Please note that I posted the picture because it captures the love, regard and concern PP had for his wife, whatever the occasion. This is a thread about PP.

The leader of Ireland's Sinn Fein party has today apologised for the 1979 IRA assassination of Prince Philip's uncle Louis Mountbatten.

The IRA, of which Sinn Fein was once the political wing, killed Philip's mentor as part of the decades-long conflict waged between Irish republicans and those who wanted Northern Ireland to remain in British hands.

Mary Lou McDonald's comment came the day after the husband of Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest, following his death at the age of 99 on April 9.

Gemheal, I am glad that you like the picture of Prince Philip's sisters. I like the hat and gloves that Princess Sophie is wearing.

There is a petition for a Prince Philip statue that has received over 10,000 signatures.

"The Duke of Edinburgh served our country for 78 years, serving 13 in the Royal Navy & then 65 as Britain's longest-serving consort, including 22,000 engagements & supporting 780 organisations.

We say there should be a prominent statue of the Duke in London to recognise the above, as well as his great personal dedication and support to Her Majesty the Queen

I had occasion to remember Philip last week in a way that made me smile, and I now have a new habit that will remind me of him frequently.

I was participating in a Zoom meeting and my laptop was misbehaving and I couldn't click off easily at the end.   So I just shut the lid of my laptop in the manner I had heard Philip used to do.  Worked a treat!    And I thought, 'what a smart man you were!', and I smiled.

We are on the topic of Phillip’s death.  Should you wish to charge headfirst into Irish politics, perhaps start another thread. Or, there are many boards devoted to it, so please enjoy those.

Meanwhile, back to the Royal Consort, if we may, in the thread created to acknowledge his death.

I read that there is great support for that statue of Philip so I wouldn't be surprised if it happens. IMO he was such an influential consort - on the same level as Albert - so it's only right to give him similar recognition.

"Across a flying spell of 44 years, Prince Philip flew 59 types of aircraft and logged almost 6,000 hours, with his last flight recorded in 1997."

That in itself I find remarkable.  More information about his flying achievements here: https://airlinegeeks.com/...f-edinburgh-dies-aged-99/
