Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

(1921– )

Prince Philip


Visiting an Australian university during a royal tour in 1954, Prince Philip was introduced to a “Mr. and Dr. Robinson.”

“My wife is a doctor of philosophy,” explained Mr. Robinson. “She is much more important than I.”

“Ah, yes,” replied Prince Philip sympathetically. “We have that trouble in our family, too.”
