    Despite the fact he undoubtedly did say the attributed quote regarding the virus, earlier in his life I believe he genuinely was more of a philanthropist.

    I heard him saying out of his own mouth in regards to sport - that no-one cares where your from, or who you are when you have joint interests and are working together. (That's a paraphrase).
    He started the Duke of Edinburgh Awards which has been of immense benefit to many, including my own son.

    It is only after exposure to many powerful people that his views changed. He was but a muggle after all, and many of the people he mingled with were type 2's. Its probably accurate to say he began life with a lot of good intentions but he ended it totally corrupted by bad intentions.
    I agree with you about the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, I also knew many who worked towards that.

    Do bear in mind though that he was born into the Greek royal family, that's pretty high up the food chain, though they weren't Greek at all but German aristocrats who were packed off to run a country that had the audacity to try to become a republic. He would have been around powerful people from childhood.

    It's also said about him that when debutantes were presented at court (a practice that ended some time in the 1950s), the debs always dreaded that he might smile at them; he always smiled at the ugly ones. That's quite soul-destroying to a teenage girl, and shows a streak of nastiness IMO.

    I agree Ewan, that's quite possible. So I would caution against judging the man too harshly. None of us have been standing on his shoulder for 99 years to bear witness to his life and deeds. What we read and what hear is only what we read and what we hear. We don't know for sure exactly how much traction these stories have. So we cannot accurately judge the man.

    However I do believe it's true that he was a 33rd degree mason and probably the top masonic dog of them all (in the world). So that's, how shall we say, troubling... He was very very very interested in UFOs though. I wish I knew more about the nature of that interest, and what he actually knew.

    I can say that the debutante 'story' has been repeated many times; there was a documentary years ago about the debutante era and one of the debutantes stated this when interviewed. His remarks of downright rudeness and inappropriate racial comments have been a mainstay in the British press for decades, and are even being repeated - as 'gaffes' - in the press at the moment.

    Seeing as British taxpayers - which includes myself - have to fund this extremely wealthy family through the income tax that we pay, we are more than entitled to see them as they are.

    Oh entirely. For me the only two events surrounding the royal family that I engaged in, or became engaged by, in any shape or form, was the silver jubilee and the royal wedding (Charles and Diana), and that's only because they were hyped to the hilt and I was a kid, I had little choice but to go with the flow. Since growing up however, my opinion about them, and consideration for them (their very existence), has gone down and down and down. Today, I simply couldn't give a proverbial toss about them to be honest. I wonder what portion of today's population (in contrast to say, 40 years ago) also feel the same way.

    Virgin's blood must actually work. But who would want that on their conscience?

    Hopefully, no offence to any one!
