Prince Philip’s brutal swipe at questioning exposed: ‘You weren’t born then!

The interviewer asked the Duke of Edinburgh about a time when it was believed he went on tiger shoots. In 1961, the Queen and Prince Philip went on two tiger shoots – one in India where the Duke shot an 8ft tiger and one in Nepal. The royal couple had gone on these hunts despite angry protests at the time from both British and Indian politicians.

Years later when asked about this, Philip angrily quipped: “No, I did not go on tiger shoots, I went on one shoot.

“Shot one tiger that happened to be lame at the time anyway.

“I imagine you weren’t even born then anyway, so what do you know about it?”

There was a sense of irritation in the Prince’s voice, who clearly resented being asked about these occasions so long ago.

Royal expert Penny Junor claimed Philip does not like the press and so can be “very abrupt and dismissive”.

However, the event certainly did spark anger in both the UK and India, which only 14 years beforehand had gained independence.

In Meghauli, Nepal, the Queen and Philip rode elephants during a tiger hunt and rhino shoot with King Mahendra of Nepal during a royal tour.

In the same year, during a royal tour of India, the pair embarked on a three-day hunt in Ranthambore, India with the Maharajah of Jaipur and his friends and family.
