That was actually my initial thought. Something about the smile, and the angle on his head in the photo.

Some pictures posed below of what Merca was mentioning, Prince Philip showed up with a black eye and tried to hide behind sunglasses (the first sign something is wrong). The question is how did he get that black eye???

The pictures were taken at a memorial service for those who lost lives in Battle of Balaclava, on the 150th anniversary of the Charge of Light Brigade, in Crimea, Ukraine.

Here are a few articles on the supposed reasons for Prince Philip's black eye...funny...:)

First Article

Who Philled you in, Phil?
By VIRGINIA WHEELER

PRINCE Philip sported a nasty black eye yesterday - leaving everyone asking: Who filled him in?

The Duke was at a ceremony to remember the Charge of the Light Brigade - but he seemed to have been in the wars himself.

And as onlookers racked their brains to think of a culprit they were spoilt for choice.

For blundering Philip, 83, has been putting his foot in it for 50 years, insulting people all over the world.

The gaffe-prone Duke tried to hide his shiner behind dark glasses in the Ukraine yesterday.

Palace officials claimed he had poked himself in the eye in the bath.

But there was a long line of other possible suspects:


Line up ... so whodunnit?


THE QUEEN - because her hubby spends all his time carriage-driving with gorgeous Lady Penny Romsey, 49, his sporting partner for 20 years.

So was this some right royal revenge?

PRINCE HARRY - Charles's 20-year-old lad can be a bit of an oaf.

He left a photographer with a cut lip last week after four hours boozing in a nightclub.

Did he take a pop at the Duke too?

A CHINAMAN - Philip caused outrage in China in 1986 by telling British students there not to stay too long in case they developed "slitty eyes".

Was justice sweet (and sour)?

AN INDIAN - Prince Philip angered Asians at an Edinburgh factory in 1999.

He saw a fusebox and said: "It looks as if it was put up by an Indian."

Did they refuse to put up with him?

A SCOTSMAN - in 1995 the Duke suggested Scots are alcoholics.

He asked a driving instructor in Oban: "How do you keep the natives off the booze enough to get them past the test?"

Did he drive one to the limit?


Second Article

Self-inflicted shiner restarts the debate over duke's well-being
By DAN MCDOUGALL


Key points

Prince Philip apparently slips in bath and gets black eye
Declining health of Duke possible reason for injury
Still makes pilgrimage to site of Charge of Light Brigade

Key quote
"This was simply an accident. It looked so bad because when people get older they tend to bruise more easily - he said it did not hurt." - A spokesman

Story in full THEY have traditionally provided reclusive Hollywood stars with a shield from the cruel glare of the paparazzi and allowed humbled heavyweight boxers to mask the true extent of their wounds, but few would ever have expected the Duke of Edinburgh
to hide his face behind thick black sunglasses.

Looking more like an ailing prizefighter after his latest bout than a senior member of the monarchy, Prince Philip sported the unorthodox eyewear yesterday as he carried out a state visit to the Ukraine to pay homage to the British soldiers who fell at Balaclava during the infamous and doomed Charge of the Light Brigade.


Sporting a painful black eye for the third time in four years, after reportedly slipping in his hotel bath and catching the side of his eye with his thumb, the prince’s own war wounds appeared to attract more attention than an impressive re-enactment to commemorate the 150th anniversary of one of the bloodiest defeats in British military history.

With royal aides quick to play down increasing talk of the duke’s ailing health and continued struggle with arthritis, a palace source revealed the prince, who had been staying in a luxury suite at the Oreanda Hotel in Yalta, had slipped in the bath and inflicted the wound on himself.

A spokesman said: "This was simply an accident. It looked so bad because when people get older they tend to bruise more easily - he said it did not hurt."

Speculation that the duke's health was declining began several years ago after he suffered a series of falls, blamed on worsening arthritis. During Christmas 2002, he was spotted going to church with what looked like black eyes and a cut nose. Palace insiders later revealed he had fallen down a flight of stairs at Sandringham but got up unaided. His health was called into question again last year as it emerged he had sought advice from one of the country's top prostrate cancer specialists.

Appearing at yesterday’s memorial service for the British dead of the 1854-6 Crimean War, the prince joined descendants of the courageous British cavalrymen, who charged into the infamous "Valley of death" on October 25 1854, to face a murderous hail of Russian cannon and rifle fire.

He was joined by retired and serving members of the Queen’s Royal Hussars, the King’s Royal Hussars, the Light Dragoons and the Queen’s Royal Lancers who had also flown into the Ukraine for the historic anniversary. According to National Army Museum
records, of 673 men who charged on the strength of a mistaken order, 110 were slaughtered. In one of the biggest blunders of British military history, the Light Brigade was destroyed as an effective fighting unit.

I have a very unusual question, but I will ask it anyway. Was the Queen ever photographed while pregnant with anyone of her four children?
