For someone of my views, and being of a sensitive disposition, reading articles in The Guardian on the Monarchy is not usually recommended. However I came across an article from the paper’s online site which does rather probe that rule. It is by Will Hutton, the economics journalist and academic, and is informative as to Prince Philip in action on behalf of the Crown and is an entertaining account of a dinner party at Buckingham Palace. In that it is also ties in with what I wrote in The supra-national background of Prince Philip. It is also is an interesting commentary on aspects of the European debate amongst the political insiders of recent years.
The article can be read at The night Prince Philip told me he was a ‘European mongrel’, and happy that way
