Prince Harry opened up about his grandparents' marriage, life since Prince Philip passed, and the unexpected thing he misses most about his beloved grandpa.


Prince Harry said the thing he misses most about his grandfather is him being there for his grandmother the Queen. The heartbreaking revelation was made ahead of the broadcast of a highly anticipated tribute to Prince Philip.

For many, news that Prince Harry will reunite with Royal Family for the 'historic' Prince Philip tribute has been a great sign that they're all healing after truly an annus horribilis.

Speaking in the teaser clip the Duke of Sussex said he misses him, "more for my grandmother because I know how incredibly strong she was with him there. I also know she will be okay without him."

The young royal continued, "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."

He added proudly, "and both, from a very young age, have dedicated their life to service—that is an incredible bond between two people."

The Duke of Edinburgh is well remembered for his cheekiness and Prince Harry added that he does miss his humor a lot. It was also revealed that Prince Philip 'used to get in a lot of trouble' with the Queen for his cheeky behavior and pranks.

Seemingly, the Duke of Edinburgh's sense of humor and love for all things jocular never waned. As a matter of fact, Prince Charles revealed his sweet last words to Prince Philip before his death and it showed the Duke was a joker to the end.

In total, the documentary will feature, "more than a dozen members" of the royal family. However, Town&Country report that the Duchess of Cambridge and Duchess of Sussex will not make appearances in the film.

Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers will air on BBC One at 9pm on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. It will be available to view on BBC iPlayer shortly after airing.
