UK Duke mocked blind hero


Prince Philip mocked a hero Army cadet blinded by a terrorist explosion by poking fun at his dress sense.

The Queen asked brave Stephen Menary how much sight he had left but before he could answer, the gaffe-prone Duke of Edinburgh joked: "Not a lot, judging by the tie he is wearing."

Menary was wearing a red, navy, and yellow striped tie when he met the Royals at London's Hyde Park. It is the uniform of the Middlesex and North West London Army Cadet Force.
