During a documentary about his Duchy, Prince Charles confessed the Duke of Cambridge’s plans to continue his work “deeply touched” him. ITV’s ‘Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall’ shows a reflective Prince William in conversation with second-generational farmer, Mervyn Keeling.
The Duke said: “I’ve started to think about how I will inherit the Duchy one day and what I do with it.
“I think it’s really important, the family angle, I really do.”
Prince Charles was then shown the footage of his son’s reflection on the importance of succession.
The heir to the throne told the documentary: “When I saw it, I couldn’t believe it, I was deeply touched and moved by what he said.
“Frankly, it reduced me to tears. It did, really.
“Because, I suddenly thought, well, just hearing that from him has made the last 50 years worthwhile.”
Prince William also spoke out openly about his relationship with his father and his role as grandfather in a documentary that marked the Prince of Wales’ 70th birthday.
During his appearance on Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, William said the Prince of Wales was a “brilliant” grandfather to his three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
On whether the Prince of Wales has time to spend with his grandchildren amid royal duties, William said: “It’s something I’m working more heavily on, put it that way.
“I think he does have time for it, but I would like him to have more time with the children.”
Charles’ eldest son explained that he wanted to ensure his father was in good health, adding that the Prince of Wales is “the fittest man” he knows.
He said: ”I think he’s… now he’s reached his 70th year it’s a perfect time to consolidate a little bit because as most families would do, you are worried about having them around and making sure their health’s okay.

“And he’s the fittest man I know, but equally I want him to be fit until he’s 95.
“So, having more time with him at home would be lovely, and being able to you know, play with the grandchildren.
“Because when he’s there, he’s brilliant. But we need him there as much as possible.”
