Britain's Duke of Edinburgh was amused when a soldier from the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards accidentally swore in front of him.

Britain's Prince Philip was amused by a swearing soldier.

Queen Elizabeth's husband chuckled good-naturedly when an unnamed military man let slip the f-word during Philip's official visit to the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards in Aldershot, Hamphshire, yesterday.

The 92-year-old royal, who has been Colonel of the regiment since 1975, was watching a friendly football match between corporals and guardsmen when one player came off the pitch.

Philip asked the exhausted soldier, "Are you all right?", to which he replied, "No, I'm f****d."

The solider also let out an expletive-filled rant about how much pain he was in, before looking up and realising exactly who he was speaking to.

According to the MailOnline, the man walked away looking sheepish but was "heartily amused" by his mistake.

Philip chatted to soldiers during his visit to the Lille Barracks, and recalled one of his own visits to the South Atlantic after hearing about how The Queen's Company had spent eight weeks in the Falkland Islands.

He joked: "I tried fly fishing for sea trout but nothing happened."

The royal also posed for a picture with officers and presented long service medals to three sergeants.

Lieutenant Colonel Chips Broughton, commanding officer of the battalion, said: "It's an honour. He is our regimental colonel. He has been a tremendous supporter of the Grenadiers."
