The Duke of Clarence uses "nobless oblige" as his reason for saluting Wilberforce's achievement. However, the first recorded use of the phrase was in Honoré de Balzac's book "Le Lys dans la vallée", written in 1835 and published in 1836. Wilberforce's last appearance in Parliament was in 1824, when he resigned due to illness.
