The Duke of Edinburgh has many talents, but it is his unique way with words that often receives the most attention. Whether it's women, race, religion or astronauts, Prince Philip always has something memorable to say. Here are a few of our favourites!
It's not unusual for the Prince to insult celebrities, in fact he's been at it for decades. The Duke has made a couple of comments over the years about the singer Tom Jones. Is it jealousy or is it disguised adoration? We'll never know. Here are two of our favourites:
“Do you gargle with pebbles to sing that way?”
“It’s difficult to see how it’s possible to become immensely valuable by singing what are the most hideous songs.”
We don't think Tom will be inviting the Prince any time soon to visit him in the green, green, grass of home.... California.
