Prince Philip snubs Gogglebox’s Sandy and Sandra

Prince Philip certainly hasn’t taken to the stars of Channel 4’s Gogglebox, Sandy and Sandra, when he met them during a walkabout for the Queen’s 90th birthday celebrations.

The Duke of Edinburgh was walking around alongside The Queen in Windsor when he came face to face with the TV duo who came out to get a glimpse of Her Majesty.

When the 94-year-old Prince approaches them, Sandra tried to explain to The Queen’s husband what Gogglebox is and how the concept works.

The Duke was less than impressed though, and said “Well, I won’t be watching you, that’s for sure”

He quickly moved on down the line to speak to other members of the public who have come out to meet the royal couple before moving down the line to speak to other members of the crowd.

The moment was captured on video and was posted on the social media platform Twitter.

Gogglebox is a BAFTA winning British reality show which features reoccurring stars from across the UK from watching weekly British television shows and reviewing them.

Sandra Martin and Sandy Channer have appeared on the show since its inception, and are keen royal enthusiasts. They were also in the crowd gathered for the birth of Princess Charlotte last year.

Prince Philip is famous for his off the cuff remarks which have often caused lots of humour as well as controversy.
He famously said in 1999 to a group of deaf children standing by a Caribbean steel band: “If you’re near that music it’s no wonder you’re deaf”.

Speaking to a group of exchange students in China, he said: “If you stay here much longer you’ll all be slitty–eyed.”

Prince Philip certainly has a way with words, and we can look forward to many more quips in the future.
