Last week the BBC’s ‘Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers’, saw more than a dozen members of the Firm pay tribute to the late Duke of Edinburgh. The programme was initially conceived to mark the Duke’s 100th birthday on June 10, however Philip passed away two months earlier. Harry, whose relationship with the rest of the Royal Family has been under strain in recent years, paid tribute to his grandfather in the documentary.
Harry and his wife Meghan Markle sent shockwaves through the Firm the the world when they stepped down as senior royals last year.
They have since moved to the US and settled in Meghan’s home state of California.
Over the past year, they have been outspoken about their time inside Palace walls, most notably in their two hour CBS interview with Oprah Winfrey, in which they made a number of shocking allegations, including those around race and mental health.
Pod Save The Queen is hosted by Ann Gripper and features Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers.

Mr Myers suggested that Harry, who has now lived in California for a year and a half, was inflecting the ends of his sentences and had an American twang in the Prince Philip documentary.
Mr Myers said: “One thing I will say, which is not having a dig, it’s just a funny observation.
“I want to know what people think about Harry’s accent when they watch the documentary.
“I found his diction extraordinary.
“He’s raising his voice as if he has an American twang.
“It’s called intonation, I think ‒ quite interesting.
“I’m interested in the court of public opinion on it.”
Interviews were reportedly filmed before and after Philip’s death and conducted separately, with Harry paying tribute in the US where he lives with Meghan and their two children, Archie, two, and three-month-old Lilibet.

Since Harry and Meghan’s departure from royal life a number of their ventures have allegedly widened the rift between them and the rest of the family.
The couple signed multi-million pound production deals with Netflix and Spotify while Harry announced an upcoming memoir, where he promised to give an “accurate and wholly truthful” account of his life, writing as “the man he has become.”
Yet in the BBC documentary commemorating Prince Philip, Harry hailed the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as “the most adorable couple”.
He said: “More than anything I miss his sense of humour.
“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 okay without him.”
Prince Harry added: “From my grandmother’s perspective, to have someone like that on your shoulder for 73 years of marriage doesn’t get better than that.
“The two of them together were just the most adorable couple.
“I don’t know if anyone’s described them as adorable but to me, knowing the cheekiness of him, and knowing that behind what the world sees, you have two individuals who are very much in love and at a very young age dedicated their life to service.”
Harry and Meghan were on the cover of the iconic Time magazine two weeks ago, and listed among the world’s 100 most influential people.
This weekend, they visited New York to participate in Global Citizen Live, which aims to promote equal access to the coronavirus vaccine.
