Yes indeed, it’s HRH Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh’s birthday (or at least it will be on Friday).
That irascible royal, with a penchant for putting his foot in it by virtue of his wonderful pass-remarkable nature, will be 90 on Friday. In order to commemorate such an august event, the Guardian have put together a Pass Notes on him. With comments such as “How do you keep the natives off the booze for long enough to pass the test?” (to a Scottish driving instructor), you know it’s worth a read.
