  • Prince Charles: 'Me, meddle as a king? I'm not that stupid'

The Duchess of Cornwall also paid tribute to Charles's role as a grandfather, saying her five grandchildren "absolutely adore" the prince, who reads the Harry Potter books while doing the voices of the characters. "So of course I understand entirely how that should operate".

In BBC One's documentary called Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, Prince Harry praised his father Prince Charles for stepping in and walking Meghan Markle down the aisle on their wedding day in a last-minute casting switch.

Declaring the role of sovereign and heir to be different, Prince Charles maintains he is aware of the constraints he will encounter as king, and says his behaviour will change.

Queen Elizabeth II's eldest son and heir, who turns 70 this month and winds up a tour of The Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria on Thursday, said he was pleased to be back in "Lasgidi" (Lagos).

The Prince of Wales has been championing environmental and social issues for many years and the Duchess of Cornwall said he was "pretty impatient" to get things done.

"You don't say. But I always wonder what meddling is, I mean I always thought it was motivating".

During the visit, Prince Charles discussed the world's plastic crisis and was also gifted a portrait of himself made from recycled materials.

In fact, one royal correspondent claims Charles' kids are "control freaks" about their coverage, and says that Kate and William in particular are known for purposefully not looking at a "fixed point" when having their picture taken-making it hard for photographers to get good images of them.

The source added: "If you have one private office trying to manage both, things get hard". They see him as a very serious person, which he is.

Speaking for the first - and, aides insist, last - time on a subject that has dogged much of his time as Prince of Wales he says: 'I do realise it is a separate exercise being sovereign.

"For him that's a fantastic opportunity to step up and be that support, and you know he's our father so of course he's going to be there for us. Needless to say, it is fascinating to watch new generations of children responding exactly as I had hoped, and in the same way I did".

When it became clear that Meghan wouldn't have her reclusive father to support her, Harry went to his, according to the Daily Mail.

"I do fervently pray that you'll all do your utmost to work together in the coming year to make real, substantial progress", he said.
