Prince Phillip in cinema advert


A cinema advert for the Playing Fields Association featuring The Duke of Edinburgh in 1951 has been released to mark the re-launch of the British Monarchy website.

He appeared as 'the boss' in a short film that saw a group of children, discouraged from playing cricket in the street, writing a letter to Prince Phillip, asking him to help them find a place to play.
