Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers

Promo
Featuring exclusive contributions from Prince Philip’s family, friends and colleagues and including home movies from the Royal Archives, this landmark documentary celebrating The Duke of Edinburgh’s life and legacy is – “a love letter to Prince Philip from his family”.

Uniquely, this is a story we will tell from the inside facing outwards, rather than the outside looking in. With exclusive contributions from The Duke’s children and grandchildren, we explore Prince Philip’s early life as the youngest child of an exiled royal family; his nomadic childhood, his war service and the courtship which would propel him in to another world. We see his early struggles with an unbending Palace establishment; how the young Queen entrusted him with organising family life and the royal estates; how he has guided successive royal generations through the challenges and pitfalls of royal life; and how he carved out a unique role in shaping the modern monarchy.

This is a portrait of a decorated naval officer, pioneering conservationist, sportsman, son, husband, father, grand-father and great-grand-father – as told through the memories and experiences of those who knew him best: his family.
