I liked him and his free spirit way of thinking, he was incredibly loyal to Elizabeth and worked tirelessly for the Monarchy, the UK, the Commonwealth, wildlife and youth, his legacy will live on for many, many years through the DofE Awards - the first time that I met him in 1976 at Buck House.

Great to get to Paddington, walk to a taxi and say “Buckingham Palace please”, the response was “inside or outside ?” In those days, taxis could go inside with the correct invite.....

Driving in made ME feel like Royalty with people at the gates taking pictures.... oh, if only they had known I was only there for a 1 1/2 hour meeting with him..,, (the first of many).

Great sense of humour and great at putting nervous people (including me) at ease.

He was a natural leader and a fantastic Consort.

RIP HRH, Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

His example of service throughout his life wil be missed.

Where are the mounted police? The dogs? The police in riot gear? The tear gas?

Sorry but I couldn’t stand the racist old bugger and if this offends I’m sorry but I’m offended by thousands of homeless dying on the streets along with millions of children going hungry due to the elitist system in the UK.

Probably not waring masks as most were obviously out keeping fit and just stopped off for a moment as they ran past.

The nice keep fit togs and particularly the footwear gives it away.

Nice that they can do that spontaneously as they pass without feeling that they ought to go home and dress appropriately for showing respects. Such an out of date idea, isn't it.

I do hope the remaining members of the Royal Family will follow suit.

This will get the Brit racists going on whether Megan should be allowed back in the country or not, they are already starting to appear on Farcebook. It won't be long before the gutter press join in.:crying:

Not a sad loss for those who felt, and often actually were, targeted and belittled or insulted by his remarks I'd guess.

Anyone less privileged than he was would never have got away with the stuff he came out with. The invitations would just have dried up.

Do you want to hear my Prince Philip story again which also includes drinking Pimms with a young Catherine Zeta Jones in a bikini? Its one of my favourites!

I raced against him at Cowes week in 1995. We even had a bit of a heated exchange over our right of way on more than one occasion. He had a full crew of fit young Navy types and we had a boat full of pissed up salty old sea dogs. A day that will stay in my memory so clearly for ever. It was the Sigma 38 class race and I felt a bit sorry for old Phil as everyone was going out of their way to carve him up. There was even a powerboat full of topless women sent out to distract him and his crew. :D He got more and more irate as the afternoon went on but the icing on the cake was when we finally beat him by a boats length at the finish line in front of the Royal yacht Britannia with several Royals and foreign royal guest looking on. :D That was Phils last race. He never bothered after that :D

The drinking with Catherine Zeta jones was by accident. Before the race we were about 100 yards off shore (scorching hot day) and I had ran out of **** and nobody had any so I swam ashore with a Tupperware box with a five pound note in it and bought some ****. On the way back I got confused and boarded the wrong boat only to be met by the one and only Miss (at the time) Jones and her celeb mates. Having explained the *** story she felt I deserved some refreshments. She must have regretted having to marry that old goat Michael Douglas having met the Tupperware *** milk tray man. Her loss.

Phil was a bit of an old racist but he was of his time and I quite liked him. RIP.

Too many idiots on there for me mate.
But you do get to read lots of information ( need checking) that you won't read in the British media.:nerd:

Yes how clean and pure must all our thoughts be today. Half of the Disney cartoons and Hollywood humour is now frowned upon in case some oversensitive minority group finds something to object to. I swear half the people alive today have no idea of mirth. OK it's usually at someone or something's expense but sticks and stones is still true in my book. We have all been the target of jokes at some time or another.

And no I don't want to get into another pointless BLM discussion before someone tries to drag that up.

Thank heavens for small mercies.......

That means I will never read the incredible truth about how the vaccines track you and contain microchips, or how the MMR vaccine causes anything from long hair to overgrown toe nails....

FarceBook's relationship with the truth is about as strong as the bond between a mouse and a hungry cat......

Twitter is written by twats and twirls.....

Instagram is only useful for junk pictures that are better placed in the filing system under "R" for Rubbish.

And TicToc is only there to feed the Chinese Government with more material that they can use to scare the West

I don't think there's much wrong with a bit of crude or off colour humour Ray. What is wrong is the causing of offence, especially in Phil's case to people who are not really free to hit back or even to tell him he's being offensive.
