Emotional' Charles admits last 50 years were 'worthwhile' after William's sweet admission


    His comments were a direct response to hearing Prince William discuss his future plans. The Duchy of Cornwall is a private estate established by Edward III in 1337 to provide an income for the heir to the throne. The Duchy has been under the stewardship of Prince Charles, the current Duke of Cornwall, since 1969.

    He is the longest serving Duke of Cornwall in history and the year 2019 marked his 50th year in charge.

    During the 2019 ITV documentary ‘Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall’, William is filmed chatting to a second-generational farmer, Mervyn Keeling.

    The Duke of Cambridge told Mr Keeling that he had started to think about inheriting the estate from his father and what he would do with it.

    The Duke of Cornwall ensures that, as well as providing him with an income, the estate must also focus on supporting the communities who live and work there, as well as protecting the land itself for future generations.

    Prince Charles also voluntarily pays income tax on all revenue from the estate.

    William will inherit the Duchy, when his father becomes King of England.
