I don't see how that's offensive. Or inaccurate.

ASide from the gaffery, which is brilliant, he does actually seem pretty alright. Far better than Liz or CHarles.

The best part about this one is his explanation "I meant a cowboy, it looked like it had been put in by a cowboy. I just got my cowboys and indians mixed up".

He said it to defend gun ownership immediately after a madman shot about 20 people dead in the 90's.

Oh, okay. Now it makes sense.

For the record, though, I still agree with him. No country should call itself civilized when its people have access to cricket bats.

Blundering Prince Philip made an astonishing gaffe when he mocked the dress sense of an Army cadet blinded in an IRA attack.

As the Queen asked 15-year-old Stephen Menary, who also lost an arm, how much he could see Philip said: "Not a lot, judging by that tie."

He is bigoted, racist, and ignorant.

He has no idea what his country is truly like, and his comments are often offensive, not funny at all. He is a poor representation of our country, and I would remove him (and the rest) from their ridiculous, archaic positions of monarchy given the chance.

inb4; "you got trolled by phil" etc. He has no intention of making people angry, he just shows his abysmal ignorance every time he opens his mouth.

Jesus Christ, it's a thread about comments from a member of the Royal Family, not a discussion about whether they should remain in power.
