Queen Elizabeth: Prince Philip upset monarch with harsh criticism on Malta royal tour

1 min read


She quoted Geoffrey Bocca’s early biography: “It was all very upsetting.

“The Empire had on its hands a Princess it adored passionately, but a Princess that was overstuffed and overdressed.

“As a non-smoker, she did not have the assistance of nicotine to hold down the poundage.

“So she went off starchy food and she took appetite-reducing pills – a blue pill for breakfast, a green pill at lunch, and a chocolate pill at dinner.”

Interestingly, three years later when Elizabeth and Philip went on a royal tour to twelve countries after her coronation in 1953, reporters were censored in order to protect her.
