Philip and the showgirl laid bare on stage: Duke's sensitive letters to star Pat Kirkwood to feature in controversial musical
Quote:
Prince Philip’s recovery from his spell in hospital is not likely to be improved by news that a series of highly sensitive letters he wrote to a stage and screen star are to feature in a controversial new show. The letters, all signed Philip and sent from Balmoral and Sandringham on his personal notepaper, were written to the late Pat Kirkwood, whose magnificent legs were once described by the critic Kenneth Tynan as ‘the eighth wonder of the world’. His correspondence — and Miss Kirkwood’s outspoken replies — which discusses Philip’s views on the coverage of his private life by the media, are to feature in a new one-woman stage musical, Pat Kirkwood Is Angry, starring leading mezzo-soprano Jessica Walker.

According to the British Monarchy Website, the next engagements of HM accompanied by the Duke are on next Monday in Aberdeen, so in the areas of Scotland.

Those pictures are not from today. They were taken 12 years ago, on March 3, 2000, during their visit to Coventry.

I thought HM looked a bit younger in the photos.

I thought it was a bit soon for them to have left Balmoral. Don't they usually stay there until October at least?

Yes, I realized that after I posted them I forgot to remove the pictures from this thread. I'll go do that now.

The number of times I've done that...
The dates on photo agencies websites can be quite confusing sometimes.

Yes, I figured out by taking a closer look at her hair. It's totlally white now rather than the grey.

Well there is always a first, HM could have dyed her hair! Just kidding. Although I do wonder if she ever has or if she has thought about it. LOL.

I remember reading her hairdresser saying that the Queen actually want to change the style of her hair but everytime she comes down to doing it, she chicken out.

Prince Philip will be going back to work, and perform 37 (possibly more) engagements in the next two months. According to the article, he's feeling much better, so I hope we don't hear about another hospitalizations any time soon.

I do hope they've at least made his schedule weather-dependent. I understand wanting to be of use, but he'll do no one any favors catching sick again. If they can just have a "if weather is bad, ceremony will be moved inside the town hall" or whatever, he can do his thing without endangering his health. The pace won't kill him, but the freezing rain might.

Even though he's a young 91, he can put a lot of younger men to shame. I think honestly if the DoE wants to continue doing engagements and keeping active, it'd do him much better than being made to succumb to the possibility of getting sick again. As we've learned, he does have a team of doctors near at hand and I'm sure they'll keep an eagle eye on his health.

When you think of the DoE, even the Energizer Bunny is put to shame.

I think Philip should do what makes him happy as well as healthy. I have a feeling he'd hate to stay cooped up inside, with an occasional walk, so going out and doing some work is probably something he's really looking forward to. Yes, the Energizer Bunny is a slow poke compared to the Duke. His Highness loves being busy and staying active, which is great for anyone of any age.
