I am posting a link that gave me quite a laugh.  It is not meant to be offensive or start a flame war.  It's just humour. :D

A very remarkable 85 year old.   

I think history will see Prince Philip as, at least, as important as Queen Victoria's consort, Albert.

Indeed--despite coming in as a VIP that is still a rough trip for anyone, let alone an 85 year old. Much is said about the Queen's longevity and good health but Philip seems to be doing well. Didn't he only give up polo a few years ago?

His last year playing polo was either 1970 or 1971.

See, just a few years ago.  ::) I don't know what I was thinking about there.

Anyway, he does seem to enjoy very good health.  :)

I admire Prince Philip. What a position he has had as number 2 always to his wife, The Queen. He has been a wonderful support for so many years. I for one see him becoming frail and it is sad. I am not looking forwad to the day when he surely must depart his earthly existence. I know later this year in November his Diamond Wedding Annniversary with The Queen will be a happy occasion. Not many couples make it that long.

I hope he is worthy of his 86 years of existence. He married Elizabeth knowing quite well what his secondary position would be. His support of his wife is known only to her. It is true that their marriage has continued, though they were hardly in a position to discontinue it; sometime along the way it appears they reached an understanding.

I continue to have an issue with the manner in which Prince Phillip bullied his most sensitive children, Princes Charles and Edward. And I doubt the debacle of the Charles & Diana marriage would have occurred--or at least been quite so calamitous--had Prince Phillip not been such a dour and verbally abusive parent. Also, anyone who has followed the British royals knows that Prince Phillip has not been the best of representatives and that he has all-too-frequently made questionable if not outright damning statements. At this point I wish him well primarily for the sake of his wife and family and because I am aware that maintaining one's well-being at the age of 86--even for one as cossetted as he--has its challenges.
