Host Phillip Schofield spends time with HRH The Duke of Edinburgh
When Phillip Met Prince Philip: 60 Years of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is a unique documentary which sees Phillip Schofield spending time with HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and talking to him in the 60th Anniversary of Award.
Over a year Phillip explores the work of the Charity through exclusive access to major celebratory events, as well as speaking to members of the Royal Family. Schofield meets with The Duke of Edinburgh as he reflects on the award and talks about its positive impact on the young people who take part, and he also speaks with The Earl and Countess of Wessex about the global reach of the DofE as well as their own roles in the continuing success of the Charity.
Phillip looks back at the early days of the DofE and gains a close perspective on the work and the dedicated effort the Charity makes in supporting the development of young people all over the world. Designed to encourage personal discovery and self-reliance, since 1956, millions of young people spanning 141 countries and territories have done their DofE; in the UK alone, over 2.5 million Awards have been achieved by young people.
Additionally, to mark its 60th year, The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award has created a one-time-only Diamond Challenge and thrown its doors wide open to applicants of all ages, whether newcomers or former participants, encouraging them to carry out their own personal ‘challenge’. In the documentary Phillip Schofield takes on a challenge of his own and completes a dramatic wing walk.
