‘Ladies fell for him’: Queen’s private secretary addresses Prince Philip ‘cheating’ claims

‘Ladies fell for him’: Queen’s private secretary addresses Prince Philip ‘cheating’ claims

The latest series explores Philip’s relationship with Countess Mountbatten of Burma, Penny Knatchbull. 

Dickie claimed the friendship was based on a common interest in carriage driving which the Duke took up at the age of 71 as he could no longer play polo. 

He said: “Penny had lost her daughter and was completely at a loss and [The Crown] had this made-up scene of Penny showing a carriage that was in one of their yards, which never happened.”

Dickie stressed: “It’s good drama, that’s what it’s all about but what you shouldn’t believe are the words attached to it and some of the events as well.”
