Although many people view the British monarchs as a relic of times past, there is still a lot of interest in the going-ons in the Royal family. Queen Elizabeth II has been a keen subject for many, especially as she advances in her years. Both her and her husband Prince Phillip are in their 90s. They have been married over 60 years and they still love each other dearly. No, that last part did not come from a royal press release.
The best thing that Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth do for their marriage is accept that the other is different. She is very shy and reserved while he’s more outgoing and boisterous. They have never tried to change each other’s personalities, which leads to resentment. When she was still a princess, her royal advisors didn’t like Phillip because of his outgoing nature. They thought she should be with someone more reserved like her. Thank goodness that didn’t happen.
I mean, I’ve heard of the British having a “stiff upper lip” and everything and their humor is very different from ours. I was watching a show and a character came in. “Hello! It’s raining out.” Wild guffaws of laughter from the laugh track. Hmmm. But for the advisors to try to suggest Elizabeth get a less funny man… that was bad advice. I hope they refunded their salaries that year. Probably not.
When I was single, every female celebrity always said the same thing: “I’m looking for a guy who can make me laugh.” That generally meant, “I’m looking for a guy who can make me laugh while I bounce quarters off his abdominal muscles.” Everyone has standards, and I’m sure that Prince Charles is glad his mother had the standards that she did. Fortunately, my wife says that I make her laugh too. Mostly with, not at…
Wasn’t that a great story about how Queen Elizabeth met her husband?
