News Corp Europe correspondent Stephen Drill has spoken with Sky News about Prince Philip’s famous stoicism and humour and his capacity to move past difficult life circumstances.
Mr Drill said “there was a lot of talk about his gaffes, but I don’t know if they were always gaffes. I think sometimes he threw a few of what would now be considered politically incorrect comments out there just to shake things up”.
“He was also always known as somebody who could ease a room.”
Prince Philip was the world’s longest serving consort and was married to Queen Elizabeth for 68 years offering his life as one of service and duty.
