Prince Philip: “Just take the f***ing picture”


While the Battle of Britain lasted three months, testing the resolve of millions of Londoners and the RAF, waiting for a photograph to be taken for just a few minutes was enough to test the patience of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Prince Philip was at a photocall at the RAF Club to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the infamous battle between the Luftwaffe and the British air force when he became irate at how long it was taking to pose for a photograph with some war veterans.

Alongside Prince William, Prince Edward and Edward’s wife Sophie, the Duke of Edinburgh pointed at a man and said, “Just take the f***ing picture!” He looked visibly distressed at the time it was taking, while others laughed at Duke’s outburst.
