The Duke of Edinburgh is retiring. He’s ninety-six!
It’s been his wish for six years…..
“I reckon I’ve done my bit,” he said on his 90th birthday, “So I want to enjoy myself a bit now, with less responsibility, less frantic rushing about, less preparation, less trying to think of something to say. On top of that, your memory’s going. I can’t remember names and things.
“It’s better to get out before you reach your sell-by date,” he said.
I’ve always enjoyed his straight talking – his bloopers. His colourfulness let’s say.
Well, he might look old and reptilian now – but he was quite a handsome young man.
