I don't want to debate the merits of royalty, but I don't think it's fair to characterize him as having done relatively nothing. He was in the British Navy from 1939 to 1952, and fought in all of these WWII battles:

Battle of Crete
Battle of Cape Matapan
Allied invasion of Sicily
Operation Dragoon
Operation Robson
Operation Lentil
Battle of Okinawa

Anyone who served in WWII deserves mad respect in my opinion.

I'd also guess Phillip is in the top 1 per cent of humanity in the amount of time he's devoted to charitable causes.

And the guy's legendary for his quips.

When a man opens a car door for his wife, it's either a new car or a new wife.

How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them through the test? (To driving instructor in Scotland).

Do you know they're now producing eating dogs for the anorexics? (To blind woman with a guide dog).

I declare this thing open, whatever it is.

Well, you didn't design your beard too well, did you? (To designer Stephen Judge about his tiny goatee).

I had mine stay for almost a year. Even a big house is not big enough. I do appreciate them helping out with my wife while she wanted her traditional foods and post pregnancy things.

Very sad if true.


Is that like the Rowan Atkinson phishing scam or whatever it is going around?
