No doubt a controversial figure, known for his 'gaffes' as much as his service, my experience of meeting him at various charity events was that he was always courteous, curious and intentionally humorous. Nearly 74 yrs of marriage is a quite remarkable stat #dukeofedinburgh pic.twitter.com/RaNTnHGMAK— Sanjeev Bhaskar💙 (@TVSanjeev) April 9, 2021
