Queen’s moment of exasperation as Philip’s mobile goes off in his pocket during royal walkabout
It’s a moment of panic familiar to the best of us – a mobile phone going off at an inopportune moment. So there was sympathy and smiles for Prince Philip when his phone went off in his pocket as he arrived for a royal walkabout in Bromley today.
But – also like the rest of us – he got an unamused look from his wife as he fumbled in his raincoat to switch off the offending item.
However that was the only tiny blip during the Queen’s visit to Bromley, the sun even managed to make an appearance after a morning of heavy rain during which the waiting crowds had cowered beneath their brollies.
The royal couple were met by deafening cheers and a sea of Union flags, spending around ten minutes in Market Square greeting the crowds.
One’s phone’s gone orf!
