients (serving as a cheap source of protein instead of using meat), and as long as my dogs have no known allergies to it. As long as it meets that criteria, then IMHO it is no better or worse than any other grain, and I see no reason to avoid it completely. I just do not want to feed any brand that uses it as a *filler* ingredient.
But as far as corn vs. rice vs. barley or whatever
, I think it just depends on which one works best for your dog(s). Likewise, grain free diets are not suited for every dog, either -- although I do personally like them for my dogs.
Just my two cents, and only because I think corn tends to get a bit of a bad rap.
I have not looked at Royal Canine's ingredients recently, but I have always considered it more of a mid-grade food. Could be better, could be worse.
But many dogs do seem to find it palatable.

It's freeze dried raw foods that comes in a powder and you just add water. All natural/organic. It is pricey, but my chui only eats a half a cup of it a day and a bag last's me well over a month and a half. It's well worth it.
