Prince Philip’s death ‘mocked’ by duo posing with Prosecco outside palace
Prince Philip's death was allegedly "disrespected" by a pair of men who went to Buckingham Palace with a bottle of Prosecco while mourners gathered to pay tribute.
The Queen's husband of 73 years died at home in Windsor Castle on Friday, April 9, at the age of 99.
While many people gathered at Buckingham Palace to leave flowers and condolences, a pair of men were spotted allegedly doing something less savoury.
In the clip, filmed by GB News political correspondent Tom Harwood, one of the men grins outside the palace with a bottle of Prosecco in his hand while a pal takes a photo.
Harwood then confronts them and asks what they are doing.
"Hi mate I'm sorry, I hope you're not about to pop that?" he asks.
"No, no I'm not," the guy holding the bottle replies, before adding: "Who are you sorry?"
Harwood says: "It doesn't matter who I am. I was hoping if you were going to that, you'd pop it over there or something.
"It might be a bit more respectful."
The man with the Prosecco says: "I'm not being disrespectful."
His mate then pipes up: "It is a celebration of death."
The two guys then cycle off away from the palace.
Harwood uploaded the footage on social media and wrote in the caption: "As these two started to open their Prosecco bottles – presumably intending to pop them over the crowd – I walked over.
"They decided to stop opening their bottles and moved on. Wise."
The footage has since been watched more than 30,000 times and many Twitter uses were horrified by what they saw.
One person commented; "You dealt with that pair of posh sounding 'class warriors' extremely well Tom."
second viewer said: "Well done Tom. How people could contemplate being so disrespectful is disgusting."
