Prince Harry shows off his impression of the Queen in new documentary

This is incredible.

Prince Harry has just done the most amazing impersonation of the Queen for a new documentary about his late grandfather, and we can’t cope.

Airing on Wednesday, Prince Phillip: The Family Remembers shows unseen interviews with his children and grandchildren, and Harry took this opportunity to really show off all his skills.

Showing Harry looking through his grandad’s flight logs from a 1983 royal tour which took him to Geneva, Nairobi, Jakarta and Delhi, the Duke of Sussex said: “He was doing all the flying himself, or certainly chunks of it.

“When you’re flying, you don’t get an easy pass just for being the Duke of Edinburgh. You very much have to put in the work and prove your skill.

“But also he had an amazing privilege to get behind the controls and fly aircraft all around the world.

“I can just imagine my grandmother sitting in the back of a plane having a cup of tea, going through turbulence and going ‘Oh Philip! What are you doing?'”

The programme was originally commissioned to mark Prince Phillip’s 100th birthday, but he passed away two months shy of it.

Prince Charles also spoke about his late father, and how they had discussed plans for his big 100th birthday.

The conversations to make plans ended up being the last the father and son would have, as he died in April.

But while there were some sad moments, the royal grandchildren did recall a prank that Phillip liked to play on them.

Prince William said: “He used to take the lid off and put it in your hands… and then he’d squish your hands together to fire the mustard on the ceiling.

Princess Anne’s daughter Zara Tindall added: “I can’t remember exactly what he says but he ends up slamming your hands together… it goes all over the ceiling.”

And her brother Mark also said: “I actually think the marks are still on the ceiling.”
