BBC: Is Prince Philip an island god?

BBC Correspondent Report: Sunday, 10 June 2007, 00:03 GMT 01:03 UK

Legend had it that there was a clutch of villages on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu which – as bizarre as it may seem – worshipped Prince Philip as a god…I felt deeply foolish telling him I had come to his village to ask if he worshipped the Queen’s husband. I wondered if it was all some sort of elaborate joke. But the look on Chief Jack’s face told me it was not. He dispatched one of the villagers and a few minutes later the man returned from a hut with three framed pictures…They had all been sent from London with the discreet permission of Prince Philip, who is apparently well aware that he is the subject of such distant adoration.
