A Fond Farewell to a Royal Rogue

Following the announcement that Prince Phillip will be stepping down from attending royal duties and engagements we here at The Basement would like to send a fond farewell to the loveable and sometimes controversial Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh. After relinquishing his royal titles of Prince of Greece and Denmark after the second world war and marrying Queen Elizabeth II in 1947 Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth gave life to four children.  Not known for watching his tongue Prince Phillip has at times been the source of controversy but despite many trials and tribulations he has always maintained a mirth and sense of humour that although often not seen as proper for royalty and not always politically correct brought a more human and relate-able side to the royal family.

We here at The Basement would like to wish him well and happiness in his future endeavours.
