On 4th May 2017, just over a month before his 96th birthday, Buckingham Palace announced that Prince Philip was to retire from royal duties in August. The news made headlines around the world and the outpouring of affection for the Queen's loyal consort was sincere and justified. During Her Majesty's 65 years on the throne he has always been at the Queen's side - and often a few steps behind - no one could have supported her better. Within hours of the announcement Prince Philip was doing what he does best - trying to see the funny side of life, even if it's at his own expense. Accompanying the Queen to a service for members of the Order of Merit at the Chapel Royal in St James's Palace, he was told by a guest - "I'm sorry to hear you're standing down." With barely a moment's hesitation Philip replied "Well, I can't stand up much longer!"

This book includes an unrivaled selection of the Prince's golden gaffes and wise words from his first public appearances as a Royal nearly 70 years ago up until his retirement this August. Including the rude, the controversial, the insightful and the downright hilarious, Prince Philip: A Lifetime of Wit and Wisdom is not to be missed.
