Britain's Prince Charles says he won't interfere in the affairs of state when he becomes king. But in an interview with the BBC, the Prince of Wales was quick to play down any concerns that he would continue to do so as king, saying "I'm not that stupid".
Of the emotional moment, Charles' wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, adds: "I think that was very touching, sitting where I was, you couldn't hear what he said".
"It's the things he does behind the scenes that people don't know about.I don't think people realise quite how kind he is".
In the documentary, Charles's immediate family paint a picture of the heir to the throne as a compassionate man who wants to help those around him, but is driven to achieve these aims. In September Charles said in an interview with GQ magazine in September that "My problem is I find there are too many things that need doing or battling on behalf of".
Asked about accusations that he had been "meddling" in public issues, he responded: "If it's meddling to worry about the inner cities as I did 40 years ago, then if that's meddling I'm proud of it".
His son, William, said that he would like Charles to spend more time with his grandchildren.
"We are delighted to have an exciting programme of activity in Abuja and Lagos which will showcase those issues close to the Prince's and the Duchess's hearts", she said.
As Charles led Meghan to Harry's side during the historic ceremony at St. George's Chapel, the prince turned to his dad and said, "Thank you, Pa". "That's what makes it so interesting, challenging, and of course, complicated".
In the BBC film "Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70", Charles, for the first time, publicly spoke about the shift to be expected once he ascends the throne - and the pride he takes in the charitable work he has been able to accomplish.
According to Us Weekly, Meghan Markle wants her future children to have a normal childhood and lifestyle or at least one that is very different than what Prince George, Princess Charlotte and 6-month-old Prince Louis have today.
