In the film Princess Eugenie revealed that the Duke of Edinburgh was able to meet his great-grandson, August Philip.

The documentary also has memories recalled by Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward.
According to Prince Charles his father, “adored barbequing and he turned that into an interesting art form. And if I ever tried to do it, he… I could never get the fire to light or something ghastly so [he’d say]: ‘Go away!’”

Prince William seconded his father’s opinion of Philips prowess with the briquettes. He says of Prince Philip, “Every barbecue that I’ve ever been on, the Duke of Edinburgh has been there cooking…we go on barbecues and there’s no chef, there’s no anyone else… he’s definitely a dab hand at the barbecue. I can safely say there’s never been a case of food poisoning in the family that’s attributed to the Duke of Edinburgh.”
