Prince Philip Opens Mouth and Inserts Foot

by DavalosMcCormack on July 31, 2009

The UK newspaper, The Guardian, has a great section called “Did I say that?” in which it highlights things people really did say but probably wish they hadn’t.

Here’s a few excerpts from Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth’s husband.

On age

We shall all be old one day – provided, of course, we can avoid being slaughtered on the roads or beaten up by some hooligan in a peace demonstration (1970)

To a blind woman with a guide dog

Do you know they have eating dogs for the anorexic now? (2002)

To his wife after her coronation

Where did you get that hat? (1953)

I met him once when I showed him around a new housing estate. He was a lot of fun and the old folks loved him. Your quotes are fairly mild – he’s said a lot worse! Comments about slitty eyed people etc. What’s more, some troofers think he runs the world (with others in the Bildeberg Rroup) and that he killed Diana.
