Duke's hospitalistion[edit]

Re the Duke's recent hospitalization: can we state yet that he will not carry out public engagements again until the fall? It was announced by the Palace this afternoon. It's notable b/c he rarely takes extended time off and up until a few years ago, carried out as many as 500 or 600 engagements a year. 67.247.142.252 (talk) 00:28, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

That would be OK, if that's what the source says, except for one thing. We really must say autumn, not fall. HiLo48 (talk) 01:27, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Very well 67.247.142.252 (talk) 11:06, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Succession box[edit]

This should be the 4th creation of Duke of Edinburgh not 3rd. Once Duke of Edinburgh is created with duke of Gluocester.Chamika1990 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 01:43, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Category:British people of Greek descent[edit]

I have removed Category:British people of Greek descent as unsourced, and as far as I'm aware, untrue. Prince Philip's ancestry is, as with most European royals, somewhat diverse, but largely German in its roots. If he has any Greek ancestry, it is probably from many generations back. The 'Greek' royal family of which Philip was a part were of course imported: George I of Greece who was 'nominated' by the Great Powers, was Danish, in as much as he was anything other than a typical inbred Northern European royal... 13:15, 22 July 2013 (UTC)

yesss...but his father was born in Greece, thus making his father Greek. Clearly, in that respect; the Duke of Edinburgh is unquestionably of Greek descent.JWULTRABLIZZARD (talk) 15:04, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

Berthold[edit]

I have found information that Berthold, his brother-in-law was not in active Nazi service or in any of the German armed forces during WWII. Unless you can find a source otherwise stating.Phd8511 (talk) 15:44, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Your source says he wasn't a Nazi but says nothing about his army service. Vickers is clear that he did serve in the German army until 1940. DrKiernan (talk) 16:02, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
What is Vickers? Serve with what role? Christoph at least is prominent being in the Air Ministry.Phd8511 (talk) 20:57, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
The source is given at the end of the sentence. DrKiernan (talk) 07:08, 26 July 2013 (UTC)

current photo's caption is wrong[edit]

The photo at the top of the page is not of the Duke in 2013, but of his 2007 visit to NASA in the States with the Queen. 74.69.9.224 (talk) 23:45, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

Absolutely right. It's fixed. HiLo48 (talk) 00:06, 7 January 2014 (UTC)
