It seems that Prince Philip is learning the hard way about crossing Queen Elizabeth, his wife of 65 years. In the midst of the joyful news that Kate Middleton had finally delivered a royal heir it seems that part of the family was being rocked by absolutely devastating secrets. Shortly before leaving for her two month holiday in Scotland, Philip was forced to confess to Elizabeth that he had a long running affair with Zsa Zsa Gabor back in the 1950′s and it left the Queen absolutely crushed.
According to the Aug. 19th print edition of GLOBE magazine, Philip felt as if there was no choice but to confess to his wife immediately because a new book by Darwin Porter is about to hit newsstands and out the affair anyway. He wanted to try and soften the blow himself and explain that it was a million years ago and better left in the past. Unfortunately Elizabeth isn’t totally in agreement. She has ordered that Philip not join her in Balmoral when Kate arrives later this summer with little Prince George. Philip still hasn’t met his great-grandson and is fearing that he’ll die before ever having a chance to see the future ruler of Britain.
Philip’s fears are completely justified as he is struggling to recover from abdominal surgery and is bedridden for the most part. Elizabeth could care less because for decades she believed that Philip has been completely loyal to her and their family. Now she’s reeling from the realization that perhaps he set a lousy example for their son, Prince Charles. Perhaps Elizabeth feels that Charles infidelity towards Princess Diana and long running adulterous affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles was inspired and implicitly condoned by Prince Philip.
Will the Queen cave in and allow Philip to meet the new baby before it’s too late? Better yet will she even reunite with him before one of them passes on? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
