Organic farming, one of Prince Charles' greatest passions, has been challenged by none other than his own father Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Well that's the most unwise thing to do : contradicting someone of your own family, especially when this one is regnant. What was Philip thinking ? That's a quite clumsy and I believe it will please the anti-Charles and anti-RF to show another example of discord and lack of cohesion.

IMO, those who back Charles stance on organic farming and those who have any interest at all in sustainability of organic farming, will just put it down to someone of Philips age being 'out of touch'. I don't think many people here take offence at what he says, they just think silly old codger!

I support organic farming and I am a "tree huger", but I have to say Philip does have a point (sort of). I doesn't have as high yield as those that use GM, and chemicals. And its not always a option (yet) everywhere. Organic foods cost more, and much more labor intensive to produce. And even if something is grown organic if it's not sold local then its still bad for environment becuase of all emissions and energy gone into transportation.

I don't really see what Philip said as challenging organic farming, just more questioning it (does that make sense?). Charles doesn't strike me as someone who just except something is the right thing because he is told it is, I see him as someone who as asks questions, I guess it is something Philip passed on to his son

Have people been watching the 2 part ITV documentary on Prince Philip shown here on Mon and Tue night? Would be great to hear reactions. Philip certainly comes across as a thoughtful and diligent consort, who has spent a lifetime in support of the monarch.

I think he is as astute as his wonderful wife, but these days he likes to play with our heads big time playing the pre-dementia card and getting away with saying all sorts of things of outrageous things that he has probably wanted to say all his life but wasn't allowed to.

If I had to define him further I could only say "Denny Crane"! What a hoot! The man is crazy like a fox!

I think you are right - whilst Philip has always spoken his mind, I think he probably just does not feel the need to be that guarded in what he says any more!! I thought it was hilarious in the way he kept swearing at the horses in the old footahe of him competing in a carriage race!

Hes no shrinking violet and he can be extremely thorny at times, cultivating a grumpy image.

Grumpy old sod. There's truly no need to act like a child, walk off and sulk.
