A Telegraph tribute to the Prince on his 90th birthday.
The paper neglects to mention the Duke's exemplary and intelligent service during World War II. Also unmentioned, the Duke's remarkable leadership of the World Wildlife Fund, which protects endangered wildlife and environments, and his creation of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards to encourage young people to develop skills for work and life.
His loyalty to The Queen and his support as her "liege man" is well-known.
It has just been announced that The Queen has bestowed the title of Lord High Admiral, a title which HM held, on The Duke.
HRH in pictures here. You can't help but smile at the sunny one-year-old.
We leave to others the parsing of the Duke's famous, politically incorrect one-liners.
We wish him well.
