During an interview with Variety, Matt Smith from 'The Crown' disclosed that Prince Philip is the favored royal among the palace staff, a fact he discovered while researching his role! "In the royal house he’s the most popular of all of them. If you've talked to any of the staff, Philip's the one they all love really," Smith said. "I think more than a lot of them, he's a bit more of a man of the people."
Smith continued to explain that among all of the prestigious family members, "The royal protocol hasn’t dogged him in quite the same way his whole life and there’s a sort of rebellion in him and a naughtiness and a cheekiness. I think he’s quite affable and open by all accounts with the staff. They all love him," Smith said.
Looks like Prince Philip wins the Mister Congeniality competition in Kensington Palace!
