“If you’ve talked to any of the staff, Philip is the one that everyone really loves.”
Today marks what would have been Prince Philip’s 100th birthday, with the Duke of Edinburgh tragically deceased in April.
To pay homage to the Duke and his 100th birthday, the internet has seen a wave of homage, with several back-to-back portraits of Prince Philip making headlines.
Members of the royal family, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, were the ones who shared tributes to the much-loved royal family.
The royal staff will also be marked on the day, with Prince Philip being the most famous royal on the walls of the Palace.
Actor Matt Smith, who played Prince Philip on the Netflix series The Crown, opened his research on the Duke of Edinburgh.
“All the research I’ve done has found it brilliantly funny, very clever, very popular,” Matt was enthusiastic about Prince Philip. “In the royal house he’s the most popular of all. If you’ve talked to any of the staff, Philip is the one that everyone really loves.”
The actor continued: ‘He’s a little more of a man of the people. The royal protocol has not haunted him in the same way all his life and there is a kind of rebellion in him and a scam and a scam. I think he is quite friendly and open to all accounts with the staff. ‘
“Everyone loves it”
Our thoughts remain with the royal family.
