Prince Philip has died saddened to see the family turned into a ‘TV series’, revealed former British writer and politician Giles Brandreth, who was a personal friend of the Duke of Edinburgh.
In an interview with Good Morning Britain this Thursday, the day Philip celebrates his 100th birthday, Brandreth said the Prince, who passed away in April of this year, lamented the fact that some members of his family, specifically his son Prince Andrew, had lost their lives. Harry’s grandson gave personal interviews.
“He knew and was close to the Duke of Edinburgh. What do you think of all this?” asked the presenter. In reference to the latest developments related to the British royal family.
He replied, “I know exactly what he would have thought of all this. He was sad, he told me, that the royal family had turned into a TV series and he was very sorry about it. The interviews.”
“It’s hair [que] Nothing good came of it. I told you. “But you were the first member of the royal family to give a television interview in the 1950s for the BBC” but he replied: “It was about what I did, my work, never about me as a person.”
But the writer did not stop there and revealed the remaining conversation with Philip.
“He reminded me and said, in 1953, you won’t remember this, but after the coronation, the Queen and I went to Australia. Millions of people came and applauded the Queen, millions.

When you start to think that it’s about you, you’re in trouble. Don’t give interviews about yourself. And that was his philosophy.”
When asked if the Duke of Edinburgh would be angry that Harry and Meghan Markle named Lillibit’s daughter after the Queen, Giles replied: “I know what he would have said – ‘I try to stay away from these things. “He didn’t know what to think!”
