Prince Philip was a great innovator in the royal family. Who are the new trailblazers now? | UK News

Inside the castle grounds – as I watched Prince Philip’s coffin pass our studio in the back of the Land Rover – it was a poignant but quirky reminder that at the heart of the ceremony were the ideas of ‘a man who has not always loved. comply.

But unlike some public figures today, his appetite to question or challenge the status quo was never about his own image or his popularity gain – and it could be said with his personality. He never did or said things for fun.
