King Charles' Unusual Talent Revealed. The Superpowers Of "Grandpa Wales"
Queen Consort Camilla has revealed King Charles' unusual talent. Why do his grandchildren love him so much?
It is a well-known fact that King Charles has close ties with each of his five grandchildren: nine-year-old Prince George, seven-year-old Princess Charlotte, four-year-old Prince Louis (the children of Prince William and Kate Middleton), and three-year-old Archie Harrison and one-year-old Lilibet Diana (Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's children).
Camilla, the wife of King Charles, has talked about what the British monarch is like as a grandfather and what unusual talents he is hiding from the public eye.
The Unusual Talents Of King Charles
In an interview with Telegraph magazine, the Queen Consort Camilla revealed how is the King treating his five grandchildren.
Camilla said that Charles has a very good sense of humor, he's very funny and a good mimic. He can imitate people and has a very good accent.
The Queen Consort also praised her royal husband, confessing that the grandchildren "adore him" and enjoy the King's natural ability to make them laugh, which often has him crawling on the floor with them and showing them things around the garden.
King Charles Is "Grandpa Wales"
The King has previously spoken about his experience as a grandparent saying that it's a different part of his life.
Charles explained that it's important to encourage grandchildren, and show them things that will get them interested. His grandmother did that, and she was wonderful, revealed the monarch.
When Louis, the third royal grandchild, was born in 2018, Charles said that it was a great joy to have another grandchild, the only problem being that he doesn't don't know how he is going to keep up with them.
In a BBC documentary marking Charles' 70th birthday, the then Prince of Wales was seen playing with Louis. They sit on their knees and crawl around with them for hours, making funny noises and laughing, Camilla confessed.
According to the Queen Consort, Charles is exceptionally good with children and babies. He loves to make them laugh, take them out into the garden and show them things.
"Grandpa Wales", as the children of Wales call him, has a close bond with each of his grandchildren.
King Charles shares his love of nature with his grandchildren. He did something special to mark becoming a grandfather for the first time in 2013 when George was born.
The King restored a tree house at High-grove, his private residence in Gloucestershire, so his grandson can play in it in the future. The treehouse was originally built in 1989 for William's seventh birthday and was named Holyrood House after Queen Elizabeth II's official residence.
Charlotte, however, seems to hold a special place in his heart. When his first granddaughter was born in 2015, Charles experienced intense emotion, saying that he was hoping to have a granddaughter - someone to look after him when he is very old.
Even though he has spent less time with Archie and Lilibet because they live in California, the King also maintains a relationship with his youngest son's children.
The Sussex couple gave up their roles in the royal family and moved to the U.S. in March 2020. Archie was just 10 months old at the time, and Lilibet came into the world a year later.
