Prince Philip was quite the outdoor chef, his family recently revealed.
His love of barbecuing was well known and provided a way for the Duke to bonded with his children and grandchildren.
The Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, who is married to Prince Edward, spoke fondly of their relationship.
She said to The Mirror : “Cooking is something that I love talking to him about. And he loves watching cookery programmes. Hairy Bikers, I think is one of his favourites.”
Prince Wiliam added: “He would be the first person to say that when we started off he had no idea what he was doing but such is the way he is, he tackles a new challenge and learns as he does it and he’s mastered it.
“He’s definitely a dab hand at the barbeque. I can safely say there’s never been a case of food poisoning in the family that’s attributed to the Duke of Edinburgh.”

Those sentiments were echoed by his son in law Timothy Lawrence, who said: “I don’t think there are many recipes involved but he’s a brilliant BBQ cook.”
However, his cooking skills were not to be interfered with.
Prince Charles that he would often be told to “Go away!” as he often couldn’t light the barbecue to start off with.
Barbecues brought a lot of fun to the Royal Family’s lives with the Duke of Edinburgh also showing his mischievous side through practical jokes.
Prince William said: “He would squish your hands together to fire the mustard up into the ceiling.
“He used to get into a lot of trouble with my grandmother for covering most of the places where we had lunch with mustard on the ceiling.”
All the Queen’s children and their adult grandchildren took part in the long hour BBC documentary which paid tribute to Prince Philip.
During Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers , a film crew was given permission to go inside Buckingham palace and granted access to the Queen’s private film collection.
The documentary was filmed before and after his death and was originally intended to mark Prince Philips one-hundredth birthday.
The Duke died on April 9, two months before his birthday.

The Queen was not interviewed herself for the documentary but many of the home video clips show a different side to the Queen that the public may not have seen before.
One clip shows The Queen approaching Philip by the barbecue to let him know that the salad is ready whilst they are outside at what appears to be Balmoral.
The Prince’s other pastimes were also shown in the documentary, in particular, his love of wildlife and conservation, highlighting how instrumental he was in setting up the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and giving it global recognition.
The documentary was shown on BBC last Wednesday and is available to watch on iPlayer.
