In the film, Charles explained how he had developed the Prince of Wales role: "You have to make of it what you feel right. Not two", he says.

Prince William talks about wanting his father to spend more time with his grandchildren saying: "Now he's reached his seventieth year it's a ideal time to consolidate a little bit 'cause as most families would do, you are anxious 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 you know going on".

"I've never been a monarchist, but if you believe in a monarchy, then I don't see why the monarch now, or in the future, should be expected to be completely viewless and silent on everything", he told the Press Association.

Speaking in a BBC documentary to mark his 70th birthday, Prince Charles said the idea that he would continue making interventions was "nonsense". 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. "But it's a different function".

In the past, Charles has been criticised for his views on topics such as the environment or architecture, which was subsequently dubbed as meddling by critics.

However, Charles admitted "I'm not that stupid" as he was quizzed on whether this would change once he succeeds his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

He is also now the showrunner, executive producer, and writer on the upcoming CBS series "Blood & Treasure". Elmore's history includes work as a writer and co-executive producer on CBS' Limitless and FX's Justified .

Despite admitting his public campaigning will reach an end at some point, he did defend his activism, insisting: "If it's meddling to worry about the inner cities as I did 40 years ago... if that's meddling, I'm very proud of it".

"I do realize that it is a separate exercise being sovereign. So, of course, you know, I understand entirely how that should operate".

"They were disappointed. Meghan cried, I'm sure, she did cry, and they both said, 'Take care of yourself, we are really anxious about you, '" he said on ITV's "Good Morning Britain" in June. Appealing to Charles to slow down, he says: "I would like him to have more time with the children".

His son, William, said that he would like Charles to spend more time with his grandchildren.

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, also spoke of watching her husband walk Meghan down the aisle. Because when he's there, he's brilliant.

" I need hardly say that I hope, very much, that I might return before too long".
