Burgundy and England got on very well after that, until the wily Charles VII bought the Duke off by granting him a dispensation from paying homage for his French lands.
However, the Count of Charolais is known to detest the Croys and his public criticism of their voracity has caused the minor rift between Philip and his heir, though not to the extent of that between Charles VII and the Dauphin Louis.
Observers believe Duke Philip favours the Yorkist side in our current conflict but it would be more accurate to say he took a personal liking to the late Earl of Salisbury whilst severely criticising the Earl of Warwick's piracy as Captain of Calais.
