The Wisdom of Prince Philip
Prince Philip - or to give him his proper due, His Royal Highness the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich, Knight of the Garter, Knight of the Thistle, Order of Merit, Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire, Knight of the Order of Australia, Companion of The Queen's Service Order, Privy Counsellor - is a gentleman of such standing and wisdom, he deserves nothing less than this hardback book of wit, commemorating his magnificent 96 years.
This compendium of quotes compiled by Anthony A. Butt, accompanied with fantastic illustrations by Oslo Davis is jam packed with laughs. 112 pages of the Prince's finest wit, including "Oh no, I might catch some ghastly disease." when asked if he wanted to stroke a koala on a visit to Australia, will have you chuckling from the first page.
Other gems include... "I wish he'd turn that microphone off." when expressing his opinion on Elton John's Royal Variety performance in 2001. And "Bugger the table plan, give me my dinner!" at a dinner party in 2001.
This humorous little peek into the life of the much loved Prince Philip is a wonderful tribute to the Royals, and a charming secret Santa gift!
