Oh no, Prince Philip has made a royal faux pas yet AGAIN.
Queen Elizabeth II’s husband made headlines last week when he told a photographer to hurry up and “just take the f***ing picture.”
Now, the 94-year-old has done it again during a visit to the Chadwell Heath Community Centre in London alongside his wife yesterday afternoon.
Many readers took offence when Prince Philip was speaking to a group of female nurses at the centre and asked them, “who do you sponge off?”
ITV News quoted Nusrat Zamir as saying, “We’re all married, so it’s our husbands.”
The nurse explained that Prince Philip was “just teasing and it’s similar to what I call my husband – the wallet.”
Prince Philip is famous for making inappropriate comments when on Royal outings. While many people view him with the same eyes you would the lovable grandad you can’t bring anywhere for fear of what they'll say, many others feel that as a senior figure of the monarchy, his comments are not acceptable.
Here are some of the Prince’s most outrageous comments to date.
1. An event for The Battle of Britain. Prince Philip tells the photographer to "take the f***ing picture."
2. On a trip to China in 1986, the Prince told a British student that if he stayed there much longer, he'd "go home with slitty eyes."
3. In 2002, he asked and Aboriginal leader, William Brin, in Australia if the aborigines "still throw spears at each other?" Mr Brin replied saying, "No, we don't do that any more." When he was asked about the incident Mr Brin said that while he was "quite surprised" by the question, he found it very funny.
4. When Prince Philip met the President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjoy, Mr Obasanjoy was in his ceremonial dress. The Prince remarked on this saying, "You look like you're ready for bed."
5. When Ashely Banjo's dance group Diversity won Britain's Got Talent in 2009, the Prince did it again by asking the multi-ethnic group, "Are you all one family?"
6. When speaking to Lord John Taylor of Warwick – a Briton of Jamaican origin – the Prince asked, "What exotic part of the world do you come from?" To which the Lord politely replied, "Birmingham".
7. When Prince Philip visited the Cayman Islands in 1994, he somewhat surprised the natives by asking, "Aren't most of you descended from pirates?"
