The 2nd male consort in recent history, Prince Phillip to his dismay is no Albert. Queen Victoria's Albert and Prince Phillip are very similar men. The only difference is, Prince Albert did not have two powerful "Dowager Queens" who strong armed him.
Couldn't even put his name on the royal house, upon Charles taking the crown, which I think is just plan wrong. They should have let the house change. Change is a good thing.
However, despite the above, Prince Phillip has made a name for himself not only as the Queen's biggest support, but has jumped into science, tv documentaries, parton of various orginizations, and his probably the most "human" of the royals with his plan talk, and quick wit.
