PRINCE Philip dropped yet another clanger by asking a 55-year-old what she had done in the Second World War

WW2 vet age gaffe by Duke of Edinburgh | The Sun |News|Royals

A mistake many of us have made, I am sure!

My favourite is still the Rev Spooner who once spoke to a former student and asked "Was it you or your brother who died in the war?"
How boring without Prince Philip.

Talking

The Duke is reported to have struck up conversation with a guest at a recent Buckingham Palace garden party by asking what he did for a living.

Duke of Edinburgh makes yet another gaffe - Telegraph

The designer whose beard earned the scorn of the Duke of Edinburgh has come forward – and admitted that Philip may well have been right.

The story with the designer and the beard. I can't help myself but I had to crack up if I imagined it. I love Philips humour.

Love it! Love it! Love it! Philip has a great sense of humour. And he's so energetic for his age.

I just showed the video to my husband, who said, "There's a man who's comfortable in his own skin."

yes, she also makes the video so cute by jumping when seeing Philip.
I also think that the main reason he stopped is because he has an eye for pretty women, he might have ignored a male journalist

Going on his record you could be right. Then again, the temptation to just "hang around" and wait to see her reaction is vintage Philip.

I bet is now in his own personal collection of "Gottcha!!"

In looks and in what he says, Prince Philip reminds me so much of my own father. At age 90, dad finds it even more unneccesary to use his "mental filters" and our family lore is rich with dad's "pronouncements" and "observations". While they might not be often politically correct, I don't think they are ever meant to be hurtful and I wouldn't call them "gaffes". Neither the Prince nor my father are bothered by criticism of their style, hence they continue to speak their mind, to the delight of almost everyone. Prince Philip has such a genuine personality and I adore him, just as I do my dad.

I don't think that in this instance he meant anything, the press is harping on about his past not pc remarks. Obama met the PM, Cameron, Russians and Chinese...... in other words many people and Philip asked if he could tell them apart (so early in the morning, perhaps jetlagged).
