THE DUKE of Sussex says his grandfather was “unapologetically him” in a trailer for a new BBC One tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh.

More than a dozen members of the royal family have offered their personal memories and reflections on Prince Philip for the hour-long programme.

Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers will air on BBC One at 9pm on Wednesday, September 22.

In a newly released trailer for the show, Prince Harry says: “What you see is what you got with my grandfather.

“He was unapologetically him.”

All of the monarch and Prince Philip’s children – the Prince of Wales, the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and the Earl of Wessex – and their adult grandchildren, the Duke of Cambridge, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, have taken part in the programme.

The Duchess of Sussex has not.

Neither the Meghan Markle, who has accused the royal family of racism in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, or the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton will appear.

The spouses of the Queen and Philip’s grandchildren will also not feature in the film.

The Queen, who has granted special access to her private cine-film collection, has also not been interviewed for the programme.

In the trailer, the Duke of Cambridge describes his grandfather as “a huge presence”.

The short trailer shows Charles, William, Harry and the Duke’s granddaughter Zara Tindall talking about Philip over a montage of family pictures and video clips.

One video shows Philip riding bicycles with his children as the Queen runs behind them and another shows him drinking from a trophy and laughing.

Zara, whose mother is Philip’s only daughter the Princess Royal, says: “You never really prepare yourself for losing him because he was always there.”

The clip ends with a quote from Philip’s eldest son Charles, who says: “We were lucky to have him for nearly a hundred years.”

The tribute will include interviews filmed both before and after Philip’s death in April.

It was originally conceived to mark the Duke’s 100th birthday in June, but the nation’s longest-serving consort died two months before his centenary.

The BBC said Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers would feature “poignant recollections, plenty of humour and numerous fresh insights into the character and legacy of this royal pioneer”.

The documentary-makers went inside Buckingham Palace to meet the Duke’s long-serving staff and to capture his study, private office and library as they were during his seven decades of public service.

The BBC added: “With special access to the Queen’s private cine-film collection, this film is an unrivalled portrait of a man with a unique place in royal history – by those who knew him best.”

The BBC said last month that it was looking at “lessons to be learned” after its coverage of Philip’s death drew a record number of complaints.

Nearly 110,000 people objected to the corporation’s decision to clear its schedules across both channels to run a series of mirrored special programmes, making it the most complained-about piece of programming in its history.

Earlier this year, the BBC also wrote to the royal family to apologise for the circumstances surrounding Diana’s famous Panorama interview in 1995.

Lord Dyson’s inquiry found the BBC covered up “deceitful behaviour” used by journalist Martin Bashir to secure his headline-making world exclusive, and that he faked bank statements.
