Members of the Royal Family have spoken out about their favourite memories of Prince Philip, following his death aged 99 in April. In the new documentary titled Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, the Duke of Edinburgh’s children and grandchildren shared details about an ongoing prank he did at barbecues.

In a preview from the show, the likes of Princes William and Harry share details about a mustard prank which made a “terrible” mess at family gatherings.

Prince William recalled: “One of the games he used to enjoy playing was when we used to go for family barbecues.

“Instead of like a mustard pot we’d have a mustard tube, a squeezy mustard tube.

“He used to take the lid off and put it between your hands, and then squish your hands together and fire the mustard into the ceiling.”

Zara Tindall said the prank always made a mess, while her brother Peter Philips added: “I actually think the marks are still there.”

Naga Munchetty played a clip from the documentary on her BBC Radio 5 Live show today.

She said of the prank: “Messy, messy.

“I’m not sure that would’ve gone down too well in my house because my mum did like things very neat and tidy.

“However it ran through and stuck in the minds of the children in the family.”

Later on in the show, she added: “Isn’t there a similar one you could do with eggs?

“You pretend the eggs are boiled and you smash someone’s hands together. I’m sure there is.”

The 46-year-old urged her listeners to send in details about their own family pranks.

In the documentary, William added that his grandfather’s prank used to “get him in a lot of trouble” with the Queen.

“He enjoyed those jokes, he enjoyed messing around with the children and being a grandfather,” he continued.

Prince Philip’s family said he “died peacefully” in a statement back in April.

Naga spoke with Prince Edward’s wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, on her show back in June.

She said of her father-in-law’s death: “He has left a giant-sized hole in our lives.”

On dealing with grief during the coronavirus pandemic, she added: “I think unfortunately the pandemic has slightly skewed things, inasmuch as it’s hard to spend as much time with the Queen as we would like to.

“We’ve been trying to, but of course it’s still not easy.

“I think the whole grieving process is probably likely for us to take a lot longer.”

The Naga Munchetty show airs Monday to Wednesday from 10am on BBC Radio 5 Live.
