Prince Harry praises Prince Charles for stepping up to wedding duty

Prince Charles has been spotted arriving at Lagos airport in Nigeria solo during what was expected to be a nine-day tour of West Africa by the royal couple. "So, of course, you know, I understand entirely how that should operate".

Britain's Prince Harry has praised his father, the Prince of Wales, for walking Meghan Markle down the aisle at the royal wedding in May.

"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", he said, according to excerpts of the documentary released ahead of its broadcast on Thursday evening.

Prince Charles is getting real about his grandchildren... and good for him!

The Duchess of Cornwall described in the documentary how Charles was driven by the need to help others, saying: "He feels everything inside, that's why he gets things done.

You don't say. But I always wonder what meddling is, I mean I always thought it was motivating".

The programme also features interviews with those closest to the Prince.

Beside his outspoken views, Charles faced intrigue around the acrimonious end to his marriage to first wife, Princess Diana, and hostility in some quarters to his second wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

The source added: "If you have one private office trying to manage both, things get hard".

"As you can perhaps imagine, after very almost forty years of, as it were, "painting a picture" on what was then a totally blank canvas of a garden, it all means a great deal to me now", the Prince explained.

Prince Charles and Meghan reportedly have a very strong relationship.

It's been almost six months since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said, "I do", in front of the world's media in Windsor Castle.

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

"He's pretty impatient, he wants things done by yesterday as I think everybody who works for him will tell you". I suspect quite a few of you may too have grandchildren or will do soon.

The comments, which come from a one-hour BBC documentary, "Prince, Son And Heir: Charles At 70", mark the first time he has publicly addressed concerns that he could be a meddling monarch.
