Duke of Edinburgh on the buses?

I've just been over at Westminster Abbey where the Duke of Edinburgh opened the British Legion field of Remembrance. A very moving and simple service, made more poignant by the dreadful loss of life in Afghanistan, particularly yesterday's killings by an Afghan police trainee. On leaving, heavy traffic stopped the Duke's car being able the get to the exit to meet him. A bus blocked the way, and HRH joked 'are we getting on that?'. Thankfully the hold-up only lasted a minute or so, and he was able to depart in the Royal limo.
