Prince Charles of Wales told about the last conversation with his father, Prince Philip, which took place the day before his death. The conversation was dedicated to the celebration of the anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh. During the dialogue, Prince Philip said that he still needs to live to his 100th birthday. A royal family member told about this in a new BBC documentary “Prince Philip: The Royal Family remembers,” reports the Daily Mail.
The heir to the British throne said that on April 8, he called Prince Philip by phone in Windsor and tried to talk to him about a party to celebrate his 100th birthday, which was to be held in June. Prince Charles admitted that it was not easy for him to raise this topic because he knew that his father does not like big holidays.
“We’re talking about your birthday,” Prince Charles said. After that, he repeated his words louder because of Prince Philip’s hearing impairment. “We’re talking about your birthday! And we are discussing whether there will be a reception,” he explained in a telephone conversation.
To this, the Prince of Wales admitted, his father said: “Well, I still have to live to see this, don’t I?” Prince Charles noted that he expected such a response from his father. He also added that the conversation about celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh was their last.
