Just seen the news as it came in on BBC.

Whatever people think of our Royal Family,and I do feel for them at this sad time, he was a husband and father and you could never call him dull.

R.I.P. The Duke of Edinburgh.

Married for 73(?) years. That's a merciless emotional hammer.

Throughout all of the recent turmoil, a person I have more respect and empathy towards, is our Queen. The Duke’s passing was inevitable, but the timing most unfortunate.

He was quite the character and, yes, he offended many undoubtedly, but I, personally found him rather amusing. A relic from a different time. His kind certainly won’t be repeated. Rest in peace, Prince Philip.

Rest In Peace. Big question online is if Harry and Meaghan will attend the service.

Well, it’s the Guardian. I found him amusing, personally; as did many in the receiving end.

No reason other than the fact that I knew they’d probably have the news bulletin before the others.

Lived through all those listed.. remember several,(raised in Canada, a lot more focus on the Royals there)

My top five from those .. in no particular order.

I declare this thing open, whatever it is." (on a visit to Canada in 1969).

"Just take the f***ing picture." (losing patience with an RAF photographer at events to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain - July 2015).

""If the man had succeeded in abducting Anne, she would have given him a hell of a time while in captivity." (On a gunman who tried to kidnap the Princess Royal in 1974).

Hilarious..
I always cheer on those about to turn 100.
Sorry he didn't hang on a couple more months to reach the milestone.

One story involving Prince Philip, possibly apocryphal, has circulated in Canada for years, though the reported locale varies. Apparently, many years ago during a Royal Visit, in a smaller town somewhere (north of Edmonton? The Yukon? Kenora?) the town put on a big dinner for the Queen and Prince Philip. Local folks were recruited to serve. After the main meal, as the story goes, a woman came to clear plates and, noticing that Philip had set his cutlery on his plate, removed his fork and put it on the table, saying ‘Save your fork, Duke, there’s pie coming!’ Reports were he was delighted! Welcome to Canada! grinning smiley
