Prince Philip on fine form
Prince Philip remains my favourite royal.
“The Philippines must be half empty – you’re all here running the NHS,” the Duke of Edinburgh told a Filipino nurse during a visit to Luton and Dunstable Hospital, where he opened a £5.5m cardiac centre.
The 91-year-old royal, who called himself “the world’s most experienced curtain puller”, was said to be in a “jovial” mood during the visit and asked when the hospital would get a helipad to save him a journey by car.
via BBC News – Prince Philip cracks Filipino nurse joke.
I am imagining the conversation at a dinner party with the Prince, Boris Johnson and Silvio Burlesconi.
