With the recent passing of HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, and today his funeral and laying to rest, I believe it would be a fitting tribute to the late Prince to be made a British Captain in WoWS.

It is widely known and respected that Prince Philip was a well known British Naval Officer in WW2, playing a critical role during the battle of Cape Matapan aboard HMS Valiant and also saving the HMS Wallace and crew from Luftwaffe attacks during the Invasion of Sicily. While ultimately stepping down and away from a promising career in the Navy to serve alongside HM The Queen, he kept very close ties with the service and was ultimately granted the Rank and Title of Lord High Admiral of the United Kingdom.

 

I hope others will agree and join in this forum to pay tribute to a fine former Royal Navy Officer, a Prince of the United Kingdom, and Consort to HM The Queen.

Aristocracy really has the worst of both worlds nowadays. The fools adoring and expecting tribute for their figureheads are also the ones that dont hold back from kicking them out in a fruit box under the right circumstances.

Pururut its not the Monarchy that people have issue with, its when others that believe that, because they are now a part of our Monarchy even in a limited capacity that believe that they are above everybody for being a ''Royal''.
HRH Prince Philip Deceased had an outstanding naval carer spanning 14 years active and was still in service till his death earlier this year.  
we are not saying ''He is a Royal put him in the game because he died'' we are asking as an admiral of the fleet for the royal navy and a distinguished Admiral at that who had command of the HMS Magpie and was a loyal serviceman up until his death that should be honoured. he fought in the war as Halsey did he fought as Isoroku did just he survived longer. surely he should be treated the same.
