The royals share stories and insights from the Duke of Edinburgh’s 99-year life in Prince Philip: A Life, from Prince William and Prince Harry to Philip and Queen Elizabeth’s children — led by their oldest, Prince Charles — in Prince Philip: A Life. The Royal Family Remembers premieres on Discovery+ on December 16th.

Princess Beatrice, William and Harry’s cousin, prepares to speak about her beloved grandfather while William messes around with the clapboard, laughing about what “I’ve signed myself up for,” according to PEOPLE’s exclusive new trailer for the documentary.

William, 39, describes his grandfather as “the family’s heart” who has “always been a huge presence behind everything we’ve done, really.”

Meanwhile, Harry, 37, comments on Philip’s forthright personality, saying, “What you see is what you get with my grandfather.” The sincerity with which he conducts himself. He was who he was, no apologies.”

“I just asked him about his childhood,” Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Charles’s wife, says of Philip’s extraordinary life. It was completely engrossing.”

The documentary, which debuted in the United Kingdom in September, also features Charles, 73, saying of his father, “We were lucky to have him for nearly 100 years.”

It’s billed as a look at the “man behind the crown,” and it features former staffers and members of the royal family discussing Philip’s life and legacy.

The documentary, which was created to commemorate Prince Philip’s 100th birthday and feature clips from the Queen’s private film collection, includes interviews conducted both before and after his death. It also visits the Duke of Edinburgh’s study, private office, and library within Buckingham Palace.

Philip died on April 9, just two months before his 100th birthday, and his family gathered at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle for his funeral on April 17.

On Saturday, Philip and the Queen would have celebrated their 74th wedding anniversary. On Sunday, two of his granddaughters, Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall, and their families paid a quiet but moving tribute to him. August Brooksbank and Lucas Tindall, both of whom have Philip as a middle name, were baptized at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in Windsor Great Park in front of the Queen, 95, and other members of the royal family.

On December 16, Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers will premiere exclusively on Discovery+.
