    Ah, the CNN comments section, where the American people's knowledge of the World is displayed for the rest of the World's amusement!

      Gelli, if it wasn't for Americans you lot would be speaking German. Now that would be amusing.

      Whatt, I was lucky. Nobody forced me to read the article. Someone said you HAD to read it? That's terrible.

    Phil – Contrary to much that is taught in America, the Americans weren't the ONLY force in WWII and the British were quite the powerful force. Idiot.

      Oh yes, you must be talking about Dunkirk where your whole bloody army was trapped and forced to flee. Additionally, did you ever repay "lend-lease"? How much longer is England going to be able to hold onto Northern Ireland and Scotland?

    UTI are common in the elderly. Left untreated can certainly lead to a bladder infection.

    Are you kidding me? The man is 90 years old. Inbreeding has nothing to do with it!

    Yeah, I've never heard of a 90 year old who's gotten a minor bladder infection either. Must be bad genes.

    Phil, if it weren't for the Soviet Union, the entire world would be speaking German.

      Now we've heard a bit of non-historically-accurate-nonsense from the peanut gallery about the failed soviet union ha ha ha ah.

    He reportedly told Her Majesty "You know, I'd hate to pee on your parade" and instead admitted himself to the hospital.

    Don't speak about all Americans. I happen to admire the Royal family for all they have done for the United Kingdom and the world. Good will is something the entire world needs and the British Royal family are very good at giving. My prayer is Prince Phillip has a speedy recovery and I hope the Queen continues to have good health for many years.
