Make of it what you will ..... Elizabeth was advised by ..... advisors?! ..... not to marry Philip - because he was too funny!

Prince Philip's most amusing remarks amid retirement news | Daily Mail Online

'I declare this thing open, whatever it is': The gaffe-prone Duke who often said what he shouldn't (although the public loved him for it)

Whatever one may think of him the DoE is one of the last real exponents of how silly (and dangerous!) political correctness is.

I find most of his remarks rather amusing.

The man is a walking history book.

I like Prince Philip's humor and jokes, even if it could be insulting. He is a strong man, a rare breed in today's society.

He does have a very one of a kind humour. Very dry, rather dark. But he has said stuff that is borderline offensive. Cannot laugh about a comment about ''slitty eyes''.

Philip is Philip. Totally unique unto himself. He's got a quick wit about him and just a way of endearing himself to people.

Age hasn't dimmed his appreciation of a good looking woman either. One of my favorite Philipcisms is on seeing a young lady dressed in a red dress with a zipper on the front, he stated "I'd probably get arrested if I unzipped that".

I love Philip's wit. He is a man comfortable with himself and doesn't bow to political correctness. When asked a question he will answer and not lie. One of the last true gentlemen of a different era. If he offends some people, shame. Maybe those same people offend him [or even all from my generation] He is not going to change at 96 because some have tried to change how we should think. Not a fu-foo politician. I absolutely love him for it.

commenting on his own retirement
'Sorry to hear you're standing down, sir.' 'Well I can't stand up much longer!' Prince Philip, 95, seals his retirement in typically humorous style as he prepares to end 70 years of royal duties

Ha, yes, just read it on twitter! I think he took advantage of the possible misuderstanding: maybe the other person meant "stepping down"?
