Like many couples everywhere, Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth reportedly bickered “sweetly” during lockdown, with the prince telling his wife to “shut up, you silly woman.”
The Duke of Edinburgh, who died at age 99 on April 9, is said to have spent his last weeks of his life “reminiscing like mad” with his wife of 72 years. His funeral was set for Saturday afternoon at Windsor Palace.
After Philip left the hospital last month, he and the Queen pored over family photographs and old family films, which Philip had digitized, the Daily Mail reported.
“They bickered with one another,” one palace aide told The Daily Mail.
“It was sweet, but so unexpected. On one occasion, I heard the Duke say, ‘Oh do shut up you silly woman’ and the Queen replied ‘I am not a silly woman, I am the Queen!’”
