Given his health, we knew it wouldn't be long. Still, I'm sure it is devastating to his wife. Godspeed, Phillip.

Well played, sir.

He had probably had enough of this bull**** anyway.

Re: Prince Phillip has sailed..

At times over the years, the Prince’s cringe-inducing comments had a naive charm. Other times though, they were less "endearing dad-joke", and more "incredibly racist grandpa”:

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

“We don’t come here for our health. We can think of other ways of enjoying ourselves," he told journalists in Canada in 1976.

"If it has four legs and it is not a chair, if it has two wings and flies but is not an aeroplane, and if it swims and it is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it." when he addressed a World Wildlife Fund meeting in 1986.

"Aren't most of you descended from pirates?" he enquired to an islander while in the Cayman Islands in 1994.

"Yak, yak, yak; come on get a move on." he shouted to the Queen who was chatting, from the deck of Britannia, in Belize in 1994.

"How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to pass the test?" he asked a Scottish driving instructor in 1995.

"You managed not to get eaten then?" the Prince asked a British student who had been trekking in Papua New Guinea, in 1998.

"Do you still throw spears at each other?" he asked a group of Indigenous Australians in 2002, while on a visit to Australia with the Queen.

RIP Prince Philip.

He was quite a likeable, loveable character and always seemed to be supporting of the Queen in her role . May he rest in peace.

Re: Prince Phillip has sailed..

It is impressive that a British man who was on public assistance all his life and who never had a job can live to be nearly 100 years old! That could never happen in a lot of other countries and is a testament to the strong social safety net. Of course having some family money helped too, no doubt.

Actually he was Greco/English and came from an impoverished background but I guess it's easier to be an ignorant knocker of someone who worked extremely hard through his life and sacrificed a lot for his adopted country..

I believe the correct term is “relatively impoverished” since there was enough money to send him to the most elite of boarding schools. And to maintain a residence in the south of France....

I also do not consider traveling the UK and the world on the government’s dime to stand around in a suit cutting ribbons to be extremely hard work. You might do so, but millions of folks who go to bed hungry and exhausted from their labors might not.

Then again compared to Andy Capp, another famous Briton subsisting on the taxpayers money, he did do a lot of volunteer work. And sometimes he was nearly as funny!

However he did excel in the one job he did have: providing a male heir and a spare. After accomplishing that, what was his function for the people of the UK? Ceremonial ribbon cutter and greeter of foreign politicians? Brand ambassador for the defunct British imperial project?

Could you let us know all about the sacrifices he made too? What exactly did he give up to marry the Queen of England?
