The Duke of Edinburgh was not only content to walk a few steps behind the Queen — he was also happy to be her bell boy, as broadcaster Clare Balding discovered at a lunch at Windsor Castle.
The Duke was so absorbed talking to the surgeon sitting opposite him that the Queen suddenly ordered from the end of the table: ‘Philip — the bell!’
‘It was then when I noticed in front of Prince Philip was a round metal disc,’ Clare recalled.
‘In the centre of it was a button, which he duly pushed. Seconds later, staff cleared the plates.’
She then asked the Duke: ‘Does the Queen not have her own button?’
He replied with a smile, ‘Certainly not. I’ve got to have some things that I’m in charge of.’
Being lost in translation is a common plight for most actors, but a daring Hugh Grant hopes to win the French over by pretending he can speak their language.
‘I can speak French to get by, but when I’m doing a publicity tour for a film, we get to France and they say, “Could you do live radio interviews in French?” and I say of course,’ explains the Four Weddings And A Funeral star.
‘Then I go on and I can’t understand a word anybody is saying, not one word.’
Much to the fury of the French, he adds.
‘I just say sorry, I don’t understand, you can say that once or twice, but when you say it the eighth time, they just cut you off with jingles, like, “Who is this idiot?” ’ Such a faux pas, Hugh.
