Prince Phillip admitted to THE hospital for 2 weeks
Can't be bothered to post a link, sorry.
At THE hospiral they doing "exploratory work" with his abdomen.
Maybe it's time for that bigoted old limey to finally shift from this mortal coil?
He may also shuffle off this mortal coil.
I intend to sit next to the Queen at the funeral, since we're neighbors here in London.
Guess they finally figured out how full of shit he is.
For God's sake, just DIE already!!!
"Shuffled" off, oh yeah, right.
Whatever. I hope he croaks in THE hospital. All alone.
Fuck you, OP. Fuck you right in your piles-riddled dirty abscessed ass.
I can't stand Prince Philip even since it was revealed that he is the one that ordered the hit on Diana. It would be so fitting if he croaked on the day Diana's grandchild is born.
Shove it, Princess Royal. Has Prince walked in on you fingering your clit to watching Deacon on Nashville yet?
There is more than one hospital, OP. Wouldn't it be more appropriate to say, "Prince Phillip admitted to [bold]A[/bold] hospital for two weeks?"
I'm assuming your assiness about the word "the" is because you disapprove of British terminology.
Exploratory surgery? He looked pretty healthy at the reception right before he bolted for hospital!
So what is the malady? Do the bells toll?
FYI, it is PHILIP with one L, not Phillip.
I only mention it because I suspect he will be much in the news from here on in, and DataLounge should be at its very best through all this.
Oh goody, you think he's dying? How will we be able to tell?
Truly, he was the people's ass boil.
[quote]For God's sake, just DIE already!!!
Patsy doesn't say "already." That's an Americanism calqued from Yiddish.
It's "Oh, for God's sake, just die!"
He was at the races with The Queen and the two York princesses. He was standing, walking, smiling, watching the races through binoculars, etc. I thought he looked like he was full of life, even though his face looked so haggered and skinny. His skin didn't look good though, he had a bit of a gray pallor.
What kind of health plan does he have? They usually send your ass home after 2 days here.
"Philip" means "Lover of horses," which must explain why he's been so welcoming to Camilla.
Fuck off. He's hilarious. But a goner, I suspect.
He didn't order a 'hit' on Diana - how perfectly silly. Philip is very, very old and looks like he is now at death's door. I can't understand how he can do things like the 60th anniversary service at Westminster Abbey. The Queen is just like him - where do they get the energy?

I believe the Brits say "at funeral."

Good luck with that.
R21, it's their duty. The Queen took coronation vows promising God to serve her country, The Duke of Edinburgh took a coronation vow to always support her.
Thanks for the correction.
Prince Philip has been admitted to a hospital. OK. Good. Got it.
And it's going to be pronounced World War Zee, not World War Zed, R11/smartass.
He was a handsome Viking in his youth. Philip and Elizabeth are both descendants of Queen Victoria and King Christian IX, not a speck of resemblance though. I don't see any Hannoverian or Coburg in him, he's got the more pleasant Oldenburg or Battenburg features.
He probably has some massive hemorrhoids or something else embarrassing
Dodi's father, Mohammed Al-Fayed said it was Philip that ordered the hit.
Dodi's dad had absolutely no evidence for this claim and none has ever emerged. He made many claims about the tragic death of his son and Diana that turned out not to be true. Diana and Dodi were not going to be married, she wasn't pregnant with his child, she was not going to convert to Islam and neither British Intelligence or Prince Philip murdered Diana.
[quote]He probably has some massive hemorrhoids
He is a massive hemorrhoid. Good riddance to this misogynist, racist throwback to the days when the British Empire ruled and stole other countries blind.
Have they located Philip's head yet?
There is an amazing number of low life on DL. Makes me think the old prince isn't such a bigot after all. I mean, calling trash by any other name in simply hanging pearls on a pig for a beauty contest.
There is something spooky about the way very rich and powerful people live on and on. They have the whole world to live for and many of them seem afraid to die.
Maybe it's because they have access to a much higher quality of medical care than the rest of us.
Would Dick Cheney still be alive if he belonged to some HMO in Duluth?
Probably. Medical care in Minnesota is actually of very high quality.
Oh god. I knew if I said Timbuktu someone would chime in.
[quote]Medical care in Minnesota is actually of very high quality.
The health care that is available for the hoi polloi can't begin to measure up to the Walter Reed level of care available to Dick Cheney and his cronies.
Do you think he'll get his wish and reincarnated as a deadly virus?
Deadly virus was this life. Who knows what the next done will bring? Dog dung?
