Prince Philip was a driving force in making ‘the Palace more modern and efficient’

Prince Philip had a “fascinating legacy” as he was gaffe-prone, environmentally conscious, and was the first prince consort since Prince Albert, according to The Washington Post Opinion Editor Autumn Brewington. “Prince Philip has a fascinating legacy just in terms of just a lot of times where he made headlines either for things that he said or he did he was surprising and sometimes offending people,” she told Sky News chief anchor Kieran Gilbert.

“When the Queen ascended to the throne in 1952 there had not another prince consort for about 90 years since Prince Albert in 1861, so this role was kind of thrown open to Prince Philip who was a naval warfighting offer, a real guy’s guy, and now in public, he was expected to follow his wife.” Ms. Brewington said Prince Philip was the first member of the Royal Family to go to a televised interview and a driving force to modernize the monarchy. “He was one of those who pushed for getting rid of introducing debutantes at court and tried to make the Palace a bit more modern and efficient.”
