The picture was revealed in a BBC One documentary last night honouring the Duke of Edinburgh’s life. The show ‘A Tribute to HRH Duke of Edinburgh’ saw his children, Princess Anne and Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales speak fondly of growing up with Prince Philip as their father. The show also revealed for the first time a beautiful picture of The Duke of Edinburgh with his daughter Princess Anne by a BBQ with the pair cooking and talking. The touching image of father and daughter was accompanied by praise from both Anne and Charles for the amazing advice the Duke would give them growing up. 

The Princess Royal, Princess Anne led a touching tribute to her late father and explained how as she grew older the Duke of Edinburgh imparted great advice and knowledge to his children.

Princess Anne said: “As you grew older there was a lot of talking to you about things that he had done so you became aware of what else was going on and the things he had been doing.

“But there was a huge amount of encouragement to do things and quite a lot of leeway in terms of pushing your own boundaries.

“Which are probably not given to many nowadays.”

Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, also appeared in the programme and echoed the message made by Anne.

The Prince of Wales said: “He didn’t suffer fools gladly.

“So if you said anything that was in any way ambiguous he would say ‘make up yur mind!’.

“He was very good at showing you how to do things and instruct you in various things.”

Prince Philip had 'wonderful' sense of humour says Kevin Rudd

The touching documentary was aired on Friday evening following the announcement of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death.

The announcement from Buckingham Palace read: “It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen announces the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.

“Further announcements will be made in due course.

“The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”  


The statement was published on a holding web page created in memory of Prince Philip. 

An easel with the statement was placed outside of Buckingham Palace to officially announce the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. 

As a tribute to Prince Philip, all the official social media accounts of the royal households changed their pictures to a photograph of Prince Philip and will use their monograms in black as profile pictures as a mark of respect. 

Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, was born on 10th June 1921 in Corfu, Greece and died peacefully on the morning of 9th April, 2021, aged 99, at Windsor Castle.
