The Duke of Edinburgh records at Abbey Road Studios!!

Our friends from EMI Archive Trust have given SOTH this exclusive picture of The Duke of Edinburgh recording during his visit to Abbey Road Studios.

Here is a selection of his most notable quotes as he offers his own unique advice to people all over the world.

On approaching his 90th birthday: “Bits are beginning to drop off”.

To Elton John: “Oh it’s you that owns that ghastly car is it? We often see it when driving to Windsor Castle.”

“Well, you’ll never fly in it, you’re too fat to be an astronaut.”
- to a 13-year-old whilst visiting a space shuttle.

“If it doesn’t fart or eat hay then she isn’t interested”
- speaking about his daughter, Princess Anne.

 

To all our SOTH readers get out the bunting and  enjoy your jubilations!!!
