On 22 September, BBC will be airing their latest documentary, Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, as a tribute to the late royal’s legacy. The documentary will feature exclusive interviews from several important members of the royal family, including Prince Harry.
Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers
BBC had been working on this documentary long before the passing of Prince Philip as it was initially supposed to mark his 100th birthday—which was on 10 June. Now the ‘historic programme’ will include interviews from royals both before and after his death. The broadcasting company said the 60-minute documentary would have ‘poignant recollections, plenty of humour, and numerous fresh insights into the character and legacy of this royal pioneer.’
They announced that all the children and grandchildren of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have participated in the documentary. BCC states in a press release:
All the children of the Queen and the Duke, along with their adult grandchildren and other members of the Royal Family, have agreed to take part in this unique portrait of the longest-serving consort in royal history.
It remains unclear whether we will see the Queen opening up about the passing of her husband herself, but she did have a sizeable role to play in the making of the documentary, as she granted the company special access to her ‘private cine-film collection.’
One thing that’s certain, however, is that the death of Prince Philip has once again reunited Prince Harry with his royal clan.
Prince Philip’s death brings Harry back
Ever since Prince Harry, and his wife Meghan Markle, stepped away from royal duties in 2020, the rift between them and the royal family has been getting bigger and bigger by the day. When Prince Philip passed away in April, we saw Prince Harry and Prince William side by side after what seemed like ages.
While both the Princes have been quite active individually, Harry with his docu-seriesThe Me You Can't Seeand William with his new YouTube channel, this is the first time we’ll be seeing the brothers share the same screen in a long time.
The documentary will be aired on BBC One at 9pm on Wednesday 22 September.
