Prince Harry is set to appear alongside other members of the royal family including Prince Charles and Prince William to share personal thoughts and reflections on the Duke of Edinburgh for a new BBC One tribute film.
Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, which is set to air on Wednesday 22 September at 9pm on BBC One, will feature interviews from all of the monarch, 95, and Philip’s children – the Prince of Wales, 72, the Princess Royal, 71, the Duke of York, 61, and the Earl of Wessex, 57.
The Duke’s adult grandchildren, the Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, will also provide their personal memories of the royal during the film.
While interviews were filmed before and after Prince Philip’s death in April, it is unclear where they were conducted, if royals will appear on screen together or whether interviews were filmed separately.

The BBC said Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers would feature ‘poignant recollections, plenty of humour and numerous fresh insights into the character and legacy of this royal pioneer’.
The Queen also granted special access to her private cine-film collection for the programme.
The documentary-makers went inside Buckingham Palace to meet the duke’s long-serving staff and to capture his study, private office and library as they were were during his seven decades of public service.
It was originally conceived to mark the duke’s 100th birthday in June, but the nation’s longest-serving consort died two months before his centenary.

The programme is set to include interviews filmed both before and after Philip’s death.
The BBC added: ‘With special access to the Queen’s private cine-film collection, this film is an unrivalled portrait of a man with a unique place in royal history – by those who knew him best.’
It is not the first time the royals have opened up about the Duke since his death in April, with several members of The Firm revealing personal memories on what would have been his 100th birthday this summer.
Prince Philip died of ‘old age’, his death certificate revealed. The Duke of Edinburgh died ‘peacefully’ aged 99 on April 9, Buckingham Palace announced at the time.
