Prince Philip’s “ranting” drove the Queen to “lock herself in her cabin”, according to a royal biographer. Robert Jobson joined ITV’s Royal Rota podcast to discuss the monarch’s relationship with her late husband. The commentator noted that the Duke of Edinburgh’s notorious temper could even get on his wife’s nerves.

Mr Jobson told listeners: “There was an anecdote that made me laugh.

“Once the Queen was aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia.

“Philip was ranting so much, shouting so much about something or other.

“So the Queen locked herself in the cabin.”

He continued: “Her private secretary, then Sir Martin Charteris, said, ‘Your Majesty, you’ve got to come out’.

“She said, ‘I’m not coming out until he’s calmed down’.

“‘And I’m not coming out until he stops shouting’.”

The biographer recalled another interaction between the couple that was recorded in government archives.

“He was one person who really could speak to the Queen in a way others would not be able to.

“I remember there was this one instance during a tour of the Caribbean and couldn’t wait to get on the Royal Yacht.”

He continued: “The Queen was shaking the hands of all the officials and doing what she does very well.

“But he had enough of all of this.

“And so he went on board and then he stood on the deck and shouted at the Queen, ‘Yak yak yak, there’s quite enough of that we have to go now’.

“She looked up at him and if looks could kill.

“But this was all recorded in the Foreign Office!”
