Prince Charles is opening up about the special gift he gave his grandson, Prince George, when he was born five years ago.
According to People, as part of the new documentary, “Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70”, the 69-year-old Prince of Wales spoke candidly about a dozen trees he had planted for his grandson at Birkhall, his Scottish country home.
“This is George’s wood,” the Duke of Cornwall, who rarely opens up about his grandchildren, reportedly said. “As I get older, all I really long for is to plant trees […] I hope it will be quite amusing for George, as they grow up, and he grows up.”
The eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II was reportedly joined by his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who added, “You can’t believe how much it’s grown. It was tiny when it was all planted. The next thing you know, you’re being dwarfed by it.”
With three grandchildren, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 6-months, the royal is currently expecting his fourth grandchild from his younger son, Harry, Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have yet to reveal the sex of their child, Prince Harry did express his hope that they would be having a baby girl while attending an Invictus Games cycling event in Sydney on their 16-day royal tour.
