Duke of Edinburgh at family planning centre: 'at least you are all legitimate'
The Duke of Edinburgh bounced back after undergoing a minor procedure on his right hand by quipping with staff at a family planning centre "at least you are all legitimate".
Philip made the joke as he opened the new Margaret Pyke Centre in King's Cross, London.
The 92-year-old Duke was in high spirits despite having undergone a "minor procedure" performed at Buckingham Palace earlier this week which left him sporting a bandage.
Mike Waddington, the communications chief for Central and North West London NHS Foundation Trust which operates the clinic, said staff were left in fits of giggles after the one-liner.
Asked about the quip, he said: "Yes he did say that, but it was all very, very good natured."
