Charles and the Queen get stuck in a traffic jam from world leaders on their way to an engagement

This is the hilarious moment that Prince Charles and the Queen got stuck in a & # 39; file & # 39; in their own palace.

The Prince of Wales was ready to be confirmed as the next head of the Commonwealth during a ceremony that was perfectly choreographed.

But the queen's efforts to get on the podium and announce her son as the next leader were frustrated by a row of 53 Commonwealth leaders.

As she asks Charles what the gap is, he can be seen by gesturing to the line in front of them, while other Royals look next to it.

Premier Theresa May can be welcomed world leaders one after the other as they stack on stage at Buckingham Palace.

Miss Campbell, 48, said afterwards: & # 39; He looks great. He does not look like his age. I told him that his mind was young. He is such an example for me. His dedication to the Commonwealth, that's great. I am very grateful. & # 39;

Charles works too hard – he has to spend more time with his grandchildren (whom he loves to crawl) reveals Prince William

Prince William wishes his work-consumed father would spend more time with his grandchildren, the documentary on the occasion of Charles's 70th birthday.

The Prince of Wales is described as a & # 39; brilliant & # 39; grandfather who will crawl on the floor for hours and make crazy noises with his little granddaughters and grandsons.

But the prince can be distracted because he is so devoted to his work – to the extent that his sons say that he sometimes falls asleep with the documents he holds on his face.

When asked if his father has time to be a grandfather on top of everything else, William responds carefully.

The Prince of Wales is described as a & # 39; brilliant & # 39; grandfather who will crawl on the floor for hours and make silly noises with his little granddaughters and grandsons

In recent years Charles would have expressed his frustration at the fact that he does not see so many of his grandchildren as the Middleton family, a claim that his assistants have always furiously rejected.

But his eldest son makes it clear that he would like more & # 39; family time & # 39; would want to have with his hard working father.

William says: & # 39; It is something I work harder on, say it that way. I think he has time for it, but I would like him to have more time with the kids.

Now he has reached his 70th year, it is a perfect time to consolidate a little bit because, as most families would do, you are concerned to have them in the neighborhood and to make sure that their health is in order – and he is the fittest man I know, but I also want him to be fit until he is 95.

So if he had more time with him at home, that would be wonderful, and could play with the grandchildren.

& # 39; Because, when he is there, he is brilliant. But we need him as much as possible. & # 39;

If there is anything that the Prince's family agrees on, then it is their desire - not that he will ever listen - so that he would slow down.

Camilla adds: "He will sit on his knees and run around with them for hours, make funny noises and laughs, and my grandchildren love him, absolutely love him. He reads Harry Potter and he can do all the different voices and I think children really appreciate that. & # 39; Aides say that Charles can not be prouder to be a grandfather.

The prince happily shows the documentary crew an arboretum that he has planted for his eldest grandchild in Birkhall, his Scottish house, that he & # 39; George & # 39; s wood & # 39; calls.

Referring to his passion for the environment and a lifelong campaign to bring the dangers of climate change to the attention, Harry reveals that his father still can not beat the drum, even when he goes with his sons are eating.

He tells his brother: & # 39; You know how frustrated he becomes. But he has done a great job, and without telling us what to do or the direction we need to take, he simply lets us learn from the nature of the work, learn from him, learn from Mama. & # 39;

The program reveals how Charles took his sons to litter when they were on holiday with him.

Harry reveals: & # 39; He is a hero for turning off lights.

& # 39; And that is something that I am obsessed with, and that is insane, because my wife is definitely going to & # 39; Well, why turn off the lights? You know it's dark & ​​# 39 ;.

& # 39; I go & # 39; We only need one light, we do not need six, and suddenly it becomes a habit, and those minor changes of habit that he is making can be done by any person. And I think that is one of the most important lessons that I have certainly felt that he has taught us. & # 39;

William agrees and adds: "I know that I now have severe OCD on light switches, which is terrible.

& # 39; He does life as he pleads. He often took the criticism into his heart when he was younger. & # 39;

If there is anything the prince's family agrees on, then it is their desire – not that he will ever listen – to slow him down.

Harry jokes: & # 39; He has to take things a bit slower, this is a man who & # 39; late in the night has been ridiculous.

& # 39; And then goes to his desk later that night and falls asleep on his notes to the point where he wakes up with a piece of paper sticking to his face. & # 39;

The Queen and Prince Charles are surrounded by guests on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in London during a star-studded concert to celebrate the Queen's 92nd birthday. Camilla says: & # 39; I think his fate will come, he has always known that it will come and I do not think that it even pushes his shoulders at all & # 39;

William agrees and says: & # 39; He has a great personal discipline. So he has – and it has often frustrated me in the past – he has a routine.

& # 39; The only way to fit all this stuff is to compartmentalize things. The man never stops.

"I mean, when we were kids, there were bags and bags and bags with work that the office had just sent. We could hardly go to his desk to say goodnight to him. & # 39;

The Duchess of Cornwall says she was trying to encourage her husband to "perk up" himself, but admits he is too driven to pay any attention.

She smiles sadly: & # 39; My father once said to me: & # 39; As you get older, you have to do one thing and that is pace yourself. And I would like to tell him that he has to get along himself, but I'm afraid that will not happen. & # 39;

Charles neatly summarizes the way his life is laid out for him, with astonishing fact.

He says: & # 39; When my mom succeeded and became a queen when grandfather died at the age of 57, I became heir to the throne at the age of four. & # 39;

And yet his wife says that it is a weight that he carries light.

Asked whether the crown is something he often thinks about, says Camilla: "No, I do not.

"I think his fate will come, he has always known that it will come, and I do not think it's all on his shoulders."

When asked if it is something that he is talking about, the Duchess replies: "Not so much, no. It's just something that's going to happen. & # 39;

Asked to give the prince a message on his birthday, his sons quickly respond.

Harry laughs: & # 39; Please eat my message sooner! I would encourage him to remain optimistic, because I think it can be very easy to become despondent and negative.

"But hopefully his children and his grandchildren and hopefully more grandchildren can come, he can get energy from the family and continue his leadership role. & # 39;

William adds: "I am very happy that he has made 70. You know that if you ask him if the job is done, that is not the case.

Above all, I want to see that his passions and interests and the things he campaigns for are fully realized for him. He has not even reached the point that his natural progression should be – that is, monarch. So you know he still has his job to do. & # 39;
