I can't tell if those are supposed to be his eyebrows or eyelashes in the cartoon.  It really is a lovely image, though.

Love PP's bushy eyebrows in the cartoon - and they got his nose down pat.

I watched three different programs on PP last night - on two different PBS stations. One part was especially amusing - at least to me:

PP was being interviewed in 1995 about WWII for the 50th anniversary of the war's end.

Interviewer: Can you tell us what your emotions were when you were were under attack?

PP: NO!

PP did go on to extrapolate that you did not have time in such circumstances to reflect on one's emotions!

Anyway, it put me in mind of most of the WWII vets I've known. Their answers would have been the same. I can imagine my Dad if I had asked him what his feelings were when his carrier was sunk and the Japanese were strafing the survivors in the water. He already thought me a ditzy teenager by that point . . .

What a wonderful excerpt of a speech.
He is one man whom I wish did a sort of autobiography, its clear he had many stories to tell, and retold them with humour.

When he looks down in the video, I'm reminded of how much Charles resembles him. To me Charles is very much Windsor, so noting that was nice.
Philip's sense of humour doesn't seem too far removed from that of William's, very dry, almost self-deprecating.

I'd settle for some diary excerpts. He'd never have done an autobiography (see the above mentioned self depreciating wit) but his diaries would be a treasure trove.

PP about the protection of nature in French interview. His French was very good, I don't even hear any British accent.  Thumb up
Too bad there's no English subtitles for this video, it could have more widely shared if so.

He seemed to despise the sort of navel gazing it would have required. He did author / co-author many books during his lifetime and contributed to another until he became too ill to continue.

The birth-certificate of Prince Philip, in Greek




You may notice the Windsor Castle in english - it is mentioned where Princess Alice was born.
It is also mentioned, among other things, that Philip's godparents were HRH Queen Mother Olga and the Corfu's local authorities!!!! (I'm not sure I understood correctly this part, because of the handwriting)

The document is signed by the mayor of Corfu in November 3rd, 1921.
The newborn baby was presented to the priest who documented the birth in  October 24th, of that year and he was born in May 28th - according to the previous Julain calendar. So, I suppose that all the dates in the documents are in accordance with the julian calendar.

Andrew is trash. This isn't about him, he should accept the palace decision on this.

That's ridiculous  Real mad

So the family has to (a) deal with their very personal grief, which is such a hard and exhausting thing, (b) walk through this grief in the public eye, (c) in fact offer comfort to the country, and (d) deal with this pig-slop.  At this point I shouldn't be surprised by his self-absorption and tone-deafness, and yet, once again I am.  

EDIT:  When I was clicking on the link and wondering what his demands were, I really expected it to be a demand that Fergie attend as his plus one.
