Prince Charles Says He'll End Campaigning Once He Is King

Prince Charles Says He'll End Campaigning Once He Is King”

In a BBC documentary celebrating his 70th birthday, the heir to the British throne says he will swerve the kind of issues that have brought him criticism in the past.

Anti-monarchy campaigners Republic said: "Charles has routinely abused his position of power, privately lobbying cabinet ministers and influencing government policy with his own political agenda".

In the documentary, Charles said he would operate within "constitutional parameters" as king.

Besides being president of The Prince's Trust and the Royal Shakespeare Company, he is also president or patron of more than 400 charitable organizations, and is particularly focused on conservation, the environment and young people.

"If it's meddling to worry about the inner cities as I did 40 years ago", he said, "if that's meddling, I'm very proud of it".

Britain's Prince Charles said he will stop meddling in issues he feels strongly about when he eventually becomes king, saying he is "not that stupid".

"I'm not that stupid", Charles said when asked if his public campaigning would continue after he succeeds his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

"He's pretty impatient, he wants things done by yesterday as I think everybody who works for him will tell you. Because when he's there, he's brilliant, but we need him there as much as possible".

Meanwhile, they say that Charles' wife Camilla (aka their favorite royal) "knows all our names, she fosters a sense that we're all in this together".

The full documentary, Prince, Son & Heir: Charles at 70 will air on BBC One on Thursday evening.

" So overall I think it was a very interesting conversation and some traditional leaders like the Ooni of Ife talked about this program on youth empowerment."

While Meghan doesn't think she can pull off a Victoria Beckham dress, she has been able to show her love for the brand during her time with Harry.

"As many as 169 people were killed in Plateau State, of which Jos is the capital, in June after Muslim Fulani herdsmen were accused of attacking members of the Berom tribe, who are mostly Christian", says The Daily Telegraph.

Meghan, 37, is said to be keen to make sure her children are not spoiled, and will even take her "kids on a subway", or the Tube.
