Phil the Greek

The gaffe-prone Duke of Edinburgh (otherwise known as Phil the Greek) astonished gardeners at Chelsea yesterday when he stomped off after James Durie, designer of the Australian Garden politely corrected him on the identity of a palm. Prince Phillip, who has recently been exonerated of all blame over the possible assassination of Princess Diana, muttered "I didn't want a bloody lecture". Durie, with a restrained courteousness not usually associated with our antipodean friends, suggested that the Prince was merely a bit tired. So not the miserable old bugger that everyone else knows him to be then!
