A Labour MP last night went on a rant about the Royal Family mocking Prince Harry’s Army career and accusing Prince Philip of cheating on the Queen.
Kensington MP Emma Dent Coad abused the senior Royals at a fringe meeting at Labour’s party conference in Brighton.
She wrongly claimed Prince Harry was not qualified to fly Apache helicopters – despite him deployed as a gunner to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan.
The astonishing rant – which saw the MP declare herself the Royal Family’s ‘worst nightmare’ – won applause from Labour delegates at the anti-monarchy meeting.
She said: ‘Harry can’t actually fly a helicopter so they had to make him co-pilot.
‘So he just sits there going ‘vroom vroom’.’
He was a qualified pilot of Apache helicopters and served as the gunner – meaning he was able to operate the helicopter’s weapons as well as flying the craft himself.
Ms Dent Coad said that Harry and William are ‘not very bright’, adding: ‘Just let them drift away, be playboys or whatever.’
And in a further assault on the Royal Family the MP accused Prince Philip – who is retiring from public duties after decades of support for the Queen – of being unfaithful.
Ms Dent Coad said:’The Queen might want to step back when her (cough, cough) soulmate is gone.’
She added in an aside: ‘He’s been quite unfaithful for quite a few years.’
