• "Prince Philip Revealed" claimed that Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip once had a fight in Australia 
  • It was during a tour break when the couple had an argument, the new biography says
  • Queen Elizabeth allegedly threw her shoes and a racket at her husband

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip once got into an argument that resulted in the monarch throwing her shoes at her husband, a book has revealed.

Royal author Ingrid Seward said in her new biography, “Prince Philip Revealed,” that the fight happened while the couple was on a tour in Australia in 1954, Page Six reported. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were given a weekend off but were followed by a camera team that was filming the royal pair’s visit to the country as part of a documentary.

However, one cameraman was shocked to see Prince Philip rushing out of their chalet as he was “followed by a flying pair of tennis shoes and a racket and a very angry Queen shouting for him to come back,” the book said.

“Then the indignant Queen grabbed hold of her husband and dragged him back inside,” Seward wrote.

According to the author, the incident understandably shocked onlookers, who were all silent before the press secretary went to the crew and instructed them to turn off their cameras or they would be arrested. The book said that the footage was surrendered to the royals' team.

The Queen later came out to meet the crew and express her gratitude to them, the book said. She also apologized for what happened.

“I am sorry for that little interlude. But as you know it happens in every marriage. Now, what would you like me to do?” Queen Elizabeth said.

The author further noted that the couple, who tied the knot in 1947, has had a lot of fights. Seward claimed in her book that Prince Philip can sometimes be “very tough” on Queen Elizabeth, whom he allegedly usually called “a bloody fool” and accused of “talking rubbish.”

Despite her husband’s alleged harsh words, the monarch kept her composure most of the time and “seldom answered back but would change the subject and started talking in riddles that would divert him as he tried to figure out what she was talking about,” Seward wrote.

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip met when they were kids and only crossed paths again at a wedding when she was 13 and he was 18. Prince Philip retired from his royal duties in 2017.

In June, Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth shared a new photo of them taken at Windsor Castle, where they spent the coronavirus lockdown, to mark the Duke of Edinburgh's 99th birthday, BBC reported.

Seward is the editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine and has written several books about the British royal family, including “The Queen and Di,” “Diana: An Intimate Portrait” and “William & Harry.”
