Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh died a couple of months ago but still remains in the memory of his country and his family. Now, surprising us all, Prince Harry and Prince William reunite to remember their grandfather in the upcoming documentary 'Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers.'
The trailer has just been released and in it, we can see both the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex sharing their thoughts. "He's always been a huge presence behind everything we have done really," says William while Harry adds "What you see is what you got with my grandfather. He was unapologetically him." This is the first time that we technically see Prince Harry and Prince William together after unveiling the Princess Diana statue. Before that, Prince Harry visited his family to honor Prince Philip at his funeral.
According to the BBC, more than a dozen members of the royal family who offered "personal thoughts and reflections as they pay a historic tribute to the extraordinary life" of Philip "We were lucky to have him for nearly a hundred years," says Prince Charles who also appears in the trailer. As a side note, it has been reported that Kate Middleton nor Meghan Markle participated in this upcoming documentary.
Princess Anne’s daughter Zara Tindell also appears in the trailer and you can see that she gets emotional while talking. “You never really prepare yourself for losing him ’cause he was always there.” The trailer also includes never-before footage of Prince Philip. For example, we've got to see a young Philip racing daughter Princess Anne and son Prince Charles on bikes as Elizabeth runs after them. Another clip shows Philip in a rowboat with his youngest son Prince Edward and a different scene shows Prince Philip drinking from a trophy and laughing.
“With special access to the Queen’s private cine-film collection, this film is an unrivaled portrait of a man with a unique place in royal history — by those who knew him best,” the BBC told the website in a statement. The one-of-a-kind tribute is a must-see event for royal fans because as well as their access to senior members of the royal family, the filmmakers were also allowed to meet Philip's loyal staff and to capture his private office, library, and study.
According to People, the documentary from Oxford Films, which made the successful Queen at 90 five years ago, was conceived to mark that centenary and features interviews filmed both before and after Philip's death. Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers will premiere in the U.K. on BBC One Wednesday, September 22 at 9 p.m. on BBC. A U.S. premiere date has not been announced.
