Prince Philip zings Google

The Queen’s hubby made yet another one of his famous faux-pas last week during a visit to Google’s UK headquarters.

He and Queen Elizabeth II were checking out the Google Earth application when Prince Philip asked to see Google’s own new HQ, asking “Do you know where it is?”

The situation was worsened by the fact that there was, in fact, a gaping hole in the map where the HQ should’ve been, due to the program running off an older map.

The Prince continued on his merry way, later asking a Google employee–clad in the common casual tech worker garb of hooded top, chinos and runners–“Just come back from jogging?”

Jolly good show, old bean!
