Britain’s Prince Charles says: I won’t meddle when I am king

Britain’s Prince Charles says: I won’t meddle when I am king

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.

Charles has attracted criticism for decades over his outspoken views and his private communications with government ministers on issues close to his heart, including the environment, GM crops, sustainable agriculture, organic farming, architecture and climate change.

"I think that was very touching, sitting where I was, you couldn't hear what he said", Charles' wife, Duchess of Cornwall Camilla said.

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

During a recent visit to Ghana, the Prince of Wales spoke about how future generations will be affected by pollution, the Daily Telegraph reports.

According to an extensive profile of Prince Charles inVanity Fair, the future king and his eldest son couldn't be more different in their handling of the press-with Charles embracing attention and William being all "Thank U, Next".

USA exempts Chabahar port-related activities from its sanctions
The port of Chabahar on the Gulf of Oman - as Iran's sole Indian Ocean port - has emerged as a key feeder port to the INSTC. US Secretary of State Michael R Pompeo had said these countries have shown significant reduction in oil purchase from Iran.

The second in line to the throne says: "There are so many things I admire about my father - his work ethic, his passions. but personally I want to be my own man and take my own style, my own passions and my own interests my way, and do things slightly differently".

Prince Harry is "very grateful" for his father Charles, Prince of Wales stepping in to walk his bride Meghan, Duchess of Sussex down the aisle at their wedding in May (18).

Prince William said "when he's there, he's brilliant" but "we need him there as much as possible".

"So, there's nothing laid down, that's what makes it so interesting, challenging and of course complicated". "Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public".

The documentary features a touching picture of the prince cradling his grandson Louis, and in another photograph he is seen swinging around a little girl thought to be one of Camilla's grandchildren.

The BBC has been given exclusive access over the last 12 months to film Prince Charles, who turns 70 on 14 November.
