Prince Philip is ‘rock’ of royal family
Britain’s Prince Philip is the “rock” of the royal family.
Princess Eugenie – the granddaughter of the Prince and Queen Elizabeth – has praised her “incredible grandpa” for holding the family together when times get tough.
Speaking in a forthcoming documentary ‘Our Queen at Ninety’, which coincides with the monarch’s 90th birthday next month, Eugenie said: “I think Grandpa is incredible. He is strong and consistent. He’s been there all these years, and I think he’s the rock – for all of us.”
And, although she resides in London, the 25-year-old princess is glad her grandparents spend the majority of their time at their Balmoral estate in Aberdeenshire, Scotland as she believes that’s where they are at their happiest.
She explained: “It’s the most beautiful place on earth. I think Granny is the most happy there. I think she really, really loves the Highlands.
“Walks, picnics, dogs – a lot of dogs, there’s always dogs – and people coming in and out all the time. It’s a lovely base for Granny and Grandpa, for us to come and see them up there; where you just have room to breathe and run.”
‘Our Queen at Ninety’ will hit screens on March 27.
