The Duke of Edinburgh asked a sea cadet if she worked at a strip club, according to reports Prince Philip had joined the Queen on a visit to Wyvern Barracks in Exeter on Thursday when he asked Elizabeth Rendle what she did for a living. The 24-year-old, a member of the Barnstaple Sea Cadets, told him she worked in a nightclub. Philip, 88, then asked if it was a strip club, before joking that it was "probably too cold for that anyway", she told The Sun. The incident was the latest in a long line of Royal gaffes by the Duke. He once told Paraguayan dictator General Stroessner: "It's a pleasure to be in a country that isn't ruled by its people." He also dashed a 13-year-old boy's ambitions when he told him: "You're too fat to be an astronaut." And he once told a group from the British Deaf Association who were standing near a band: "Deaf? If you're near there, no wonder you are deaf." In 2002, Philip asked an indigenous Australian: "Do you still throw spears at each other?" The same year he asked a driving instructor in Scotland: "How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them through the test?" Back in 1986, he commented to a group of British students in China: "If you stay here much longer, you'll all be slitty-eyed."
