Prince Charles says Prince Philip was ‘fantastic at arranging silly games’

The Prince of Wales recalls ‘how nice it is to have young parents’ and how his father, the Duke of Edinburgh, was ‘fantastic at organizing crazy games’.

In a BBC tribute program for Prince Philip, which will air on Wednesday, Prince Charles, 72, says there was “a lot of hunting and crazy things” when he was a child.

In an unusual show of unity, senior members of the royal family have come together to share memories that reveal the domestic side of the late Duke, and in a sneak preview clip shared by Clarence House today, Philip, a young Charles and Princess Anne, can be seen cycling as their aunt, Princess Margaret, chases after them.

During Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, the heir apparent of his late father said, “He was great at arranging silly games. I mean, the fun of having obviously young parents was… there was a lot of hunting and crazy stuff going on.”

The Queen was only 22 years old when she gave birth to her first son on November 14, 1948, while Prince Philip was 27.

In another preview video, shared on the royal family’s Instagram account, Anne, 71, recalls fishing with her father in Scotland.

“I’ve always said I couldn’t catch anything and he’d say, ‘Nonsense, come with me,'” she explains. “And after I cast for about half an hour, he said, ‘I see what you mean.'”

Archive footage accompanying the princess’s comments shows a young Anne trying to fish with her father.

“I used to say I couldn’t catch anything and he’d say, ‘Nonsense, come with me,'” explains Anne* (pictured). “And after I cast for about half an hour, he said, ‘I see what you mean.'”

Meanwhile, another clip captures Prince Edward as a child sitting in a rowboat with his father.

The Earl of Wessex recalls: ‘I used to go fishing with my father and I don’t remember exactly when I got the oars, but then I had to learn very quickly how to row a boat.’

Others starring in the new film include Princes William and Harry, Princess Anne’s husband, Sir Timothy Laurence, the Duchess of Cornwall, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie and Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall.

But the partners of the Duke’s grandchildren, including the Duchesses of Cambridge and Sussex, are not involved.

Earlier clips released by the BBC this week prior to the broadcast make it clear that his loss is still felt intensely.

Zara, daughter of the Princess Royal, says poignantly, “You never really prepare to lose him, because he was always there.”

The Duke of Cambridge adds: ‘He has always been hugely involved behind everything we’ve done.’

But it is his eldest son, the Prince of Wales, who sums it up most succinctly: ‘We were fortunate to have had him for nearly 100 years.’

Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. on BBC1.
