Nice to see, not only something about the “private” life of Her Majesty, but also about Prince Philip — sadly cut out of this picture — who I find both interesting and admirable. Nephew of the late Lord Mountbatten (last Viceroy of India), he is both fit and energetic at 95! It was he who drove the Obamas (and H.M. The Queen, of course) around, this last visit, and of him Her Majesty has said: “He is someone who doesn’t take easily to compliments but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim or we shall ever know.”
