Phil the Greek in hospital

But he's the first husband.

Always liked him, speaks his mind, doesn't play too much politics, get well Sir.

Served his Countries, married top tottie, spoke his mind , pissed off 'Socialists'
discovered when to give up driving without killing anyone.

He will be dead in the next few days.
The World is a better place for him being here.
My thoughts now are with his wife.

Inevitably the Elizabeth era will draw to a close. It'll be genuinely strange for anyone under 75 to adjust to: my old man was 4 years old the last time anyone was referring to "the King" rather than the Queen. He remembers getting the first family telly to watch the Coronation.

We are, well us of that generation New Elizabethans, and stronger for it

'English' monarchs come, and monarchs go but, apart from the Cromwellan regicide, 'the Firm', in all its Danish, Norman, Plantagenet, Welch, Scottish, Dutch, German guises, has rolled on.

E2A; Godspeed, y'ol bastard, and thank you for all you've been and done, Sir.

Me also, came home from school and mentioned flag at half mast. My Mother replied 'The King is dead' and burst into tears. Three or four families crowded into our house to watch the coronation on our flickering b&w TV.

It's one of those things that you can't actually believe can happen. PTG is such a bigger than life character. We know it will happen one day, just like one day the lads will be referring to King's Regs. But when it does it's too big to take in all at once.
It'd be nice to see him get his telegram but if he has to go now I sincerely hope it's quietly.

Phil going quietly? I think your time in Iberia has had an effect. I do hope though, that when the time comes (which I suspect is imminent) it goes easily.

Caray. You are correct. Quietly no. Easily yes. I bet he's quipping with the nurses as the Valkieries ride in to take him home.

It seems as if all the experts on here have already decided Prince Philip is dead.

If it was really bad news I think Charlie would have spent more than 30 minutes with his father, HMtQ would have risked leaving Windsor to visit him and the rest of the Royals would be clearing their diaries. At the moment it appears it's business as normal. If PtG was that poorly, would he have walked unaided, as reported, into hospital?

If it is not good, watch out for Orla feckn Guerin being flown back to do the news bulletins with Clive mournful Myrie.

Or Kate Adie. You know things are bad then.

At his age it could be tomorrow, next month or in a couple of years. But it's not going to be that far off.
 
Will we get any public holidays?
He's not as frail as you so doubtful whether you'd still be around to enjoy one were there to be one when he logs off !
