About the Author
Phil Dampier has been writing about the Royal Family for 20 years. Between 1986 and 1991, he covered the Royals for The Sun and broke many major news stories. Phil has travelled to more than 40 countries following members of the House of Windsor. His articles have been published worldwide. He is currently Royal Editor of New Idea - one of Australia's biggest selling magazines. Phil lives in Kent with his partner Ann. Ashley Walton was the Royal Correspondent for the Daily Express from 1979 to 1992. He travelled the globe covering Royal tours including The Queen and Prince Philip in India and Africa, and was in China during their 1986 visit when the Duke made his famous "slitty-eyes" remark. Ashley was one of the first reporters to identify a young Lady Diana Spencer as a future royal bride. Ashley lives in Herfordshire with his wife Joan. They have two sons.

Some of the quotes, however, do not provoke a laugh, they instead cause the reader's mouth to drop open in disbelief that something so careless and cruel could actually be said out loud, in public, by a man who has had a lifetime's experience of being in the public eye.
Some of the quotes, however, simply show a man who has plenty of common-sense and is unafraid to cut through any PC jargon he sees as nonsense.
Some of this book will make you laugh, other parts will dismay you. It all adds up to a man who may be a curmudgeon, but he works hard, is honest and straight-to-the-point, and does not suffer fools gladly, if at all.
The Duke is a breath of humour from a byegone era and his wit shows an uncommon intelligence combined with a healthy disregard for conformity in our overly PC correct society.
Highly recommended reading for the brainwashed Brits.
