Mccartneys Accused Prince Philip Of Hypocrisy

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY and his late wife LINDA branded British royal PRINCE PHILIP a hypocrite for enjoying hunting despite his role as president of the World Wildlife Fund. Prince Philip was president of the animal conservation organisation until 1996 - and Linda was less than happy about the Queen's husband's appointment. Paul recalls, "She was the ballsiest woman, a very strong lady and once took Prince Philip on and that was a nice little moment. "Because she was American, she talked to him just like he was a bloke, not all reverent like the British do. "She said, 'You're the head of a worldwide wildlife organisation, how can you go out shooting birds? 'Are you vegetarian,' he asked, trying to catch us out. "'Yeah' we both answered. President of a wildlife organisation shooting birds, that's hypocrisy." Linda died in 1998 after a long battle with cancer.
