Prince Philip was known for his gaffes.
One of his more famous gaffes was when Prince Philip told British students in China during the 1986 state visit: “If you stay here much longer, you’ll all be slitty-eyed.”
In 2002, when visiting an Aboriginal culture park in the Queensland rainforests of Australia, he asked an Aboriginal businessman: “Do you still throw spears at each other?” William Brim replied: “No. We don’t do that anymore.”
