Prince Charles vows he won't be a meddling monarch

Prince Charles Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Planning To Give Their Offspring A ‘Normal Upbringing!’

Speaking in a new BBC documentary, to mark his 70th birthday later this month, he says that he realises his position as heir to the throne is different to the role of being monarch, and he would stop speaking out about his passions and beliefs as he is "not that stupid". When we were kids, there were bags and bags and bags of work that the office just sent to him. "It is vital to remember there's only room for one sovereign at a time. So, of course, you know, I understand entirely how that should operate". The Prince says: "I've tried to make sure whatever I've done has been non party political. 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.

Last Saturday, November 3, 2018, will go down in Ghana's history as a memorable day for Ghana Sports as the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, embarked on a visit to James Town, close to Bukom, the cradle of Ghana boxing.

"The idea somehow that I'm going to go on in exactly the same way, if I have to succeed, is complete nonsense because the two - the two situations - are completely different", he said, according to excerpts of the documentary released ahead of its broadcast on Thursday evening.

However, the prince is unrepentant about his public campaigning over the past half century.

"As they say, "God don butta my bread" (God has blessed me)", he said, praising the city for its dynamism and energy. I mean, I always thought it was motivating.

"So, clearly I won't be able to do the same things I've done as heir".

Former cabinet minister Lord Hain, who had contact with Charles, believes he shouldn't stay silent. "But I would like a lot of people to see the lighter side of him".

'When I was a Cabinet minister I had regular interactions with the Prince of Wales and I welcomed those.

"We disagreed on hunting with hounds, but that's fine".

Those paths could include Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continuing to focus on environmental issues and support of women's issues, which was on full display during their recent global tour to Australia, Tonga, Fiji, and New Zealand. I respect his point of view, just as I respected our dialogues when I was in government'.

In the BBC documentary "Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70", Harry recalled the moment he asked his father to take on the big task for his May 19 wedding at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.
