‘All my best work is done under the hood at knight’

PRIME Minister Tony Abbott says Prince Phillip’s knighthood was not his fault as he chose Prince Andrew to receive the honour.

Mr Abbott said an admin error meant Prince Phillip was named a Knight of the Order of Australia for his service to the country instead of Prince Andrew for his servicing of women.

“I was as shocked as anyone when I heard of the mistake; Prince Andrew, after all, has done tremendous work in his field,” Mr Abbott said.

“I gave Andrew a call to apologise but he showed tremendous humility in saying he’d prefer to not be recognised for his activities.”
