Curiously Inquisitive, Honest, Excellently Outrageous Comments by Prince Philip:

To an Aborigine in Australia:
"Do you still throw spears at each other?"
To his wife, the Queen, after her coronation:
"Where did you get the hat?"
When asked if he would like to visit the Soviet Union:
"The bastards murdered half my family."
To a Briton in Budapest:
"You can’t have been here that long – you haven’t got a pot belly."
To a driving instructor in Scotland:
"How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them through the test?"
To a student who had been trekking in Papua New Guinea:
"You managed not to get eaten, then?"
To Elton John after hearing Elton had sold his Gold Aston Martin:
"Oh, it’s you that owns that ghastly car – we often see it when driving to Windsor Castle."
To the President of Nigeria, dressed in traditional robes:
"You look like you’re ready for bed!"
To ex-chancellor Kohl of Germany:
"Thank you for the welcome, Herr Reichskanzler!"

Hello Herr Braun:
What is there to say? For our part, we should give them all an hour to pack a suitcase, a ticket for the undergound and let them loose, on foot, at the top of The Mall.

But we may not be typical!

From my perspective in Austria I envy the British their monarchy, but I can relate to your exclusive, non-conventional views: to propagate a monarchy in Austria may be as futile and outré as being for its abolishment in the U.K.

As Dávila noted: 'The majority is *always* wrong!'
