Prince Philip broke his 3-year-long public silence yesterday with an Instagram post, and a royal expert from Vanity Fair has put it that he has had long interest and indeed a ‘passion for science’, giving away the motif for his statement.
The 98-year-old consort delivered his gratitude to the workers out there in teh field who are sustaining and supporting the UK so that ‘the infrastructure of our life continues’
This is very unusual indeed coming from the Prince himself, since he officially retired from the public stage in 2017, and has had a hiatus in public appearance or speech when he was hospitalized recently.
To quote the Vanity Fair contributor: ‘This is not about Philip trying to reach out to the nation, he leaves that to the Queen…He’s always been interested in science, it’s always been a passion and he’ll be very interested by it all and the rush to try and find a vaccine.’ ‘
Ingrid also says supporting charities he has coordinated with and giving support and public attention to whomever needing it was a number one priority of the Prince. Also, his particular involvement this time might be related to the Queen and him being very interested in the lay out of the whole crisis since its onset. The Queen and her husband has been in self-isolation in Windsor Castle, prudently watching the progression of the disease and its effect upon the country.
In the most surprising public decree, Philip not only thanked the usual medical personnel, but also the workers who are in constant labor to keep the infrastructure going.
In his tribute, he said: ‘As we approach World Immunisation Week, I wanted to recognise the vital and urgent work being done by so many to tackle the pandemic; by those in the medical and scientific professions, at universities and research institutions, all united in working to protect us from Covid-19.
On behalf of those of us who remain safe and at home, I also wanted to thank all key workers who ensure the infrastructure of our life continues; the staff and volunteers working in food production and distribution, those keeping postal and delivery services going, and those ensuring the rubbish continues to be collected.
