Millions of viewers were left deeply moved as the prince turned to his father and said, "Thank you Pa", as Charles completed the walk down St George's Chapel at Windsor with Meghan on his arm.

"I think people by now would have been rather fed up if I hadn't, I would have thought," he added.

In Britain, the head of state must remain strictly neutral with respect to political matters, and Prince Charles acknowledged that he would have to operate within "constitutional parameters" upon acceding to the throne.

In the documentary, Charles's immediate family paint a picture of the heir to the throne as a compassionate man who wants to help those around him, but is driven to achieve these aims.

The documentary features interviews with his sons Prince William, who said he would like to see his father spend more time with his grandkids, and Prince Harry, who praised his father for walking Meghan down the aisle when her own father couldn't make the wedding.

"I think it is important that each generation does things a little bit differently than the previous", William told Prince, Son, Heir: Charles at 70, broadcast on BBC 1 at 9pm, Thursday 8 November.

"So, having more time with him at home would be lovely, and being able to, you know, play around with the grandchildren".

"As a teenager, I remember feeling deeply about this appallingly excessive demolition job being done on every aspect of life", Charles said in a written response to Vanity Fair magazine for an interview published this month. "Because when he's there, he's brilliant, but we need him there as much as possible".

"Effectively, that we've got to change, and we've got to adapt, and that there's a big problem coming, and I think people don't like to hear that".

On his future kingship, he said he is aware the roles of Prince of Wales and king are completely different.

Charles added that he believes the public would have expected him to make a positive contribution to civic society given his position.

"He wants to, really wants to save, he would like to save the world", she finishes.

Prince Harry is opening about the moment he asked Prince Charles to accompany Meghan Markle at the couple's Royal Wedding.

"For example, I love Victoria Beckham dresses, but I don't have the long torso to support that silhouette".
