A new documentary celebrating the life of Prince Philip will air on BBC tomorrow night which will see several members of the Royal Family come together. Royals including Prince William and Zara Tindall will feature in the special as 'The Firm' remembers the Duke of Edinburgh, who sadly passed away in April this year.

Ahead of the documentary's release, the Metro has revealed we'll see Prince Harry playfully impersonate his grandmother the Queen during his interview. One section of the programme shows Harry looking over Philip’s flight logs from a 1983 royal tour around Geneva, Nairobi, Jakarta and Delhi.

"He was doing all the flying himself, or certainly chunks of it," Harry says, "When you’re flying, you don’t get an easy pass just for being the Duke of Edinburgh. You very much have to put in the work and prove your skill. But also he had an amazing privilege to get behind the controls and fly aircraft all around the world."

Harry continued: "I can just imagine my grandmother sitting in the back of a plane having a cup of tea, going through turbulence and going 'Oh Philip! What are you doing?'"

We wonder what Her Majesty thinks of her grandson's impression...

The documentary, which was initially commissioned to celebrate the Duke's 100th birthday, will be one of the first times Prince Harry is reunited with his family since stepping down as a senior royal with his wife Meghan Markle at the start of last year. He returned to the UK alone in April to attend his grandfather's funeral, and again in July to unveil a memorial to his late mother, Princess Diana. More recently, it was reported that Harry and Meghan have offered the Queen an olive branch, and hope to introduce her to their daughter, Lilibet, who was born in June.

Although it's unclear if Meghan will join Harry in the documentary, other royals featured include Prince Charles and Princess Anne. The documentary is being hailed as "an unrivalled portrait of a man with a unique place in royal history."

Prince Philip passed away on 9 April 2021, with his cause of death being confirmed as old age. His death came following a 28-day stay in hospital for an infection, which included a procedure for a pre-existing heart condition. However, when his death certificate was issued - certified by Sir Huw Thomas, head of the Royal medical household - it confirmed there was no specific cause aside from being elderly.

The hour-long documentary will air on 22 September at 9pm on BBC One.
