'Fleet Street veteran Phil Dampier, who has been writing about the Royal Family for 26 years, and Ashley Walton, royal correspondent of the Daily Express from 1979 to 1992, have compiled Prince Philip: Wise Words and Golden Gaffes a new collection of his one-liners to follow up their best-selling book Duke of Hazard: The Wit and Wisdom of Prince Philip. The book, published today, portrays Philip in a slightly more flattering light than their first one.''I think the Duke comes across as a much more complex and thoughtful character in this book, as we've got a lot of his wisdom as well as some of his infamous so-called gaffes'' said Phil. ''He is a national treasure and I think the public now holds him in possibly more affection than ever before. They love his straight-talking and the fact that he is not tied down by political correctness.''' --The Daily Express - 15th June 2015
About the Author
Phil Dampier has been writing about the royal family for 26 years. Between 1986 and 1991 he covered the royal beat for The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling daily newspaper. As a freelance journalist for the last 20 years, he has travelled to more than 50 countries, following members of the House of Windsor, and his articles have been published in dozens of newspapers and magazines worldwide. He frequently appears on radio and TV, and gave expert analysis for Global National TV of Canada during their coverage of the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in April 2011. Ashley Walton was the royal correspondent of the Daily Express from 1979 to 1992. He travelled to every continent covering numerous tours, including the Queen and Prince Philip in India, Africa and China. He was one of the first reporters to identify a young Lady Diana Spencer as a future royal bride, and covered her last tour with Prince Charles to South Korea in 1992. He was also among the first to reveal the romance between Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

You will of course encounter quite a few episodes that have been reported in the press, but overall the book's a joy to read.
This is a quite funny little book with some the Duke's well known comments and I wish their were more of his type around today instead of the snags we see passing themselves off as real men.
