In Parliament this week the Archbishop described a tricky lunch at
Sandringham, facing theological interrogation from Prince Philip
HRH, producing a spoon which had been bent for him by Uri Geller
suggested the miracle at Cana, when Jesus turned water into wine
might have been a Geller‐style affair. 
A stumped Sentamu was saved by the Queen. ‘To my rescue came
that still, small voice of calm from Her Majesty saying:
“Philip and his theories!”'

The Archbishop revealed that the Duke of Edinburgh has a ‘keen
interest’ in theological questions. “Bishops who are invited to stay
and preach at Sandringham face a barrage of serious theological
questions over lunch, and there is nowhere to hide. He listens
appreciatively but never uncritically. In my case, the sermon was
based on Jesus turning water into wine at Cana of Galilee.
“In conversation, the Duke suggested many possible explanations for
the miracle, including a Uri Geller‐type explanation, and he produced
a spoon which Uri Geller had bent for him. To my rescue came that
still small voice of calm from Her Majesty the Queen, saying, ‘Philip
and his theories!’
