A new BBC documentary on the life and legacy of Prince Philip will air on September 22, with the British royal family sharing their thoughts and paying tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh.

Titled Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, the programme will feature “more than a dozen members” of the British royal family, including Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip’s four children, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, as well as adult grandchildren.

This will include Prince William, Prince Harry and Zara Tindall. It appears Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle will not feature in the documentary.

The programme was originally intended to be shown for Prince Philip’s 100th birthday in June, meaning some of the interviews were filmed before his death. Other tributes have been filmed since his death at age 99 on April 9.

Viewers can expect an in-depth look at the life and career of Prince Philip as it's been revealed that filmmakers were given “special access” to the Queen’s private film collection.

“The documentary-makers have been inside Buckingham Palace to meet the Duke’s long-serving staff and to capture his study, private office and library, exactly as they were during his seven decades at the heart of royal life,” the BBC said about the documentary.

“There are poignant recollections, plenty of humour and numerous fresh insights into the character and legacy of this royal pioneer. This film is an unrivalled portrait of a man with a unique place in royal history – by those who know him best."

The documentary is not the first time Prince Harry will appear on screen since stepping away from royal duties with his wife in a move labelled “Megxit” by the media early in 2020.

One of his most notable appearances was in a bombshell sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey along with Meghan in March this year.
