Princess Eugenie has revealed the moment her son got to meet his great-grandfather Prince Philip just days before he died.

Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank welcomed their son, August Philip Hawke Brooksbank, on 9 February 2021.

Many people believed that Philip did not get to meet his great-grandson, but a new documentary has shed light on the Duke of Edinburgh's final days.

Senior members of the royal family have joined forces to look back at the duke's life in Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, which will be broadcast on the BBC on Wednesday.

Philip, who died two months before his 100th birthday, was close to grand-daughter Eugenie and the princess has shared how he gave her a touching bespoke handmade painting he had done of a bunch of flowers as a wedding present.

"It was so nice, it's now sitting in my house in London and I'm so proud of it, you know?" she said.

Reflecting on the moment she introduced her son to his namesake, Princess Eugenie: "I brought little August to come and meet him. I told him that we'd named him after him. It was such a lovely moment. We were very lucky to do that."

Another key moment included in the programme is Prince Charles’ last words to Prince Philip before he died, along with Prince Philip’s response.

Charles rang the Duke of Edinburgh on April 8 to ask him about what he’d like to do for his 100th birthday.

Apparently, he had to approach the topic carefully, as Philip had made it known he didn’t want to discuss it.

Charles said to his dad: “'We're talking about your birthday.”

After Philip didn’t hear, he said again: “We're talking about your birthday! And whether there's going to be reception!”

But what Philip said back will likely be something he remembers for the rest of his life.

In a poignant moment, the Duke replied: “Well, I've got to be alive for it, haven't I?”

Little did Charles know, that was likely to be the last time he ever spoke to his dad.

Rounding off the exchange, he laughed: 'I knew you'd say that!'

Another memory that will be revealed in the programme is one from Prince William.

He will tell the story of when he and Philip were driving one day. William said: “He stopped and wound down his window and said, 'Good morning. How are you getting on?' To which the smallest young chap at the back turned around and effectively said, 'Jog on Grandpa!'”

But even funnier was Prince Philip’s response. He said to William: “The youth of today!”

But one of the most anticipated elements of the documentary is the much-awaited reunion between Prince Harry and his brother.

But it won’t be in person - Harry will speak in the documentary from California.

Harry recalled: “From my grandmother's perspective, to have someone like that on your shoulder for 73 years of marriage. It doesn't get better than that.”

Harry, using a cricket analogy, said Philip, who died two months before his 100th birthday, had a "fantastic innings", scored a six, but "didn't actually wanna get to a century".

He spoke of the Queen's bond with the duke, but said he knew the monarch would be "OK" without him.

"More than anything I miss his humour but I miss him, I miss him more for my grandmother because I know how incredibly strong she was with him there. I also know that she's gonna be ok without him," Harry said.

He described the Queen and Philip as "the most adorable couple", who were very much in love.
