In a new documentary, Prince Charles tells of what may have been his last conversation with his late father, Prince Philip.

Prince Charles (72) speaks in a new documentary about his father, Prince Philip (1921-2021), who died in April. Perhaps the last conversation between the two was about a birthday party for Philip, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday last June.

Charles explains in the documentary “Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers”, which will be broadcast on the British BBC on September 22nd, that he called Philip on April 8th, the day before the death of the Prince Consort, to talk to him about to talk about possible celebrations. That reports the “Daily Mail”.

“I knew you would say that”

“We’re talking about your birthday and whether there will be a reception,” Charles said to Philip. Philip then gave a typical answer for him: “Well, I have to be alive for that, doesn’t it?” Charles replied, “I knew you would say that.”

Prince William (39), who will also be shown, should tell a little anecdote. He and Philip once met a group of young hikers at the Balmoral Estate, the Queen’s summer residence in Scotland. “He stopped, rolled his window down and said: ‘Good morning, how are you doing?’ Philip then turned to William and just told him: “Today’s youth!”

In “Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers” numerous members of the British royal family will have their say – including Charles and William, Queen Elizabeth II (95), Princess Anne (71) and Prince Harry (37). Includes interviews recorded before and after Prince Philip’s death. The documentary was originally intended to celebrate the deceased’s 100th birthday.
