Probably asking the leader of the Aboriginies (sp?) if they still throw spears at each other.

In another thread, someone suggested that he must know what he is saying rather than him just being that daft. More I think about it, I have to agree!

"Can you tell the difference between them?"
- The Duke's question after President Barack Obama said he met with the leaders of the UK, China and Russia.

1981, During the recession he mused: “Everybody was saying we must have more leisure. Now they are complaining they are unemployed."

2010, On asking a female Sea Cadet what she did for a living, and being told that she worked in a nightclub (as a barmaid), the Duke asked “Is it a strip club?” Observing her surprise he dismissed the suggestion saying that it was “probably too cold for that anyway”.

Happy 90th...Ghastly!
