Prince Philip: I Know I am Rude, But It is Fun: The Royal Family and the World at Large – as Seen by Prince Philip

At the age of twenty-one, Prince Philip wrote to a relative: I am rude, but it is fun. Prince Philip probably never managed to change the opinion of his relative… This affectionate compendium brings together both the best and a host of less well-known stories about the prince, giving an insight into the royal world where he traipses around as ‘fella belong to Mrs Queen’, rather than being professionally qualified in something . From Prince Philip s blunt speech-making, to his fearless mocking of officials and captains of industry, to his fond teasing of Her Majesty herself, here is a truly regal celebration of the unusual daily life in royal circles.
