• Queen Elizabeth once called Prince Philip her strength and stay 
  • Her Majesty doesn't like it when Prince Philip watches television loudly 
  • Prince Philip once asked his wife to shut up when she called his attention 

Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth have been married for over 70 years, and they have been each other’s strength and stay during this time.

In fact, the royal couple has become so close they have hilarious banters behind closed doors. During her appearance on “Lorraine” in 2016, royal author Katie Nicholl revealed that the Duke of Edinburgh is one of the few people who can say no to Her Majesty.

“Apparently, he likes to listen to the television very loudly and she'll say, 'Philip do turn the television down.' And he'll tell her to properly 'shut up.’ But you would have that relationship, wouldn't you?” Nicholl said.

In 2012, Prince Harry also shared a rare insight into the Queen and Prince Philip’s relationship. He said that the monarch wouldn’t have been able to be successful if she didn’t have her husband by her side.

“Regardless of whether my grandfather seems to be doing his own thing, sort of wandering off like a fish down the river, the fact that he’s there – personally, I don’t think she could do without him,” he said.

Unfortunately, the Duke of Sussex has grown distant from his grandparents ever since he tied the knot with Meghan Markle. Following his decision to quit the royal family, Prince Philip reportedly became enraged with his grandson.

To make things worse, Prince Harry just released a statement where he seemingly dissed his grandmother. Shortly after, he and his wife were accused of disrespecting the 93-year-old monarch.

Royal author Robert Hardman discussed Prince Harry and Markle’s recent actions over the Sussex Royal brand ban and accused the royal couple of having bad manners. Hardman said that even the royal couple’s supporters had a hard time accepting the fact that they disrespected the Queen.

“I think given that the Queen has gone out of her way to make this transition for them as smooth and as relatively easy as possible I think it is bad manners,” he said on TalkRADIO.
