Prince Philip: "The Philippines must be half-empty, you're all here running the NHS!"

Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
Ever the vocal, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, told Filipino nurses: "The Philippines must be half-empty - you're all here running the NHS." Filipino nurses at Luton and Dunstable Hospital took the 91-year-old prince's joke with good humor and laughed. Indeed, the prince has enough reason to say so, given that a lot of Filipino nurses have come the Britain to work for the country's National Health Service.


The Duke made his remark after he inauguratd the L5.5 mn facility last Tuesday.
