The most scandalous statements of Prince Philip
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II of England, announced his decision to retire. Since September, he has been relinquishing all royal duties and will no longer be involved in public affairs. By the way, in June he turns 96 years old, so he has the right. The only thing we wish is that we will no longer hear his caustic jokes, for which he wears the nickname of "prince of oversights" and is constantly ridiculed by the British press. Let us recall those that have become a real nightmare for Buckingham Palace and forever entered the list of aphorisms.
