Celebrating a marvellous 90th birthday today!

Good interview.The Duke isn't an ordinary 90 year old,you rarely find them so sharp and active.
Loved the "Bunny Hugger" bit....he is right on that too.The man is a gem!!

He has said that he is going to scale down his public duties and take life more gently, but it's all relative.

The Duke is great!

Isn't it a pity that the likes of Sarah, Duchess of York garners much more comment for how not to behave, than a Prince that has achieved so much and spent his life in support of the Monarch.

Much has been made of his 'gaffes' but I find them wonderfully un-PC in such a PC world. I think my favourite is when he was attending the Independence ceremony of a former British colony in Africa. Just as the Union Flag lowered, he lent across to the new President of the country and said "are you sure you want to go through with this?" - Absolute classic Duke of Edinburgh!

LOL.  The Duke is now enjoying one of the benefits of age.  In his youth, such comments would be considered rude or abrasive.  But coming from a wise older man, they are considered charming, like the mutterings of a beloved old grandfather.  I find them delightful...

Hear Hear Hear!!Agree completely.That that pork of york thing generates more comments shows the idiocracy of the days we live in and the sort of people that have been produced old enough to hype-up anyones PC if you're game for that....Never!... ::) in relation to what is really worth while and just hyped-up nonsense about a creature that isn't worth a penny...oh...no pun intended... ::) ;D

That interview was really amusing; he won't talk about himself, beyond plain statements of fact, and just batted all the questions back.
