But the idea somehow that I'm going to go on exactly the same way, if I have to succeed, is complete nonsense because the two situations are completely different'. So, of course, you operate within the constitutional parameters.

"It's unsurprising that the royals are rushing to change Charles's public image as he prepares to become king, but does he really expect us to believe he won't capitalise on all the powers he's about to inherit?"

Prince William tells the programme that his father is "brilliant" with his three grandchildren, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis who all feature in an official photo placed prominently behind Charles during one of his interviews in the show.

A documentary titled "Prince, Son & Heir: Charles at 70" is set to air Thursday ahead of Charles's milestone birthday next week.

He has campaigned on issues such as the environment for decades, but says he would not do the same as monarch. I'm not that stupid, I do realise that it is a separate exercise being sovereign.

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. He's driven by this, this passion inside him to really help.

Tax on red and processed meat could save lives, says study
British pork is much loved by British public, who would not take kindly to being told to pay more for it and eat less of it. The theoretical taxes in the study would raise $172 billion globally each year, and cover around 70% of health care costs.

Charles' wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, recalled it all saying, "A lot of people, seeing my husband actually take the bride's mother by the hand to sign the registry, it's something that moved everybody". "I think people by now would have been rather fed up if I hadn't, I would have thought", he said. "I think it was a very... it was a lovely gesture".

After Meghan Markle's father Thomas announced he was unable to attend due to health concerns, Prince Harry says he asked his dad to do the honours, and he immediately said "yes".

He said: 'I don't see why the future monarch should be expected to be completely viewless and silent on everything. Appealing to Charles to slow down, he says: "I would like him to have more time with the children".

The Duke continued: "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". "We need him there as much as possible".

"There is a gulf in the style and approach to the type of work that William and Kate will increasingly do as future head of state and consort, and Harry and Meghan, who have more of a blank canvas with their roles", a source said, according to Express.
