Prince Charles at 70: I won't be a meddling monarch

- Britain's Prince Charles has pledged not to interfere in the affairs of state when he becomes king, seeking to dispel concerns about his past activism on issues ranging from global warming to architectural preservation. In the BBC documentary, he said that he will operate within "constitutional parameters" when he becomes monarch, which is a "completely different" role to being the Prince of Wales, as the heir in Britain is known.

Speaking in the new documentary Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, Prince Harry spoke about his father's concer surrounding climate change and environmental pollution. "I'm not that stupid".

"I do realize that it is a separate exercise being sovereign".

Camilla told the BBC that his drive to get things done spurred his activism.

- Taking tea with Osei Tutu II, the Asantahene or king of Ghana's Asante people, and a reception with paramount rulers is all in a day's work for the Prince of Wales. You've gotta say thank you.

Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70 will be shown in the United Kingdom on BBC One on Thursday, November 8th 2018 at 9 pm.

Le’Veon Bell may not report by deadline after learning new information
Bell, 26, hasn't played in a single game this season after he was hit with the franchise tag for the second year in a row. Le'Veon Bell has still not reported to the Steelers to sign his franchise tender for the 2018 season.

His son, William, said that he would like Charles to spend more time with his grandchildren. "He's driven by this, this passion inside him to really help", she said.

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".

"So, there's nothing laid down, that's what makes it so interesting, challenging and of course complicated".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are expecting their very first addition to the family, and now, a report claims the Royals are planning to give their offspring a normal upbringing - at least as much as possible!

Charles, who celebrates his 70th birthday on 14 November with a banquet at Buckingham Palace hosted by the Queen and attended by guests including European royalty, maintained he has always strived to "make sure whatever I've done has been non-party political".

The world was stunned when Prince Charles, 69, walked Meghan Markle, 37, down the aisle at her May 2018 royal wedding and not her own father, Thomas Markle, 74.
