William was filmed and discussed how important he thought the Duchy family perspective was and said, "I started to think about how I will inherit the Duchy one day and what I will do".

During a visit to a duchy, William said he should have brought his oldest child, Prince George.

& # 39; He would absolutely love this. He is obsessed, & William said laughing.

William talks to farmers about how important family is to the estate and how important the outdoors is to his own family.

What is the duchy?

The estate of the Duchy was founded by Edward III to provide a private income for his son and heir to the throne Edward, later known as the Black Prince, and its purpose remains the same today.

Charles took over the administration of the duchy when he was 21, after the queen's accession to the throne.

Today the estate is a private portfolio of land, financial investments and real estate, including the oval cricket ground in Kennington, South London, and 67,000 hectares of Dartmoor.

& # 39; My children are already playing on the tractors and … it is so important to go outside and let the children understand nature, & # 39; said William.

Charles's eldest son said that he & # 39; very passionate & # 39; is about farming and learning as much as possible on the Queen's estate in Sandringham.

While William is preparing for his future role, he asks farmer Mervyn Keeling if there is anything that the duchy could do better for its tenants.

Mr Keeling explained that Brexit is a major national problem.

& # 39; We met your father, he arranged for Brexit … but even they couldn't answer the questions for us, & # 39; said Mr. Keeling.

& # 39; Because nobody knows, but it was fun, & # 39; because I spoke to him afterwards and your father said he knows, and he was interested … he wants to make sure it is good for us and for the countryside. & # 39;
