In one-off film Prince Philip: The Family Remembers, the Duke of Edinburgh’s closest family talk at length about what made the Queen's consort such an impressive figure.
Watch a trailer below:
While the film was being made in honour of the Prince’s 100th birthday, additional scenes were filmed followed news of Prince Philip’s death earlier this year.
And now, Prince Harry, who quit royal duties alongside wife Meghan Markle in 2020, has talked about some of his favourite memories with his grandfather, with the pair having shared a close personal relationship.
“In cricket, most people want to get to a century,” the Duke of Sussex explained. “He had fantastic innings and it’s almost as though, at 99, he scored a six – but he didn’t actually want to get a century.
“More than anything, I miss his humour. Bur I miss him more for my grandmother because I know how incredibly strong she was with him there.
Prince Philip was married to Queen Elizabeth II for over 70 years, with their partnership one of the longest-running partnership in British royal history.
Prince Harry touched some more on Prince Philip’s well-known sense of humour, and how his cheekiness often rubbed off on Her Majesty.
“When the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh come to visit somewhere, everyone would make sure that everything would have to be absolutely right,” the 37-year-old explained.
“But really, they loved it when things go wrong, as they were so used to things going right all the time. They found it exciting.
“I remember the expressions on his face when we were younger, and there was all this craziness happening around him.
“He’d sit there with his arms crossed, so completely calmly, and watch us run by and say ‘zoom’. He made time for all of us.”
Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers airs Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One.
