The day before his death, Prince Philip spoke to his son, Prince Charles, on the phone.
It was about the celebrations of his 100th birthday - which he no longer lived to see.
London - The spring of 2021 began with a heavy loss for the British royals: Prince Philip, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II, died in April at the age of 99.
The grief among the British and their royal family was of course great.
Philip was best known and loved for his humor, with which he regularly made the Queen laugh.
Even for his own funeral, he had apparently planned a little prank beforehand and said goodbye to his family with a wink.
And on one of his last phone calls with Prince Charles, Philip is said to have made a typical joke the day before his death.
This is what Charles tells in the documentary "Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers", which can be seen on the BBC on September 22nd.
They talked about Philips 100th birthday, which he was then no longer allowed to live.
Prince Charles reveals what Prince Philip said on their last phone call
The documentary pays homage to Prince Philip, in which several members of the British royal family remember their best moments with him. As
reports, it should be one of the most personal formats with the Royals that has ever been produced. There, Prince Charles, the eldest son of the late Royal, reports on what was probably his last phone call with his father.
The day before his death, he called him to talk about the celebrations for his 100th birthday.
However, the planned celebration for the 100th birthday was probably a sensitive topic.
He is said to have shakily announced it to his father, since Philip was apparently not enthusiastic about the idea: “We're talking about your birthday.
And whether there will be a reception. "To which he replied in his typical way:" Well, I have to be alive for that, right? "

Tragically, as is well known, Prince Philip did not live to see his 100th birthday on June 10, 2021. He died on April 9th of this year. But even that, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II would probably take it with humor: At least he escaped his own unpopular birthday party. (
