Prince Charles promises to be less outspoken if he becomes King

Saturday, 10 Nov, 2018

"You can't believe how fast it has grown in the last five years", Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, said.

Speaking in a BBC documentary to be aired later on Thursday, Charles dismissed as "nonsense" fears that he could continue to intervene in issues he cares about, if he becomes king.

By contrast, Charles is an outspoken campaigner on issues ranging from organic and traditional farming and wildlife conservation to herbal medicine and urban planning.

Speaking in detail about his future role as head of state, he said: "You know, I've tried to make sure whatever I've done has been non-party political, and I think it's vital to remember there's only room for one sovereign at a time, not two".

The Prince has given in-depth interviews to the documentary called "Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70" while programme makers have also been given exclusive access to follow the royal for the past 12 months as they made the show. "I'm not that stupid".

The Queen, who stands nearby along with Prince William and Prince Harry, appears not to notice her children goofing around.

The sweet snap first surfaced in the BBC One documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, which aired in the United Kingdom on Thursday night and was released by Buckingham Palace thereafter, The Telegraph reports.

Charles, who turns 70 next week, is the longest-serving heir apparent in British history.

Referring to Charles, Camilla added: "I don't think people realise how kind he is".

We should clarify that Prince Charles didn't exactly accompany Meghan down the aisle in the role of her father-she made the fearless decision to begin her walk down the aisle of St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle alone.

This story was first published on CNN.com, "Prince Harry reveals why Charles walked Meghan up the aisle". "It does seem to me insanity if we are going to bequeath this completely polluted, damaged and destroyed world to them", he said via The Daily Telegraph.

"If it's meddling to worry about the inner cities as I did 40 years ago. if that's meddling, I'm very proud of it", he said.

"So really, he was busy winning his spurs and, in a sense, that's still what has to happen I think".

Charles, who has sought to quell concerns he would be a "meddling" king, is praised in the documentary for his charitable endeavours during his many decades carving out a role. "We could barely even get to his desk to say "goodnight" to him".
