Since the death of H.R.H. Prince Philip , the Duke of Edinburgh I have seen and read many people's recollections of when they saw or met him. Do any of the Ambassadors have any experiences they can share?
I saw him when I was at school in 1953 - he and the Queen came to Sunderland, where I lived, as part of their round Britain tour following the Coronation. I saw him again in 1964 or 65 when he came to Oxford to formally open the Engineering Building of Oxford University. We all watched from the window of the Department of Nuclear Physics, where I worked, which at the time was situated in Banbury Road.
