Prince Harry impersonates the Queen in hilarious moment as he buries the hatchet with Royals to pay tribute to Philip

PRINCE Harry impersonates the Queen in a hilarious moment during a new documentary on Prince Philip.

The Duke of Sussex also paid tribute to his grandparents Philip, who died aged 99 in April, and the Queen as "the most adorable couple".

Harry, 37, is among the royals sharing their memories in Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, which airs on BBC One tomorrow.

The show features all of Philip's children – Charles, 72, Anne, 71, Andrew 61, and Edward, 55.

Grandchildren William, Beatrice, Eugenie, Harry, Peter Philips and ZaraTindall also recall their fondest memories of the Duke of Edinburgh.

Harry is seen looking through flight logs from his grandfather – a qualified pilot – from a 1983 trip to Africa.


The duke said: "He was doing all the flying himself, or certainly chunks of it.

"When you’re flying, you don’t get an easy pass just for being the Duke of Edinburgh. You very much have to put in the work and prove your skill.

"But also he had an amazing privilege to get behind the controls and fly aircraft all around the world.

"I can just imagine my grandmother sitting in the back of a plane having a cup of tea, going through turbulence and going “Oh Philip! What are you doing?”’

The BBC programme was commissioned originally to celebrate the Duke of Edinburgh’s 100th birthday.

Interviews were filmed before and after Prince Philip's death, with Harry;s segments in his first "family project’ since quitting royal duties filmed in the US.

Harry said he most missed his grandfather's "sense of humour".

I miss him more for my grandmother because I know how incredibly strong she was with him there

He added: "But I miss him more for my grandmother because I know how incredibly strong she was with him there. I also know she will be ok without him.

"The two of them together were just the most adorable couple.

"To me knowing the cheekiness of him and knowing that behind what the world sees you have two individuals who were very much in love and both, from a very young age, have dedicated their life to service… that is an incredible bond between two people."

During the programme, William also revealed Philip would ask his grandchildren to hold a tube of mustard before removing the lid off when they were having barbecues at Balmoral.

William said: "He would squish your hands together to fire the mustard up into the ceiling. 


"He used to get into a lot of trouble with my grandmother for covering most of the places where we had lunch with mustard on the ceiling."

Peter Phillips confirmed that there are still marks on the ceiling from the mustard.

Prince Charles also reveals his final conversation with his father, Prince Philip, the day before he died.

The Prince of Wales spoke to his father about plans to celebrate his 100th birthday.

He called the Duke of Edinburgh at Windsor on April 8 and asked about a party to celebrate his centenary in June, the Daily Mail reports.

With Philip's hearing failing he had to speak up and said to him: "We're talking about your birthday!

"And whether there's going to be reception!"

Philip replied: "Well, I've got to be alive for it, haven't I?"

In what may have been their last ever conversation, Charles said: "I knew you'd say that!"

The interviews were stared at the beginning of 2021 to celebrate Philip’s 100th birthday in June.

It is now a tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh after his death on April 9.
