“I remember [Prince] Philip discussing public schools at one of our Thursday Club luncheons—those all-male get-togethers we had at Wheeler’s Tavern in Soho,” recalled harmonica player Larry Adler. “I told him I saw public schools as factories for manufacturing homosexuals. James Robertson Justice, a fine actor and a gruff Scotsman, joined the conversation.

“‘Oh God, Adler, are you on that dreary hobbyhorse of yours again?’ he said. ‘I was buggered my first week at Eton. Did me no harm whatsoever.’

“‘Well, James,’ I said, ‘it was different with you, as everyone else had to turn out to watch you being buggered because of the school motto: Justice Must Not Only Be Done, He Must Be Seen To Be Done.’ Philip howled with laughter.”
