Jesus was the Uri Geller of his day says Duke of Edinburgh

Duke-of-EdinburghTHE Duke of Edinburgh has claimed Jesus was the Uri Geller of his day and that one of the most venerated Christian miracles in the Bible was a trick.


Prince Philip, who celebrated his 90th birthday on Friday and was at The Queen's side for today's Trooping of the Colour celebrations, confessed his suspicions to The Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu.

Dr Sentamu said that while preaching at Sandringham the Duke had suggested other possibilities behind the famous Wedding at Cana miracle where, according to the Bible, Jesus turned water into wine.

The possibilities included “a Uri Geller-type explanation", the Archbishop said before adding that the Queen came to the rescue, saying: "Philip and his theories!"

Uri Geller became famous in the 1970's for his apparent ability to bend pieces of cutlery using the power of his mind. He claims to have psychic powers but has been accused of trickery and hokum.

But it was business as usual for the 90-year-old  royal today. He played a supporting role to the Queen as her 85th birthday was celebrated with one of the world's greatest spectacles of pageantry in London.

And not even the Queen herself was the centre of attention as the spotlight shifted to royal newlyweds KATE MIDDLETON and PRINCE WILLIAM for the Trooping the Colour celebration.

William, in full military dress complete with bearskin, rode a grey charger while Kate joined  Prince Harry, the Duchess of Cornwall and Duke of York in an open-topped horse-drawn carriage.
