Prince Harry impersonated the Queen in a cheeky moment on last night’s BBC tribute documentary to the Duke of Edinburgh.
The Duke of Sussex, 37, showcased his best impression of his grandmother when appearing on Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers to discuss his grandfather’s love of flying.
Taking part in his first ‘family project’ since quitting royal duties and moving to the US, Harry was seen looking through flight logs from qualified pilot Philip from a 1983 trip to Africa.
The duke said: ‘He was doing all the flying himself, or certainly chunks of it. 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.
‘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?”‘

Harry also discussed how he missed his grandfather’s sense of humour, but added: ‘I miss him more for my grandmother because I know how incredibly strong she was with him there. I also know she will be OK without him.’
He added: ‘The two of them together were just the most adorable couple. To me knowing the cheekiness of him and knowing that behind what the world sees you have two individuals who were very much in love and both, from a very young age, have dedicated their life to service… that is an incredible bond between two people.’
In the programme, William revealed how the Duke of Edinburgh would get his grandchildren to hold a tube of mustard in their hands and then take the lid off when they were BBQ-ing at Balmoral.

William laughingly recalled: ‘He would squish your hands together to fire the mustard up into the ceiling.
‘He used to get into a lot of trouble with my grandmother for covering most of the places where we had lunch with mustard on the ceiling.’
His cousin, Peter Phillips, added that the marks are still there.
The programme, which aired on BBC One last night, featured all of Prince Philip’s children and adult grandchildren reminiscing about him.
Interviews were filmed before and after Prince Philip’s death in April, and were conducted separately, with Prince Harry’s tribute filmed in the US where he lives having stepped back from his royal duty. Pictured, Harry and Philip in 2014
Interviews began in early 2021 to celebrate Philip’s 100th birthday in June, but the programme became a moving tribute to the Queen’s husband after he slipped away peacefully on April 9, two months before his big day.
All of those interviewed admitted that Philip was a man of his generation and upbringing – and didn’t suffer fools gladly.
Prince Charles described how his father would watching him play football as a child and shout from the sidelines: ‘Stop scratching your backside and do something!’

But all agreed that he was a man like no other and one that has left a huge void in their lives.
William added: ‘He’s always been the heart of the family and he’s always been a huge presence behind everything we have done, really.
‘It was very much a man world’s back then, so for a man to give up his career to support a woman, albeit the Queen, was still quite a big step.’
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.
