When a man opens a car door for his wife, it’s either a new car or a new wife.

I am the only man in the country not allowed to give his name to his children.

Everyone has to have a sense of duty. A duty to society, to their family. I mean, you name it.

It would have been very easy to play to the gallery, but I took a conscious decision not to do that. Safer not to be too popular. You can’t fall too far.

The man who invented the red carpet needed his head examined.

You can’t just decide you want to do this or that. You have to be invited.

It’s better to get out before you reach the sell-by date.

In the first years of the Queen’s reign, the level of adulation – you wouldn’t believe it. You really wouldn’t.

Everything that wasn’t invented by God is invented by an engineer.

We don’t come to Canada for our health. We can think of other ways of enjoying ourselves.

(Prince Philip)
