The Duke of Edinburgh has revealed how he deliberately retreated from media exposure to stop himself from being an embarrassment. Philip, known for his plentiful gaffes over the years, said: "I reckon I have done something right if I don't appear in the media So I've retreated - quite consciously - so as not to be an embarrassment." His comments appear in broadcaster Jeremy Paxman's new book On Royalty, which is being serialised in the Daily Mail.
