An impatient Prince Philip was caught on camera during a photocall for the Battle of Britain and appeared to say: 'Just take the f****** picture.'

The Duke of Edinburgh, 94, seemed to lose patience at how long it was taking for the photographs to be taken at the RAF Club today.

In the clip, he repeatedly said 'just take it' and gesturing before dropping the f-word, after which laughter is heard.

The photocall, which he attended with Prince William, Prince Edward and Edward's wife Sophie.

A spokesman for Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the incident.

This afternoon, the RAF Club in London's Piccadilly, hosted a lunch for the airmen and members of the royal party, including the Duke of Edinburgh and Prince William.

The Queen remained at Buckingham Palace where she held audiences.

This morning, the monarch had led members of the Royal Family in commemorating the 75th anniversary of the start of the Battle of Britain.

The Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of York were among the senior royals who joined the monarch as she watched an RAF fly-past from the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

In the courtyard below, six veterans of the pivotal conflict looked to the sky as Spitfires and Hurricanes - two of the aircraft they used to defeat the Luftwaffe - flew in formation over the Mall.

The aircraft were joined by their modern counterparts, Typhoon jets, which produced a deafening roar.

Meanwhile, outside the palace gates, hundreds of people gathered on the streets to witness the stunning display and remember the glorious Few who valiantly halted Hitler's plans for a German invasion.

In the summer of 1940, after defeating the French, Hitler turned his attention across the Channel.

Luftwaffe planes began air attacks in early July, hoping to seize control of the skies over England in preparation for a German invasion.

Above the sweeping countryside of Kent and Sussex, the nation's future was placed in the hands of a small band of young RAF fighter pilots.

Some 3,000 of them fought - day-in, day-out - until victory was declared over the Luftwaffe in September but it came at a cost and 544 lost their lives.

Today, six veterans of the conflict, now all believed to be in their 90s, watched the fly-past from the courtyard of the palace.

THE GIFT OF THE GAFFE: PRINCE PHILIP'S BIGGEST BLUNDERS

Prince Philip is known for being the most gaffe-prone member of the Royal Family, not shy of expressing his uncensored and often politically incorrect opinion on a variety of subjects. Here are some of his biggest blunders:

In one of his most infamous gaffes, the Duke of Edinburgh's said that British students would become 'slitty-eyed' if they stayed in China.

The state visit in 1986 became renowned for the incident, after he advised the youngsters: 'If you stay here much longer you will all be slitty-eyed'.

In a BBC documentary to mark his 90th birthday, he remarked: 'I'd forgotten about it. But for one particular reporter who overheard it, it wouldn't have come out.'

At a 400-strong Buckingham Palace reception for British Indians in October 2009, Prince Philip told Indian businessman Atul Patel: 'There's a lot of your family in tonight.'


During a state visit to Australia in 2002, Prince Philip asked Aborigines: 'Do you still throw spears at each other?'


Another Buckingham Palace guest in 2009 with a goatee told Prince Philip he was a designer. He got this response: ‘Well, you didn’t design your beard too well, did you?’

In a state visit to Australia in March 2002, the Prince asked Aborigines: 'Do you still throw spears at each other?' Cultural park manager William Brim replied: 'No, we don't do that any more.'

And he once asked a Kenyan dancer during a state visit: ‘You are a woman, aren’t you?'

Navy sea cadet instructor Elizabeth Rendle, 24, who works in a bar, was asked 'Is it a strip club?' by the Prince.

She said: 'It was a joke and I didn't take any offence,' after the blunder in Exeter, Devon, in March 2010.

As he opened a £5.5million facility at Luton and Dunstable Hospital in 2013, he told a Filipino nurse: ‘The Philippines must be half-empty – you’re all here running the NHS.’

And while meeting members of a Bangladeshi youth club in Central London, the Duke of Edinburgh sat among them and cheerily enquired: 'So, who's on drugs here?'

And pointing at 14-year-old Shahin Ullah, Philip smirked and observed: 'He looks as if he's on drugs.'

In 2013, spotting pretty Hannah Jackson, 25, on a trip with his wife to Bromley in Kent, the elderly royal turned to the policeman standing next to her and gestured towards her eye-catching peplum-style red dress which had a zip running the length of its front.

‘I would get arrested if I unzipped that dress!’ he exclaimed.
