The art of opening one's mouth and putting one's foot in it ...or “dontopedology” as he named it himself … is quite a talent, and when you're the Duke of Edinburgh it does not go unnoticed.

The life of Prince Philip from his early years at school … “bloody freezing most of the time”, to his first meeting with Princess Elizabeth … “she claimed it was love at first sight, I can't remember a bloody thing about it” and his relationship with the press ...”bloody reptiles!”

The witty script looks at the Prince's private life, including his frustrations at not being able to pass his own name on to his children … “am I nothing but a bloody amoeba?” and his grudging acceptance that the British public are far more interested in his famous gaffes than in the work he has undertaken on behalf of the Royal Family for decades. His views on Diana are here too – the audience being left in no doubt as to where his loyalties lie.

In the curious position of being forced to take a back seat while doing one of the most high profile jobs in the world, we see a man determined from the outset to do his duty to the best of his ability and to keep on doing it. But unfortunately, when one is born with a silver foot in one's mouth, one is propelled into the limelight rather more than one might wish!
