PRINCE PHILIP is to step down from his duties of making racist comments, insulting foreigners and generally being unpleasant to members of the public, Buckingham Palace announced yesterday. The 240-bedroom royal residence told reporters that Philip, 96, had made the decision himself after discussions with the QUEEN, who fully supported him. After the announcement, Downing Street paid tribute to the Duke. “Prince Philip has worked tirelessly to cause embarrassment and awkwardness for this country at home and abroad for more than seven decades, and we wish him a long and happy retirement,” said the 120ftlong gated Whitehall cul-de-sac.
