I watched this and found it quite heartbreaking and interesting. It was good to see another side of Princess Alice, and I have to say I have never noticed her walking behind the Royal family at the Coronation, so that was wonderful to see. It was also nice to know that Philip let her come and live with him and his family in her final years. I wonder if Andrew and Edward remember her, as they were both quite young when she was there (She died in 1969.)
After having watched this I then began to look up more about Philip's life, and discovered that his sister Princess Sophie (later Princess George of Hanover) is one of Edward's godmother's, although she died in 2001. She was the only living sibling Philip had after the death of his sister Princess Theodora in 1963. How nice of Philip to have Sophie as one of his son's godmothers. Funny that Edward went on to marry a Sophie. I also discovered that his mother is one of Princess Anne's godmothers.
