The Duke of Edinburgh used his characteristic humour with members of the public in Bromley, south London on Tuesday.
When the prince met Hannah Jackson, who was wearing an eye-catching pillar-box red dress with a zip running down the front, he told her, “I would get arrested if I unzipped that dress.”
His comment stunned those who gathered to welcome the couple to the Queen’s Gardens. Jackson said: “I’m not sure really what to say. We were talking about the event generally, it was quite a busy day and I was in the formal line up.” Prince Philip regularly claims the headlines on Royal occasions with choice words.
