Would one fix my DVD player?

King of Gaffs, Prince Philip has done it again. This time he allegedly asked one of the most famous actresses in the world to fix his DVD player. When Cate Blanchett and Prince Philip met, she told him she worked in the film industry. So what did old Phil say? "There's a cord sticking out of the back of the [DVD] machine. Might you tell me where it goes?" Amazing!

Cate politely replied that she didn’t know much about the technical side of the industry as she was an actress. The Prince apparently took it all in his stride.

You gotta love Prince Phillip. You would’ve thought that after making so many mistakes he would brush up on… well, the world. Although this is much better than some of his previous faux-pas…

Saying that, though, if our granddad met Cate Blanchett in the street, he probably wouldn’t know who she was either. Hey, when we go round to visit grandpa, he doesn’t even know who we are. And never mind about setting up a DVD player! He’s too busy staring out the window watching for aliens…

We think Phil’s doing pretty well really…
