Princess Anne remembered a hilarious childhood exchange with Prince Philip in Wednesday’s BBC documentary Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers. The documentary featured poignant recollections from the Duke of Edinburgh’s children Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward. At one point, Princess Anne recounted a brutal swipe from her father, which left her laughing aloud in the interview.

Anne, who was the Queen and Prince Philip’s only daughter, recalled: “We used to go fishing on Loch Muick.

“I used to tell him that I couldn’t catch anything, and he would say, ‘nonsense, come with me’.

“And after about a half-hour of casting, he said, ‘I see what you mean’.

“I just knew it was never going to work for me!”

Following this, Prince William recounted how the Duke of Edinburgh was the cook at every single barbecue he could remember.

Prince Harry, Prince William, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie also all appeared in the tribute.

Both Harry and William noted how the Duke of Edinburgh would enjoy it if things went amiss on royal engagements.

The Duke of Cambridge said: “My grandfather loved things when they go wrong, my grandparents loved that.

“You can imagine, they’ve lived a life where everything has to go right the whole time, and so when things go wrong, they both chuckle an awful lot.”

He continued: “Everyone else gets mortally embarrassed, they love it.”

The Duke of Sussex added: “There’s just sort of that imbalance of, there is everybody doing their absolute best to make sure, The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are coming, make sure we get everything absolutely right.

“Remember, every single year we’ve done it right, let’s keep doing that.

“Yet the two of them are going ‘I wonder if something is going to go wrong this year, how exciting.”
