More to it than luck, I believe that most of those who really want to can!

Miserable old **** that he is, I'm sure he taught Charles how to be a devoted husband.

What a stupid comment; the prince has been married to the same woman for 64 years. Actions speak louder than words. Daft.

he has always been a very tough guy, and he isn't about to stop now, keep it going philip,
its inspiring to all of us.

my husband plays pool every morning thru the week, and he picks up a friend, who is 94, drives
him to the pool room, and 'he' is tough too, plays pool very well, has a great sense of humour,
hates to lose, grumbles about it, says he might be starting to get old and maybe he should quit
pool, but he's back the next day.

its wonderful to see. his memory is great, talks about his life. He use to be a tracker up in
the interior of b.c. for many years, lived in a cabin, travelled by foot all over the place in
the snow and such, and has great stories.

we hear too much about the illnesses that take people down, but not enough about the healthy old
people, they are all over the place, and doing just fine.

Being married does not have anything to do with fidelity.

Daft.

No, but for 64 years it does!

Good post Talloola, gives me hope that my daily walks will pay off by the time I'm 94.

I remember one incident years ago he was at an event where there was a news crew and when he felt they were getting a little too nosy he grabbed a sprinker nearby that was turned on and gave their camera a good soaking.

Really, you asked that? I guess you don't get to 21,000 posts by simply sitting back and enjoying comedy.

Can't do it I guess. I'll have to let this video of Phillip do the talking.

I talked to soldiers over the years that had the pleasure of driving him and other duties. To a man they agreed, he was one ignorant MoFuk.

Everything I've read about him is that he's ignorant, cold, and all around a miserable bastard.

Are you 90 years old? His time in hospital may not have been his decision. I think it has more to do with someone being afraid of getting headlines in the press or getting his *** sued.

were you in england in the hospital, and how do you know exactly what his procedure was, and just how
his condition is, and were you 90 when it was done?

When you're 90, revisit this question, and let us know if you're still a fuktard.

Everything you've heard about him is wrong.

He was in hospital so long because of his age. He is 90. At his age it is sometimes necessary to stay in hospital for longer than a younger person who has had the same operation. And he didn't want to stay in hospital. He was desperate to be at Sandringham with his family over Christmas and would have hated being away from them on Christmas Day. It was the first time he and the Queen had been apart on Christmas Day since 1956.

The operation was to remove a blocked artery which had been causing him chest pains. He had a coronary stent fitted.

You have it right, Blackleaf, I think. These posts from posters relaying other peoples' opinions are a prime method of generating and sustaining gossip- that sh*t is alright for Saddam and Kadaffy, but to my knowledge the Duke has never done anything to harm anyone in a serious way. Perhaps pissed off a lot of people in competitions!
