LONDON যখন When Prince Philip died about months ago at the age of 99, he was widely praised for his supportive role alongside Queen Elizabeth II during his reign of 0 years.
Now, it has come up that Philip had another important role in the royal family. He was the barbecue king of the family – probably proof of his Greek heritage.
“He loved barbecue and he turned it into an interesting art form,” his eldest son Prince Charles told the BBC in a tribute program that will air on Wednesday. “And if I ever try to do that he … I can never get on fire or something terrible, so (he will say): ‘Go away!'”
In part of ‘Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers’ published late Saturday, members of the royal family praised the late Duke of Edinburgh’s barbecue skills and his love of cooking between “Hairy Bikers” Sea King and Dave Myers. His favorite.
Prince William, Philip’s eldest grandson, said, “The Duke of Edinburgh used to cook at all the barbecues I had.” “He definitely didn’t have a dab hand at the barbecue … I can safely say that the family responsible for the Duke of Edinburgh never had food poisoning.”
Four of the Queen and Philip’s four children, Charles, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Prince Edward, along with more than a dozen royal family members and their adult grandchildren, including Charles’ two sons William and Prince Harry, took part in the one-hour program. Filmed before and after Philip’s death on April 9, the program was originally held in June to mark his 100th birthday.
The 955-year-old queen was not interviewed but she had special access to her personal film collection. Meghan, Harry’s wife, was not the wife of Philip’s grandchildren, including the Duchess of Sussex.
Harry, who stepped down from royal duties last year and moved to California, was given the opportunity by the Duke of Edinburgh for the first time to talk about his job in Afghanistan. Harry said his grandfather would “never investigate” but would listen to him perform two of his duties in Helmand province during the Afghanistan war.
“When he went to Afghanistan, he was very important and just said, ‘Make sure you’re coming back alive,'” Harry said. “Then when I came back, there wasn’t a deep-level discussion, more than an incident,‘ Well, you made it. How was it? ‘ He was like that. ”
“He was a very listener, he set the scene for you so you can share as much as you want, but he would never investigate,” he added.
Harry first served as a forward air controller in Afghanistan, during the 200-0-0 during, coordinating airstrikes on Taliban positions before the foreign media reported his presence and was taken home. He returned in 2012, this time as an Apache helicopter co-pilot gunner.
Charles also spoke of Philip’s dedication to the military.
“He took very seriously the fact that he was involved in three armed forces. And obviously the Navy was his main service, but he was very interested in doing everything with the other two, ”Charles said.
“He read a horrible lot and thought about it and so he certainly kept a lot of generals and others in their tracks, if you know what I mean. He always thought of a good way to do it,” he added.
