Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, met his future wife when he was only 18 years old. Today, he now has a relationship totaling 70 years to Queen Elizabeth II. Throughout her reign, Prince Philip has been there by the Queen’s side, with many wondering as to why he continues to remain a prince when of course his wife is the Queen of England. Although now Prince Phillip keeps a low profile, heavily due to his age there are some skeletons in his closet you may not have expected.
The Queens funny nickname
Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II have been married for an outstanding 70 years. Dame Helen Mirren plays Queen Elizabeth II in the movie The Queen and it is here that we find out Prince Philip’s adorably odd nickname.
Filmmaker Peter Morgan said, “I inquired in royal circles and was told on very good authority that that is what the Duke sometimes calls the Queen.” In the movie, Prince Philip can be heard calling his wife “Cabbage”!
