It was originally intended to be an event documentary to mark Prince Philip’s 100th birthday. Sadly, the Duke of Edinburgh passed away two months before his birthday, and the project turned into a tribute to the one who accompanied the Queen for 73 years. The documentary therefore includes interviews shot both before and after the death of Prince Philip. Among those interviewed, we find several members of the royal family including Prince William, Prince Harry, Prince Charles, Zara Tindall, Kate Middleton and Princess Eugenie. All of them draw an intimate portrait of Prince Philip, which we also rediscover through the dissemination of unique archives. “He has always been an important presence in everything we have done,” said Prince William in the trailer. “What he shows is what he is. My grandfather has always been himself, without fear of what will be said,” Prince Harry adds. For his part, Prince Charles considers himself happy with the time spent with his father. “We have been fortunate to have him by our side for almost 100 years.” Zara Tindall, Princess Anne’s daughter, said moved: “You’re never really prepared to lose someone like him because he’s always been there.”

William and Harry, reunited again
Far distant since the departure of the younger brother across the Atlantic, William and Harry have had the opportunity to meet a few times, as at the funeral of Prince Philip last April, or at the inauguration of the statue of Princess Diana , in July. This unprecedented documentary broadcast by the BBC was an opportunity for the two brothers to meet again to celebrate their beloved grandfather.
