Phil the Greek in hospital

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.

I'll have a tenner on Phil choosing to peg out on Mar 7th- as a final broadside.

Or...trhat will be the date of the send-off.

Hope Im wrong on both.

Apologies for not having read through this thread, but I’ve just popped in to point out I’m fed up of watching whiny media types moan that Charlie Drove to the hospital to visit his dad.

Even my simple maths skills are good enough to understand the drive Charlie made during lockdown is a much shorter trip than the media types above made when they travelled from the U.K. to the USA to cover Biden’s inauguration.

And, especially do for the Beeb journos who felt the need to send staff to the USA despite already having a full time set of news staff on site who work for the American Beeb channel.

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

I remember the last time he was ill, people on here had the "inside gen" that Operation Fourth Bridge had been called.

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.
 
Update on Phil. Is it all a subterfuge to lure the Ginger Prince back to the UK so he can be rescued from the cult?

'Prince William revealed his grandfather is “OK” as the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh spent a sixth night in hospital in London.

'The Duke of Cambridge said medics were “keeping an eye” on Prince Philip after he was admitted to King Edward VII’s Hospital last Tuesday. “Yes, he’s OK, they’re keeping an eye on him,” William, 38, told journalists with a wink while visiting a vaccination centre in eastern England.

'The Sun reports that Prince Harry called the Queen from LA to ask about his grandfather’s health and reportedly quarantined himself in preparation to fly back to the UK by private jet should his grandfather’s condition worsen.'

Something dignified

From the article:

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.

Is 'for almost a week’ something more than a 'for a few days'?

Just by chance - I stumbled upon this a few minutes ago:

Prince Philip Saved Us from Dying

In January 1945, Roy ‘Gus’ Halliday and Petty Officer Norman ‘Dickie’ Richardson, his rear gunner, ditched their Avenger bomber, its wing on fire after a dog fight with the Japanese, in heavy seas off Sumatra.

Wearing only inflatable life jackets, the two men and a third crew member were facing death. Then came rescue in the shape of the Destroyer HMS Whelp, whose First Lieutenant was Philip Mountbatten (now Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh)

Dickie, who sadly passed away earlier this year, vividly recalled the day when Prince Philip’s quiet heroism in the British Pacific Fleet saved his life.

“I pulled a dinghy out of the aircraft, but it didn’t inflate” said Dickie. “‘Gus’ had skilfully flown us back towards the fleet before we were forced to ditch but relying only on our Mae Wests to keep us afloat, we were in a pretty dicey situation.”

Luckily, HMS Whelp was less than a mile away, close enough to put down a boat, although they had great difficulty getting it away in the strong swell.

“As the ship’s boat came alongside, Prince Philip was at the rail looking over” said Dickie. “He welcomed us aboard and took us down to his cabin where he lent us towels and dry clothing for us to wear. I remember he a framed photograph of his sweetheart, the future Queen Elizabeth II on the table in his cabin.”

“As a serving officer with the British Pacific Fleet, and before that in the Mediterranean, Prince Philip gave great service to his country. He was very well liked and set a great example to us all” said Dickie.

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.

Hmm, an infection that wasn’t Covid related.

Good man:salut:
 
As always, the journos seem to be having their own competition to report the most trivial things about HRH being in hospital to fill air-time, while at the same time desperately wanting to be the first to announce his death.

That seems just the same as this site.
 
I’m staying up tonight.
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?

Im sure I've read somewhere that a senior royal's death would not be announced at say 02:37 on a Sunday morning
