Prince William said: “[Philip] stopped and wound down his window and said, ‘Good morning. How are you getting on?

“To which the smallest young chap at the back turned round and effectively said, ‘Jog on Grandpa!’”

The Daily Mail reports The Duke of Cambridge admitted the reply was blunt, but his grandfather saw the funny side of it.

After the young lad’s cheeky reply, Prince Philip turned to his grandson and quipped: “The youth of today!”
