MP that mocked Prince Harry’s Army career claims Prince Philip has been “unfaithful” to The Queen

The Member of Parliament for Kensington who spoke out against Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has also made allegations against the Duke of Edinburgh it has been revealed.

Emma Dent Coad, the newly elected MP for Kensington, claimed that Prince Philip has been “unfaithful” since his marriage to the then Princess Elizabeth in 1947.

She claims the 96-year-old has been “mucking about for years” and has “not been a faithful husband” while at a Labour Party conference in Brighton.

Ms Dent Coad has since confessed that her comments about Prince Harry “just [sitting] there going ‘vroom vroom'” have been wrong and the army veteran actually does know how to fly an Apache helicopter, she would not back down on calling out the Duke of Edinburgh.

The Evening Standard contacted Ms Dent Coad who stood her ground, saying: “Oh no, shock horror. I’m not going to respond to that, everyone knows what’s going on… I don’t want to get into the detail of it because it’s got out of hand.”

She added: “I was talking about whether taxpayers should fund the royal family.

“I was just poking fun. But we need a proper debate about the royal family. It’s about taxpayer funding. Why are taxpayers funding them? Why can’t I disagree? It seems like we are not allowed to have an opinion.

“I’m being called everything under the sun this morning, getting all sorts of vile abuse. This has opened the gates to hell.”

The MP has also targeted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, at the conference she said that it is “absolutely disgusting” that the Duchess bought jumpers at the cost of £150 each, saying: “That’s a food bill for a family of four.”

She also commented that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are ridiculous.

Ms Dent Coad initially said that Princes Harry and William are “not very bright”, saying: “Just let them drift away, be playboys or whatever.”
