In a new BBC documentary, Prince Charles reveals exactly what he said to his late father Prince Philip shortly before the patriarch’s death in April of this year, reports The Daily Mail.
Claims a day before Philip’s death Charles that he and the longest-serving royal consort in British history spoke to the Duke of Edinburgh about his plans for his 100th birthday, much to the chagrin of the Duke of Edinburgh.
“We’re talking about your birthday”, Charles is said to have said to his father in “Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers”.
“Well, I have to be alive for that, right?” Philip challenged him, only Charles replied, “I knew you would say that!”
“It is with deep sadness that Her Majesty the Queen announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,” Buckingham Palace announced on Twitter at the time.
Prince Harry was also interviewed for the documentary, telling the crew that his grandfather was “always without excuse” while also praising how much he supported his wife, the Queen.
“Out My grandmother’s view of having someone like that on her shoulder for 73 years of marriage – it couldn’t be better, ”says Harry.
Granddaughter Zara Tindall added that Prince Phillip knew towards the end that “he was getting older and absolutely hated it,” adding, “He was the worst patient in the world! But actually you never really prepare to lose him because he was always there. “
