Prince Philip (PRINCE Philip) is known for his humor, but his unexpected remarks often make him “escape” in public.
This is why he is also called the King of Gaffes. Here are some of the things that will be remembered.
1. “It is an honor to be in a country that is not ruled by citizens,” said Alfred Stroessner, the dictator at the time, when he visited Paraguay.
2. In 1966, he said: “British women don’t know how to cook.”
3. When he visited Canada in 1969, he said: “In any case, I declare this matter public.”
4. “Everyone said that we must have more fun. Now they complain that they are unemployed,” this was a sentence he made during the 1981 British recession.
5. “You are a woman, aren’t you?” In 1984, he asked a woman in Kenya after giving him a gift.
6. “Oh, no, I can catch some terrible diseases,” he said when he refused to forgive koalas during his visit to Australia in 1992.
7. “You haven’t been here for so long-you don’t have a big belly,” he told the British in Budapest during a 1993 visit to Hungary.
8. “Deaf? It’s no surprise if you approach that,” he said to a group of deaf and mute people standing near the 1999 steel belt.
9. “Well, you can never fly, that is overweight.” He told a 13-year-old boy in 2001 when he told him that he wanted to be an astronaut.
10. “Did you know that they now produce poor appetite dogs?” He told a blind woman in 2002 that she was with a guide dog.
