During a violent argument, the Queen reportedly flung a pair of shoes and a tennis racket at Prince Philip.
In 1954, the couple was on a royal tour of Australia when they were allowed a rare weekend off.

However, the duo were also making a documentary about their visit, and according to royal researcher Ingrid Seward, author of Prince Philip Revealed, tempers were frayed.

“Their tempers were quite strained,” she told Fox News. This film team was standing outside their small vacation home.

“Then Prince Philip came on the balcony, accompanied by a tennis racquet and a pair of tennis shoes hurled at his head.”

“The Queen came out and yelled at him to return.” She then snatched [Philip] and pulled him back inside the house.

“Of course, you can image how nervous this frumpy press secretary was at the moment.”

According to Seward, the royal press secretary requested that the team turn off their cameras or face jail.

She explained: “He ran over to the crew and said, ‘We cannot have this on film. This is a disaster. Give me your film. You weren’t mean to be filming this.'”

According to Seward, the film was presented to Her Majesty, who afterwards came out to greet and thank the crew.

“I apologise for that little pause,” she allegedly told them. But, as you are aware, this occurs in every marriage, doesn’t it?”

It’s no secret that the royal pair, who were married for 74 years, had their share of squabbles, according to Seward.

“He was extremely sharp with his wife,” she claimed. He used to drive at breakneck speeds everywhere, which made her anxious.

“As a result, she began to take deep breathes. ‘If you keep breathing like that, I’ll get you out of the car,’ he’d say.

“Once upon a time, someone seated next to her suggested, ‘Why don’t you tell him off?'” ‘Because I know he’ll stop the car and throw me out!’ she explained.

“But the Queen gives it back just as much,” the author continues. He would call her a bloody fool and accuse her of talking rubbish. She’ll then start speaking in riddles while he attempts to figure out what she’s on about.”

This Saturday (April 9) commemorates one year since the death of the Duke of Edinburgh, who died at the age of 99.

It comes after a memorial ceremony in his honour was held last week (March 29) at Westminster Abbey, with 1,800 people in attendance.

Buckingham Palace has been contacted for comment by The Daily Star.
