I heard from him this evening, he wishes to pass on his thanks for all the kind and moving comments, they have been read out to him by his detectives and amused him greatly , however just to put your minds at rest, he plans to outlive you all, and will be passing on a list of forum members to his team , so if you get a nice invite to a ceremonial occasion at the Palace, be sure to make out your will beforehand, just in case the sword happens to slip, as he remarked, it can happen so easily !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.
Walked in unaided you say? Yes, and with a jaunty pace I bet, making some funny but racist remarks to anyone of colour along the way
It's also reported he's only there for 'observation and a rest'. Charlie popped in for a little observation of his own I suppose and to make sure he was resting and not running around the place causing trouble.
I'm sure he'll be out tomorrow and will probably insist on driving himself home.
Either that or they'll announce his passing.
IF he did drive himself home The beeb would think the world had ended, and would show back to back ‘protect and survive’ ads.
Laura K would orgasm herself to death.
Beth Rigby would die of over excitement
Robert Peston would bore himself to death with a slow drawn out tirade
and Sky news HQ would explode and fly into orbit.
Overall, the notion of an elderly man driving himself after surrendering his license would just be too much for many British media types.
'Prince William revealed his grandfather is “OK” as the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh spent a sixth night in hospital in London.
The Palace said at the time that the Duke was expected to remain in hospital “for a few days of observation and rest”, but he has now been there for almost a week.
Hmm, an infection that wasn’t Covid related.Just did some Google Fu to see how the old boy is. Apparently he had an infection, and he'll be a few days yet before they let him out. Though he is apparently looking forward to getting out. I bet he is and giving the doctors what for till they give in.
You probably all know this already but us expats don't. Glad he's feeling better.
Apparently they are pleased in Oz as well.
Buckingham Palace has provided an update on the health of the Duke of Edinburgh, after his son, Prince Edward, claimed the 99-year-old is "looking forward to getting out of hospital".www.9news.com.au
Happy to be corrected but- isn't there some protocol that a senior royal's death will not be announced until a time that falls within whatever time certain publications would need to get it onto their front page news?I’m staying up tonight.