Gee R11, I guess if you don't like it you should get your own language.
Okay, stupid at R40, I'll explain this so maybe even you can understand.
OP capitalized the word "THE" because he doesn't like that the English say, "in hospital" instead of "in the hospital," which we use in Americanized English.
Both are forms of English; one is used in England and the other in the U.S.
We had a thread months ago where posters talked about differences between Brit and U.S. language; "in hospital" seemed to bother a number of posters.
I suggested that neither is particularly descriptive. "In the hospital" assumes there's a single hospital while "in a hospital" is clearer.
Get it, or is it still too complicated for you?
I say, one more week among the gollywog staff of this hospital and I'll start sprouting kinky hair, ha ha ha!
Does the gay son have children? The one who wanted to be an actor?
"exloratory work on his abdomen" may mean he is going to undergo an exploratory laparotomy, which is a surgery were the the abdomen is opened and the surgeon looks for a tumor or an obstruction or both. These days the surgeons usually know what they are looking for with all the imaging etc- this does not look good- possibly a mass that is too big or diffuse to be needle biopsied, i.e. cancer. Chances are they do know what they are looking for.
The 'gay' son (The Earl of Wessex) married and has two cute children, Lady Louise and Lord James Windsor ( James uses his father's second title Viscount Severn as courtesy). The Earl's wife Sophie is lovely and they represent The Queen at oversees royal occasions like weddings and funerals.
So, he's had the surgery? Let's get to work! Gotta stay Top Jock!

I will bitchslap anyone who attempts to stop me from sitting anywhere I goddamn well please at Prince Philip's funeral.
I am older than dirt, but I assure you I am still feisty.
If he died 20 years ago I'd be a happily remarried woman.
Is he dead yet?
"He's not ill."
I can't eat. I can't sleep. I'm so worried.
And love the way he gets up the noses of the tiresomely PC.
His caring published letters to the egocentric half-wit Diana also blew out of the water the claims of the haters and tin-hat conspiracy whackos.
my sources at Butt fucking am Palace say that Q. Liz fisted Phillip and that is why he was rushed and admitted to emergencies.
R55 Are you posting from a crack house in The Bronx?! Honey stay away from the drugs. Queen Elizabeth doesn't fist Princess Phillip. They are both lizards, lizards don't fuck that way honey...;)
assuming Philip dies first, I don't think Elizabeth will live much longer after him (aside from her age, just from a broken heart)
Kate Middleton will probably go into labor on the day of his State Funeral, thus causing her mom to go absolutely nuts. Can you imagine all the attention the old man will steal away from Britain's Next Top Anorexic?
He maybe crusty and cranky and also adulterous,but he is loyal and like the Queen has done his duty even when he has hated it.
The Queen loves horse racing,he never has.
But duty is everything.
He was bloody good looking in his 20s 30s 40s and even 50s.
[quote]He maybe crusty and cranky and also adulterous,but he is loyal
How can he be both adulterous and loyal?
He's not loyal per se, but he is DUTIFUL.
R9 / R28 You do realise I hope that Mohamed Fayed is a proven liar and all-round fuckwit? (And I purposely won't put the 'Al' in the middle of his name because it is a self-appointed semi-aristo affectation, not the name he was born with - it would be like me putting 'Sir' in front of my name)
Fayed has been publicly shown to be a liar so many times it's not even funny anymore. He lost his son and that is sad for anyone, but his rambling assassination insanity shouldn't be taken seriously.
As for old Phil the Greek, I think Liz(ard) will be heartbroken when he goes. He's a bugnuts old crackpot but he does sometimes make me laugh.
I predict a quick remarriage and an immediate miraculous in vitro pregnancy thanks to some well-frozen eggs. She will move to replace the whole stinking lot of Mountbatten cruds by declaring them CATHOLIC and therefore not eligible for the crown.
I dont wish death on anyone even though he is a bigot and was a wild philanderer. HRH was crazy about Philip in the early days and her father, realising his precious Elizabeth wanted to marry him, bestowed a whole bunch of titles on him so he seemed more worthy of her then he really was. He wasn't completely devoid of royal heritage, but he was way down the food chain. It seems Lizzie married him for love but he married her for status. He did do his duty however, turning up to every dull thing he had to which he clearly loathed. It seemed like a fair exchange, Elizabeth saved him from obscurity and a life of far less means and he turned up to garden parties and made small talk with middle aged women about the weather.
