Prince Philip once boldly called Elton John a bloody fool over one of the singer’s ridiculous decisions.

In his book “Me: Elton John,” the “Candle In The Wind” singer recounted his first meeting with the Duke of Edinburgh, which took place shortly after he was named as the chairman of Watford Football Club.

During their polite conversation, Prince Philip suddenly changed the subject and he asked Elton John if he lives near Windsor Castle. Before the singer could even say yes, Queen Elizabeth’s husband went on to ask if he’s seen a “bloody idiot” who has been driving around the area with a ghastly car.

Prince Philip described the design on the so-called ghastly car before asking Elton John if he had any idea who owned the car. The singer politely replied by saying that he owns the vehicle.

At this point, the singer said that Prince Philip wasn’t taken aback by his answer. In fact, he went on to criticize the car.

“In fact, he seemed quite pleased to have found the idiot in question so that he could give him the benefit of his advice. What the hell are you thinking? Ridiculous. It makes you look like a bloody fool. Get rid of it,” John said.

According to Express, John bought an Aston Martin and got it professionally painted to reflect his lifelong support and a new role at Watford. His unique car was painted in yellow and it also featured a red and black stripe down the middle.

“I didn’t realize how much attention it had attracted until I was introduced to Prince Philip. Supporting Watford was something that ran through my whole life, while everything else had changed beyond recognition,” he said.

Meanwhile, this wasn’t the only time that Prince Philip boldly said something offensive in public. In fact, the dad of four has been dubbed as rude because of his use of hurtful words.
