Prince Philip's Alicia Keys problem
Nov 21, 2012, 12:02 GMT
Britain's Prince Philip stuck his fingers in his ears while Alicia Keys performed at the Royal Variety Performance.
The 91-year-old royal - who is prone to making gaffes in public - watched acts including One Direction, Girls Aloud and Rod Stewart, but found the 'No One' hitmaker too much to deal with and couldn't listen.
However, speaking afterwards, he claimed his opinion didn't matter as neither he nor his wife Queen Elizabeth could hear what was happening anyway.
Asked what his favourites were, he responded: 'All of them ... but to be honest we're both stone deaf.'
Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth were attending the 100th anniversary of the Royal Variety Performance, which in the past has featured acts including Laurel and Hardie, Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga.
Among the remarks Philip has made recently include asking a woman wrapped in a heat blanket if she was going to be put in an oven and telling a lady with a zip on the front of her dress he would be arrested if he undid it.
