He is the true King who sits on the throne. However, if Queen Elizabeth wanted, she could have given Prince Philip the title of ‘Fellow King’.  But did not feel the need.

He is also the chairman of the Duke of Edinburgh Special Award for Youth. But Philip has tried to differentiate himself from modern environmentalists. Being a man of conservative outlook, he said he would not curl up with rabbits. However, he was very interested in wildlife conservation. He was also interested in technology and sports.
