Prince Philip takes the mick out of TV presenter

Prince Philip stunned a TV presenter on Tuesday (20.11.07) when he sneaked up behind her during her broadcast and asked if she had “finished”.

Romilly Weeks, a journalist for Britain’s ITN news, was presenting a piece to camera from the Maltese capital of Valletta about the prince’s diamond wedding anniversary celebrations with his wife Queen Elizabeth when Philip
walked past.

The 86-year-royal – who was greeting well-wishers on the Mediterranean island – waited for her to finish and then bellowed: “Finished?”

His remark caused the presenter to jump and the royal to burst into fits of laughter.

The Duke of Edinburgh – who is famous for his frequent blunders and wicked sense of humour – was in Malta with his wife of 60 years, to relive memories of when they lived on the island as a young married couple when he was completing his navy duties.

Philip and the queen – who were married on 20 November, 1947 – flew to Uganda yesterday (21.11.07) where Queen Elizabeth will open the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) on November 24 after a three-day state
visit.
