Royal Family, Including Andrew and Harry, Uniting For New Prince Philip Film
The Royal Family has been hard at work on a new tribute to Prince Philip. Today, the BBC announced the new documentary Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, which features interviews with most of the royals. Here are the details on the film about the late Duke of Edinburgh.
The Royal Family has come together on a new film in memory of Prince Philip.
Today, the BBC announced that the royals have collaborated on a documentary titled Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers. It will show on BBC1 on Sept. 22, and it features interviews with the late Duke's children and grandchildren.
Royal Family's new Prince Philip film includes Andrew, Harry
The Queen wasn't interviewed for the film, but the release says to expect appearances by "all" her children. This would include Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and, yes, even Prince Andrew, despite his ongoing scandal.
Likewise, Prince Philip's adult grandchildren will honour him in the project, so expect Prince Harry to speak about his grandfather, along with Prince William and their cousins.
The BBC calls the tribute a "unique portrait" that will feature "poignant recollections, plenty of humour and numerous fresh insights into the character and legacy of this royal pioneer."
The Royal Family Remembers was for Prince Philip's 100th
The BBC also revealed that the new tribute was in the works for Prince Philip's 100th birthday, which would've fallen on June 10. However, the Duke of Edinburgh passed away two months shy of the milestone day.
So the film has been reworked and now includes interviews from before and after the death of the 99-year-old royal.
