When Philip met Prince Philip: Duke of Edinburgh pokes fun at Schofield over charity challenge

Prince Philip joked with Philip Schofield over a wing walking challenge the presenter said he was doing in his honour, asking: "Who's trying to get rid of you?"

The Duke of Edinburgh displayed his pithy sense of humour as part of a one-hour ITV documentary led by the This Morning presenter.

Schofield told the Duke: "I agreed to do a challenge Sir... I'm going to wing walk... For you, Sir."

Prince Philip retorted: "Are you going stand there on the wing saying 'hello folks'? I wouldn't open your mouth if I were you, in case it ends up like a balloon."

"I'd get a mouthful of bees," Schofield laughed.

When Phillip Met Prince Philip: 60 Years Of The Duke Of Edinburgh’s Award, to be aired on ITV tonight at 9pm, highlights the achievements of the Prince's training programme for young people.

It also shows footage, some of it rarely seen in public, of Philip as a young man in home video shot by Elizabeth showing their family life.

At one point in the programme, Schofield fears he will get a telling off from the Prince when he gestures for him to come over during an official event.

Instead, the Prince invites him to meet "a fellow idiot" - a man who has skydived.

"I thought I was in trouble then," Schofield laughed.

Now aged 95, the Prince has attended more than 200 official events in 2016 alone.

Many of those events have been in connection with the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, which is celebrating its 60th birthday.

Young people can work towards a bronze, silver or gold award by volunteering, playing sports, learning a skill, and going on an expedition.

The documentary also features anecdotes from the Duke's youngest son Prince Edward, his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, actress Joanna Lumley and comedian David Walliams.

It was in 1939 that Princess Elizabeth was said to have fallen for her distant cousin, when they met at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, Devon.

The dashing 18-year-old Philip caught the princess's eye as he entertained her by jumping over tennis nets. They married in 1947.

The king's official biographer, Sir John Wheeler-Bennett, recalled: "This was the man with whom Princess Elizabeth had been in love from their first meeting."

On their golden wedding anniversary in 1997, the Queen paid a touching tribute to her husband, saying: "He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years."
