I’m not that stupid - Charles won’t ‘meddle’ when he is king

- Britain's Prince Charles has pledged not to interfere in the affairs of state when he becomes king, seeking to dispel concerns about his past activism on issues ranging from global warming to architectural preservation.

In Britain, the head of state must remain strictly neutral with respect to political matters, and Prince Charles acknowledged that he would have to operate within "constitutional parameters" upon acceding to the throne. "I'm not that stupid".

"He's pretty impatient, he wants things done by yesterday as I think everybody who works for him will tell you. I don't think people realize quite how kind he is".

Prince Charles is getting real about his grandchildren... and good for him!

"As they say, "God don butta my bread" (God has blessed me)", he said, praising the city for its dynamism and energy. "You don't say. But I always wonder what meddling is, I mean I always thought it was motivating".

According to an extensive profile of Prince Charles inVanity Fair, the future king and his eldest son couldn't be more different in their handling of the press-with Charles embracing attention and William being all "Thank U, Next".
