^ It was Rebecca English and her stupid speculative report in the Daily Fail that sent Twitter off into a frenzy, followed soon afterwards by foreign news outlets. I didn't see the BBC people rushing around like chooks with their heads cut off.

They call these meetings a number of times every year.

What caused the frenzy was the way the DM reported it - not that the meeting was called at all.

The DM decided it was an 'emergency meeting' - which it wasn't. It was a regular meeting that they have a couple of times every year.

The blame doesn't lie with The Royal Family but with the DM who decided to create a storm with an 'exclusive' about an 'emergency meeting' claiming it was called at 3.00 a.m. which it wasn't.

I guess we now know where Randy Andy got it from?

This is rather sweet:

"When reunited with his old colleague the duke was presented with a letter of thanks he had written to Mr Evans after he had congratulated him on his engagement to the Queen"

  Those in the know are saying Philip is not interested in interacting with Meghan.  I have now heard that from 5 sources.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!

Sealed with a quip: As Prince Philip bows out in inimitable style, a look back at his best-loved gaffes

    Prince Philip is known for being the most gaffe-prone Royal Family member
    At times witty, at other times, insensitive, he is not shy of expressing his opinions
    He announced retirement in May, after completing 22,000 solo appearances
    He made his final solo appearance on Wednesday to meet with Royal Marines
