A new documentary for the BBC called Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, has released a trailer that shows just how many of members of the monarchy are eager to pay homage to the late Duke of Edinburgh. Prince Philip, who passed away this past April at the age of 99, was married to Queen Elizabeth II for 74 years, and was still active at royal events as recently as last year. The new documentary explores his roles as a father, grandfather, and stalwart of the royal family for over half a century.

In the trailer, Prince Charles looks away from the camera and appears to get emotional as he says of his father, “We were lucky to have him for nearly a hundred years.”

Elsewhere in the clip, Prince William remembers his grandfather as a “huge presence behind everything we’ve done,” while Harry, who also appears in the documentary, says of Philip, “What you see is what you got with my grandfather. He was always unapologetically him.”
