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

Prince Charles Prince of Wales Camilla Duchess of Cornwall

Charles, who turns 70 next week, is the longest-serving heir apparent in British history. William has been vocal on issues including mental health and wildlife conservation.

"I'm not that stupid", said Charles, Queen Elizabeth II's eldest son, when asked if he would continue to publicly campaign after he becomes king. "That's what makes it so interesting, challenging, and of course, complicated". 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".

One source tells ET that 'Meghan and Harry, who want to use their platform and their profile to further their humanitarian and their charitable interests, really want to pass those same values on to their children.

"I find it hard to believe that almost thirty years have passed since I first came to this city and having finally made it back here, Ladies and Gentlemen, all I can say is that "God don butta my bread!" But we need him there as much as possible".

But Charles defended his past actions, including establishing the Prince's Trust in 1976 to help disadvantaged young people, saying he had always steered clear of party politics. "You don't say. But I always wonder what meddling is, I mean I always thought it was motivating". 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'. He talks about how he won't be a "meddling monarch" when it's his time, aware of the reputation that has followed him through the years that he has allegedly tried to influence government decisions and has lobbied ministers to take up his causes. I'm not that stupid.

Asked if he could still, as king, "convene power" for good, he replied that would be a matter for ministers. "You only have to look at Shakespeare plays, "Henry V" or 'Henry IV, Part 1 and 2, ' to see the change that can take place - because if you become the sovereign, then you play the role in the way that it is expected", he said. "I think people have forgotten that the two are very different".

The documentary captures the future king in private and public, from feeding vegetable scraps to his chickens and collecting their eggs at his Highgrove home in Gloucestershire, to visiting Australia's Great Barrier reef to highlight climate change, and Caribbean islands recently devastated by a hurricane.
