Celebrating the Last GREAT Briton: Best Queen Elizabeth Memes Plus Prince Philip Humor
Queen Elizabeth did her duty to the end as the last GREAT Briton plus Prince Philip's politically incorrect humor!
Queen Elizabeth’s funeral is today and an American Greatness article recently summed up her life as that of the LAST Great Briton:
Queen Elizabeth held her tongue through socialism, permissive society, terrorism (including plots against her directly and the murder of her third cousin, Lord Mountbatten), family breakdowns, entry into the European Economic Community, exit from the European Union, dishonest wars, uncontrolled immigration, transnationalism, antimajoritarianism, multiculturalism, wokeism, de-policing, COVID-19, lockdown, the administrative state’s growth and disengagement, Chinese imperialism, Russian aggression, energy insecurity, inflation, and the collapse of sterling.
And then there was her husband Prince Philip - also a legend:
He was an inspiration. He refused to be bitter for being dumped in British schools by parents he hardly saw. He once responded to an interviewer’s probing with an emphatic “you just get on with it.” Teachers today would probably call him “repressed.” No, he was stoic.
Philip was patriotic for his adopted land. He fought with the Royal Navy (against Germany, the nation that his sisters had adopted by marriage). He gave up a promising naval career when his wife was called to the throne.
Philip dedicated his life to supporting the queen. Like her, he excelled in his chosen role. She once publicly spoke of him as her “stay.”
Yet Philip was no passive bag-man. He advised. He created. He was a patron. He institutionalized a ladder of outdoor challenges as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. This “Scheme” became a coming of age for myself and millions of other teenagers.
Philip was self-reliant. He had expectations. He was outgoing and funny, yet proper. Like Elizabeth, I cannot think of Philip without thinking of the inferiorities of social norms today….

And now for some quick Queen Elizabeth memes in her honor along with some Prince Philip humor…
The classic Queen Elizabeth meme:
A life of service to her country and the Commonwealth:
I just have to include this one:
We can only hope ALL reporters are sent elsewhere….:
Prince Philip was also a character and a legend in his own right (10 most witty and humorous quips by Prince Philip, the late Duke of Edinburgh):
On his visit to the Caribbean hospital, 1966: "You have mosquitoes. I have the Press."
In 1967, on being asked if he would like to visit the Soviet Union: “I would like to go to Russia very much – although the bastards murdered half my family.”
During the 1981 recession: “A few years ago, everybody was saying we must have more leisure, everyone’s working too much. Now that everybody’s got more leisure time they are complaining they are unemployed.”
While discussing blood sports in 1988: “I don’t think a prostitute is more moral than a wife, but they are doing the same thing.”
At a 1986 World Wildlife Fund meeting: "If it has four legs and is not a chair, has wings and is not an aeroplane, or swims and is not a submarine, the Cantonese will eat it."
On marriage: "When a man opens a car door for his wife, it's either a new car or a new wife."
To a Briton in Budapest, in 1993: "You can’t have been here that long — you haven’t got a pot belly."
During a 1986 state visit in China: "If you stay here much longer, you’ll all be slitty-eyed."
He once questioned a driving instructor in Scotland: "How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to get them through the test?"
To the President of Nigeria, who was in national dress, 2003: "You look like you’re ready for bed!"
"Constitutionally I don't exist," said Prince Philip, who became the longest-serving consort in British history in 2009.
While chatting with fashion writer Serena French in 1993, he asked: “You’re not wearing mink knickers, are you?”
In 2000, Philip spoke to a group of female politicians at a Buckingham Palace party whose name tags had “Ms” on them, which prompted him to announce: “Ah, so this is feminist corner, then.”
On the deck of the Britannia, the famously short-fused Philip shouted at the Queen while she spoke to their hosts on the quay during an official visit to Belize in 1994: “Yak, yak, yak; come on, get a move on.”
Seeing plans for the Duke and Duchess of York’s Sunninghill Park abode in 1988, he remarked: “It looks like a tart’s bedroom.”
While watching John sing at a Royal Variety Command Performance, he was overheard saying: “I wish he’d turn the microphone off.”
Upon being told that Madonna was singing the “Die Another Day” theme in 2002, he asked: “Are we going to need ear plugs?”
On Tom Jones in 1969, he said, “It’s difficult to see how it’s possible to become immensely valuable by singing what are the most hideous songs.”
Discussing the wealthy in Britain, he noted: “What about Tom Jones? He’s made a million and he’s a bloody awful singer.”
After chatting to Tom Jones after the Royal Variety Performance in 1969, he politely inquired: “What do you gargle with, pebbles?”
His daughter, Princess Anne, has a well documented love of horses. In 1970 Prince Philip addressed this and said: "If it doesn't fart or eat hay, she isn't interested."
In 2002, when visiting an Aboriginal culture park in the Queensland rainforests of Australia, he asked an Aboriginal businessman: "Do you still throw spears at each other?" William Brim replied: "No. We don't do that any more."
When the Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen visited the British Embassy in Berlin in 2002 he commented: "It's a vast waste of space."
He lost his patience when an official photograph was being taken in 2015 at the RAF Club, and was said to exclaim: "Just take the f****** picture."
The Duke of Edinburgh met with a 25-year-old council worker, Hannah Jackson, in 2012 in Bromley, in Kent. She was wearing a dress with a zip running the length of its front and he said to her: "I would get arrested if I unzipped that dress."
When Prince Philip turned 90 in 2011 he jovially remarked that "bits are beginning to drop off".
