Prince Philip only had one complaint about Queen Elizabeth II during their entire marriage, one royal author claimed.

The Duke of Edinburgh reportedly only complained about the Queen “always being on the phone.”

“He said to me, ‘God, she’s never off the phone. Never off the phone. Who is she talking to?'” royal biographer Gyles Brandreth said during an appearance on “Lorraine,” the Daily Mail noted Wednesday. (RELATED: Queen Elizabeth II Speaks Out For The First Time Since Prince Philip’s Death)

“It was the only time he ever complained about the queen,” Brandreth continued. “He knew his whole life was supporting the queen. He never put a foot wrong, he always turned up right day, right uniform, on time, one step behind her.”

The royal family announced Prince Philip died at Windsor Castle on April 9 at the age of 99. The family celebrated the life of the Duke of Edinburgh on Sunday.

Queen Elizabeth II spoke out for the first time Wednesday since the death of her husband Prince Philip as she celebrated her 95th birthday.

“While as a family we are in a period of great sadness, it has been a comfort to us all to see and to hear the tributes paid to my husband, from those within the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth and around the world,” Elizabeth II’s statement said.

“My family and I would like to thank you for all the support and kindness shown to us in recent days,” she continued. “We have been deeply touched, and continue to be reminded that Philip had such an extraordinary impact on countless people throughout his life.”
