Bad news for Prince Philip: one of his favorite cooks has been fired. The sacking of Adam Steele, 28, came after his arrest for allegedly head-butting a Buckingham Palace colleague during a gathering in the staff's living area, the Daily Mail reports. "No one knows what exactly was said to Adam, but it was something like, 'You've had enough; it's time to stop drinking,'" a source tells the paper. "Whatever it was, the next thing the other man has blood over his face and a cut eyebrow." Steele spent the night in a police cell and was fired after an internal palace investigation, the Mail notes.
