    ... you know it's either a new car.... or a new wife.



    Prince Philip, master foot in mouth specialist and all round Royal Solider, at last takes a back seat now.

    He's done loads. He's been everywhere. And he's done it while being the worlds most experience plaque-unveiler

    Cant help but laugh at some of these :)

    We don't come to Canada for our health. We can think of other ways of enjoying ourselves.
    I don't think a prostitute is more moral than a wife, but they are doing the same thing.

    The guy just has no filter. :p

    There is a theory which I fantasise is true: that prince Phillip makes all these gaffes deliberately to entertain the queen; that it is an inside joke they have with each other, because she always has to be so straight-laced and politically correct.

    I'd love to see the Queen lose her **** laughing, but I don't think it's on the cards.

    When you're someone like the Queen of England it probably helps to have someone there to break the ice and not take everything so seriously.

    His gaffs are just about the only things I don't hate about the royals, purely because of their comedic value.

    Republic!

    Agreed, plus he's a genuinely chill guy, or was the one and only time I met him. On his visit to India -- I want to say late-1990s -- he came to my school to meet "young leaders of tomorrow" or some such nonsense, but basically a small group of the older 11th and 12th grade kids. But my aunt was a teacher and she wanted me to meet the big man, so she arranged to pull me from some boring class and get me a handshake. Instead of explaining his title to me correctly, she said "he's basically the king of England." Excellent, I think.

    So we're all waiting in a room when this old suited chap comes in with two or three hangers-on and starts shaking hands. He gets to me and I shake his hand like "yeah whatever, dunno who you are, I'm here for royalty" and then my aunt says "this is prince phillip" or words to that effect. Without missing a beat I say in a shrill petulant child's voice "oh, where's your crown and cape?"

    The room barely had time to register shock because he just threw his head back and cackled with glee. I was SO confused, because the penny still hadn't dropped for me. I figured he was a stand-in or something. He was still cracking up when they hustled me out the room. Safe to say I'm not forgetting what a royal consort is!
