The Duke of Edinburgh 90

HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of EdinburghHRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, is 90 today.

One of many quotes from the Prince consort:

I think it is a misconception to imagine that the monarchy exists in the interests of the monarch. It doesn’t. It exists in the interests of the people.
And another one:
If a cricketer, for instance, suddenly decided to go into a school and batter a lot of people to death with a cricket bat, which he could do very easily, I mean, are you going to ban cricket bats?
Yet another one:
Everybody was saying we must have more leisure. Now they are complaining they are unemployed.
Happy Birthday, Your Royal Highness!
