History is laden with instances that are indicative of Prince Philip’s outbursts. Turns out, even music icon Elton John was once at the receiving end of the prince’s curt demeanor. The conversation that ensued between them years ago remains etched in the musician’s memory, so much so that he’s gone ahead and made some in-depth revelations about it.

In his new book “Me,” John spoke of a rather interesting anecdote about his meeting with Queen Elizabeth’s husband. The book is a brutally frank memoir, which is sure to leave readers and fans of the icon enthralled. By the looks of it, the music man is in the mood for a tell-all.

Prince Philip, who reportedly didn’t like the car that Elton drove, made his displeasure clear. “You live near Windsor Castle, don’t you?” asked the prince, as John recalled.

“Have you seen the bloody idiot who drives around that area in his ghastly car? It’s bright yellow with a ridiculous stripe on it. Do you know him?” the prince asked.

“Yes, Your Highness. It’s actually me,” was John’s only reply.

Not much changed despite knowing that the owner of the car was standing right before him. “What the hell are you thinking?” Prince Philip asked John.

“Ridiculous. Makes you look like a bloody fool. Get rid of it,” he added. This left members of the royal family red-faced.

In another instance, the prince passed a remark on the Queen while passing by her room. And it left Her Majesty “flush scarlet.”

“When he was doing the hem, Prince Philip walked through the Queen’s dressing room and said ‘hmmm, nice dress,’” narrated royal editor Ingrid Seward on the UK documentary “Secrets Of Royal Dressmakers.” “The Queen was just so thrilled to get the compliment from her husband.”

While Prince Philip’s infamous rants have made headlines, it is said that His Royal Highness is in no mood to tone it down. He seems thrilled to be giving an earful to those around him — if he feels the need for it.
