On whether the Prince of Wales has time to spend with his grandchildren amid royal duties, William said: “It’s something I’m working more heavily on, put it that way.
“I think he does have time for it, but I would like him to have more time with the children.”
The Queen’s grandson explained that he wanted to make sure his father was in good health, adding that the Prince of Wales is “the fittest man” he knows.
He said: ”I think he’s… now he’s reached his 70th year it’s a perfect time to consolidate a little bit because as most families would do, you are worried about having them around and making sure their health’s okay.
“And he’s the fittest man I know, but equally I want him to be fit until he’s 95.
“So, having more time with him at home would be lovely, and being able to you know, play with the grandchildren.
“Because when he’s there, he’s brilliant. But we need him there as much as possible.”
Prince Charles is the next in line to the throne, and at 72 is the oldest heir apparent in British history.
