Dozens of weekly public engagements, patronages, decorated military service, untold charity work and a lifetime of public service until he retired at 98. Husband of a great Queen who steered her country through a world war.Sad for those close to him. 99 is a fair innings. Now perhaps you'll tell us what were his extraordinary contributions?
Better era? Like WW2 etc?
From all accounts he was a genuine war heroSad for those close to him. 99 is a fair innings. Now perhaps you'll tell us what were his extraordinary contributions?
Better era like women in kitchens and doing the ironing, segregation etc, punishing the homosBetter era? Like WW2 etc?
Anyway RIP Phil the Greek.
A silly bugger really. Said some stupid things at times. Maybe bored with his life long role of following Liz around & opening flower shows etc.
Thankfully Liz wasn't as crazy as him.
He had quite a varied service record in the Navy during World War II.
Her reign has coincided with a period of unprecedented imperial decline, with emphasis on an increasingly glaringly obvious archaic tradition that makes less and less sense in modern society and the modern state of the United Kingdom.Husband of a great Queen who steered her country through a world war.
I think by most people’s metrics, a bloke with a DFC and bar is a war heroI've got a DFC and bar in my sock drawer that my great uncle won, nobody calls him a war hero
