"But 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". So, of course, you operate within the constitutional parameters.

The documentary, which marks Charles' 70th birthday, features behind-the-scenes footage of the prince over the past 12 months, both at work and home.

In BBC One's documentary called Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, Prince Harry praised his father Prince Charles for stepping in and walking Meghan Markle down the aisle on their wedding day in a last-minute casting switch. If it's meddling to worry about the inner cities as I did 40 years ago and what was happening or not happening there, the conditions in which people were living.

And he vows to stop campaigning on the environment, architecture and homeopathy as king, insisting: 'I'm not that stupid'.

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. "But afterwards watching it on the television, I think it was a lovely gesture".

So, Prince Harry has revealed the one thing that really upsets his father, Prince Charles. 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.

Charles' wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall echoed Harry's sentiment.

Asked if he could continue, as king, to use his "convening power", he replies: "Well, you never know. And I would love to tell him to pace himself, but I'm afraid that's not gonna happen".

"I asked him to and I think he knew it was coming and he immediately said, 'Yes, of course, I'll do whatever Megan needs and I'm here to support you, '" Harry said. "Er, but we need him there as much as possible".

One source tells ET that 'Meghan and Harry, who want to use their platform and their profile to further their humanitarian and their charitable interests, really want to pass those same values on to their children.

"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.
