Prince William played a starring role in the BBC’s Prince Phillip documentary which aired yesterday (September 22) but the man himself didn’t stay in to watch it.

Instead he was spotted attending Aston Villa’s match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge while the documentary commemorating his granddad’s life aired.

The BBC’s Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers, touched upon many of the late royal’s best moments.
