And this from The Telegraph -
Quote:
A spokesman for Buckingham Palace denied that the Duke had been rude to the music and television promoter, who has amassed an estimated fortune of 112m through shows like American Idol, The X Factor, and Britain's Got Talent.
"The Duke of Edinburgh categorically did not call Mr Cowell a sponger. He has no reason to. He has said he does no know enough about Mr Cowell to make any sort of comment about him," he said

Simon Cowell ... what can I say.

I like the thought that the Duke did make the remark indeed

I love this picture. I know somebody who used to work in the factory.

It's actually the sort of umbrella HM regulary uses, the border colour of the umbrella matching with her outfit

And another person in the talkshow, claims that the Queen ignore and did not even know who Mr.Cowell was. She shook hands and smiled with him. What else would he expect? And moreover, the Queen has many duties to perform, how can she have time to look and know about each single artist on the earth. I think these people just did not have much things to do around, and bring up nonsense things over, they should have just left Her Majesty and His Royal Highness alone. The couple had done their bests over the year, and who know how many years would they have left, to be commented all over the times about these issues.
