Prince Philip speaks for all men.
It is an awkward but little-discussed matrimonial duty which has sorely taxed all but the most dexterous of husbands. Now the Duke of Edinburgh has spoken out about the “infernal” problem of undoing jewellery clasps.

The Duke of Edinburgh is famed for his foot-in-mouth moments but yesterday he was being spotted with his fingers in his ears at the Royal Variety Show. The Duke, 91, made the gesture during a performance by American singer Alicia Keys, according to reports in the Evening Standard.
