Prince Philip has become a household name as Queen Elizabeth II’s husband. Despite seeing him on the news, not much is known about the former Prince of Greece and Denmark. Here are some secrets you might not have known about the Duke of Edinburgh. (But first check out items 1–4 in Part 1 here.)

5. Controversial Relatives

Aside from his highly controversial parents and his own rumored scandalous lifestyle, his other relatives may have even caught on some even weirder issues. The prince has four older sisters. Interestingly enough, all were married to German aristocrats, and some were even known Nazis. This tie to the Nazis brought up some issues when Queen Elizabeth ascended the throne.

In addition, Philip’s uncle, George Mountbatten — who raised him for much of his life — was married to a known eccentric named Nada. After winning a Charleston dancing contest in France, she ordered a tub of champagne to “soothe her feet.”

6. A Cursing Prince

The prince was highly disliked by many, counting in Queen Elizabeth’s mother and her uncle, David Bowes-Lyon. The Queen’s uncle had been badmouthing Prince Philip to Elizabeth’s mother, who had also thought that the former Prince of Greece and Denmark was in no way a gentleman. The Queen mother had even given Philip the nickname “The Hun” as a derogatory namesake.

The Prince, although already known for his aggressive wordings, still surprised photographers at the 75th Battle of Britain anniversary commemoration. When his photo was taking too long to be taken, he exclaimed, calling for the photographers to just “take the f*cking picture.”

7. A Closeted Racist?

His vulgar commentary had often gone uncomfortable, close to discrimination and racism. In one instance where he met with British exchange students studying in China, he warned them not to stay too long lest they become “slitty-eyed.” In another instance, after seeing a particularly ill-kept fuse-box wiring, he commented that it seemed to be “as if it was put in by an Indian.”

He also hurled some insulting commentary when he told off a 13-year-old boy not to hope because he was “too fat to be an astronaut.” He also insulted a young Bangladeshi boy, who he openly called a drug user because he thought he looked sickly.

8. An Alleged Murder Mastermind

Probably the biggest scandal that Prince Philip has faced would be in regard to the 1997 car crash of his former daughter-in-law, Princess Diana, and her lover Dodi Fayed. Fayed’s father, Mohamed Fayed, claimed that the death of the two were all ordered by Prince Philip. But no substantial evidence has been raised in support of this.