As the song goes "a gold digger, yes indeed"
I know I shouldn't be surprised but the conspiracy loons on this site are amazing. I've never met one in real life but the internet is awash with them.
I'm just waiting for the first one to claim that it's no coincidence that Philip got ill while the Bilderberg circus is in town, they need to silence him before he reveals all the details of their plans for mind control via the new season of Next Top Model.
I agree r65, it's as though wealthy, beautiful people must somehow be above mortality. Diana jumped in a car with a driver drunk out of his mind. The car was speeding. For most people this is a recipe for disaster, so why is Diana any different? The notion that being rich and famous somehow guarantees you a long life and the only way a celebrity would ever die young is if theyre murdered is crazy.
Charles does not get along with him at all.
Prince Phillip was known to be close with Anne and Andrew because they were the toughest. Charles and Edward were too fey and artistically inclinated for his taste. I think Andrew turned on him during the whole Fergie scandal and their relationship never really was the same. Phillip despises Sarah.
The evil do not die young
I can understand, OP - posting a link is a very hard thing to do.
I have alway heard he had a taste for the boys..and Lizzie turned a blind eye to it...
He did very well as a young officer in the Royal Navy. When warplanes from Italy were headed toward his ship for a night raid, he devised a plan to lead them off course so that they dropped their bombs on a few rowboats with lighted lanterns while his ship sailed away from the attackers. After the end of the war in Europe, Philip served on a ship in the war in the Pacific and was present in Tokyo Bay when Japan signed the Instrument of Surrender.
I crossed paths with him a few times, ended up in a photo with him and the P.M. of Australia at a Navy event in Sydney. I also saw him at the Queen Mother's 90th birthday and did a bit of research at the Imperial War Museum regarding his Royal Navy days. Had he not married Princess Elizabeth, I'm certain he would have attained a high rank in the navy on his own.
I wish him and Nelson Mandela would both just die, already. It would be sorta like when Princess Diana and Mother Theresa died around the same time.
OP, even in the U.S., we go to school, not THE school. We go to work, not THE work. We go to church, not THE church, and some will go to heaven, not THE heaven.
OP/R73, whatever you think of Nelson Mandela, even if you think NM is the anti-Christ, how can you even begin to compare them? Philip had a few good years on his own, but needed money and married Elizabeth Regina II and, other than showing up now and then and looking pissed, really doesn't have to do all that much. (Although the royals are always whining about all they have to do as if they had real jobs and didn't hire people to wipe their asses.)
R69 no doubt meant to say "THE evil."
What a ridiculous lot you are.
And R64 is the most glowing example of a presumptuous know-nothing squalling from her high-chair that the thread has presented.
Shut up, you tuber. As if you are privy to inside knowledge as you misinterpret and misrepresent custom, history, facts, personalities, motives, and the record. What is it about such subjects that brings out the lunatics this way?
I was hoping he would have croaked by now.
So has there been no word as to what the hell is actually wrong with him?
R79, he is not ill.
[quote]Dodi's father, Mohammed Al-Fayed said it was Philip that ordered the hit.
Yea, and he also said the driver wasn't drunk.
Oh shut up R77. Instead of insulting me you could have asked how I know what I know, i would have gladly told you, but you didn't. You're 18 kinds of stupid and then some. The fact that you don't like what I shared, doesn't make it untrue.
Did Philips order of the the include the driver getting totally wasted?
If Phillip dies, would the Queen remarry? If the Prime Minister wanted to forge or solidify an alliance, whom would he marry Elizabeth to?
R84, she might find herself a nice Protestant German prince, the country is teaming with them and many are related to her.
It would be a fine replacement for her mostly-German current husband anyway.
R85, if Zsa Zsa ever dies, would the Prinz be a suitable candidate?
[quote]I predict a quick remarriage and an immediate miraculous in vitro pregnancy thanks to some well-frozen eggs. She will move to replace the whole stinking lot of Mountbatten cruds by declaring them CATHOLIC and therefore not eligible for the crown.
This made me LOL. It reminded me of a Frasier episode where Daphne picks up a copy of a newspaper lying on the breakfast table and, not realizing that it's a decades old paper, exclaims, "Queen Elizabeth is going to have another baby? I don't care what modern science can do; some things are just not right."
Both him and Mandela will die the same day.
Shoot, R88, the better equivalent is who will die first: Phil, the guy who hasn't had to do real work in years because he boinked the queen, or Zsa Zsa who also hasn't had a real job in years.
When old man Philip dies, Andrew and I will remarry.
