​What happened when Phillip met Prince Philip

When TV presenter Phillip Schofield met his royal namesake for a special documentary celebrating 60 years of the Duke of Edinburgh Award, the Prince revealed his witty sense of humour. 

When Phillip Met Prince Philip: 60 Years Of The Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award will air on ITV tonight at 9pm and celebrates the achievements of the Prince's training programme for young people.

This year, Phillip Schofield is doing his part for the charity by taking part in a wing walk but as you'll see in the clip below, the Prince doesn't seem too impressed! 

"I agreed to do a challenge, Sir, for the awards themselves – I’m going to wing-walk. For you, Sir," Schofield tells the Prince.

After hearing his plans, Prince Philip jokes, "Who is trying to get rid of you?"

He adds, "Are you going to stand there on the wing and say 'hello folks'? I wouldn't open my mouth if I were you."

Watch the funny clip below:

In the hour-long special, Phillip will also explore the charity's work and interview celebrities such as Joanna Lumley and David Walliams, as well as various members of the royal family, including the Prince's son Prince Edward, Earl of Essex and Edward's wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex.

Fans of the Netflix series, The Crown, won't want to give tonight's programme a miss. The documentary will also show home footage, some of it rarely seen by the public, of Prince Philip as a young man and with his family. Fascinating viewing, we're sure! 

When Phillip met Prince Philip: 60 Years of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is on ITV tonight at 9pm.
