I think you've got it right there, Artemesia. Prince Philip, Prince Consort.

If that is the case, it's a tad mean of HMQ to make him wait 65 years!

I think either this (Prince Consort) - or that we on the Forums are being used to pre-hype someone else's bit of PR.

The logical assumption, I suppose, would be that the DoE is essentially withdrawing from public life with William picking up the slack.
If he were ill I don't think they would tweet a "tckler" like that and then announce it on their anniversary!:(

I'm thinking its something to do with his official duties or it could be the title of Prince Consort.

I guess this is the "big" "news":

"I'm proud and delighted to announce publication of new book Prince Philip Wise Words and Golden Gaffes. "

Well that was 'big'. I doubt Philip will ever see the title Prince Consort.

If this comment is directed at me, then why? A PR firm is hardly going to release information on Philips title, is it? Considering it's a firm that has previously released a Philip book, it wasn't going to be that big.

I wasn't directing anything at you, Lumutqueen. I just thought the palace was going to announce something about his royal duties or whatever.

So much for "big news" then. Good PR move though.

In regards to the Prince Consort title, wasn't it reported that, after the Government advised the Queen against pushing ahead with Prince of the Commonwealth title for Prince Philip, he himself declined The Prince Consort one, stating he had enough honours as it is?

I'm glad I was way off base with my speculation about the 'announcement'.

I don't see the Queen giving Philip the 'Prince Consort' title at this stage. I think if that was going to happen it would've done long before now.

The fact of being married for 65 years is a huge milestone today. Unfortunately it is a seldom anniversary as people are going to get divorced or one part has died. I hope for them they will have a great day with family visitors and a big cake for Elizabeth and Philip. May they be happy, healthy and may they have much fun for the rest of their lifes.
