Members of the Royal Family share personal tributes to the Duke of Edinburgh in a BBC One film which airs on Wednesday. Ahead of the one-hour programme, a throwback clip of Philip was posted on the Prince of Wales’s Clarence House Twitter account.
The video shows the Duke, dressed in a suit and sunglasses, on a tricycle.
A young Charles and Princess Anne are also on trikes as they ride in the grounds of a royal residence.
The Queen, wearing heels and holding a handbag, hilariously runs behind the trio.
Charles says: “One thing my father did, he was marvellous at arranging silly games.
“The fun of having young parents, there was lots of chasing around and mad things.”
The clip prompted a delighted reaction from Twitter users.
User @ohmydays18 wrote: “Ahh they had a wonderful time together.”
Twitter user @DiEnglot commented: “This is just delightful!”

The documentary was originally conceived to mark Philip’s 100th birthday in June, but the Duke died two months before his centenary.
The Queen and Philip’s children and their adult grandchildren have taken part in the tribute.
The monarch has not been interviewed for the programme but granted special access to her private cine-film collection.
The documentary makers went inside Buckingham Palace to meet the Duke’s long-serving staff and to capture his study, private office and library as they were during his seven decades of public service.
A trailer released earlier this month shows Charles say the royals were “lucky” to have had Philip for nearly 100 years.
Prince William describes his grandfather as “a huge presence” while Prince Harry says he was “unapologetically him”.
