Philip’s ‘extraordinary life’ honoured by Charles before new doc airs


PRINCE Philip’s “extraordinary life” has been honoured by Charles ahead of the documentary airing on TV.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s life and work is set to be celebrated in a documentary aired this evening on BBC. Prince Charles has honoured his father’s “extraordinary life and work” in a tweet sharing four images from various time periods ahead of tonight’s documentary release.

Clarence House, the Twitter account for the future king and his wife, Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, tweeted a selection of images of the late Prince Philip ahead of the screening and encouraged royal fans to tune in.

The tweet reads: “Tonight, a new documentary celebrating the extraordinary life and work of The Duke of Edinburgh will air on BBC One.

“The documentary includes special tributes to His Royal Highness from members of the Royal Family. To watch in the UK, tune in at 9pm BST.”

The documentary will see senior members of the royal family talking about Prince Philip, who died in April this year, leaving behind his wife of more than seven decades, the Queen.
