Prince Philip is obviously upset at the demise of his beloved News of the World newspaper. He confessed, this morning, to Prince Charles that he is indeed going to miss reading the paper.
He reminisced with Charles about the 'good old days' of The News of the World, when Charles what but a lad and Grandma used to grab the News of the World as soon as she could get her hands on it. Not to READ it...Oh no! She attacked it fervently with a Biro.
Charles was interested and asked Philip why she would do that.
That's when Prince Philip told him that the pages of the News of the World used to be filled with photographs of nude women and Grandma would hastily drawn bathing suits, in blue Biro, on all the nudes in case Charles got a hold of it and was corrupted by looking at the nudes.
The stories were scandalous, which is why Philip became an avid fan. He said he'd considered purchasing the outfit himself but knew Elizabeth just wouldn't allow it.
Although the content changed over the years, Philip remained a loyal royal. He confessed to Charles that he had kept some of his favourite copies over the years, locked in a safe. He also admitted that he couldn't wait to get his hands on the final edition.
A bemused Charles smiled a 'knowing' smile at Philip and went back to reading his Daily Mirror.
