Princess Eugenie Opens Up About an Emotional Moment Between Prince Philip and Her Baby August

·2 min read

In an upcoming documentary in which members of the royal family pay tribute to the late Prince Philip, Princess Eugenie revealed that the Duke of Edinburgh got to meet his great-grandson, August Philip.

In the film, the princess gets emotional recalling the event, according to Hello Magazine. “I brought little August to come and meet him,” she says. “I told him that we’d named him after him. It was such a lovely moment. We were very lucky to do that.” Prince Philip passed away on April 9, 2021, just two months after little August was born.

According to Hello, the documentary features conversations not only with Philip's adult grandchildren, but also his four children: Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward.One particular remembrance that has been previewed ahead of the documentary's premiere focuses on Philip's cooking skills—Prince Charles reveals his father was quite territorial over the grill. “He 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!’” the Prince of Wales says in the film, according to Hello.

Prince William further confirms that Prince Philip was quite the grill master. “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."

The documentary, Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, airs on BBC One this Wednesday September 22. It's unknown if or when the film will air in the U.S.
