Becoming a grandfather makes Prince Charles feel old

By Danielle Fredette,

Kate Middleton and Prince William are making Prince Charles feel old.

On BBC1's Countryfile, the 64-year old grandfather of Kate and William's future child was asked if becoming a grandfather makes him feel old.

He replied, “Of course it does, because you can’t believe, to a certain extent, that’s going to happen in your life. It’s a lovely thought and I look forward enormously to that relationship with a grandchild," reports The Telegraph.

The sex of the baby was allegedly revealed when the 31-year old Duchess of Cambridge visited the National Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby, England earlier this month. Upon receiving a teddy bear from Diane Burton, Middleton replied, "Thank you, I'll take that for my d--" and then stopped talking mid sentence, realizing what she'd done, reports US Weekly.

When asked if she was about to say 'daughter,' Middleton replied, "We're not telling."

During the BBC1 program, Charles also spoke about the environment and the need for us to protect it. He said, “We need to think about what kind of world we’re handing on to our successors, particularly our grandchildren. It should make us reflect a bit how we do things so that we don’t ruin it for them. That’s why it’s so important to work in harmony with nature rather than somehow thinking we can ignore or dominate or separate ourselves from nature,” reports The Telegraph.

Charles also went on to talk about the difficulties for farmers and the benefits of locally grown food. Watch some of the program below.
