I know this is a page about HM. Jewels, but it has some classic Phillip comments he made yesterday- right now I need all the laughs I can get-
From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: Bank of England

How did Coutt's become the royal bank of choice over the Bank of England? Was it due to crisis years ago? It just seems to me the the B of E would be the bank of choice for the royals.

The Bank of England is rather like your Federal Reserve, one doesn't open personal bank accounts with a nations central bank which controls a nations monetary policy and sets interest rates.

Yes, but I think at one point, they depended on each other. For some reason they parted ways. I am sure there is an interesting story there.

I bet Philip was like that when Anne got engaged.

My favorite quip from Philip about Anne is "If it doesn't fart or eat hay, she isn't interested." That's priceless.

In other words, a horse. That's just hilarious! His darling girl really does have a horse face!

I really think Philip was referring to her love of horses and riding though.

Well, I think he captured his daughter's love for horses and riding rather well here. This man does have a way with words. It's not always pleasant, but almost always spot on.

That he does, and that gem is one of my all-time favorites!

It does make a lot of sense, him not wanting to go. He is the one they had to use to identify the remains of the skeletons they found and to sort out if the impostors claims were true or false.

"Anyone concerned about their dignity would be well advised to stay away from horses."

Looking at Ethiopian art-
"It looks like the sort of thing that my daughter would bring home from school art lessons."

This is my sentiment when I'm looking at modern art. Reminds me of the stuff my pre-K kids come up when finger painting.

That pretty much sums it up. Philip doesn't mince his words, so when he says something, it may not always be pretty, but it will be spot on. I have a feeling this was another case of such. I do give the man credit for saying what he thinks, political correctness be darned .
