Prince William Wants Charles To Spend More Time With Grandkids: "We Need Him There As Much As Possible"
Prince Charles is a loving grandfather to William and Kate's three children, and now that Prince Harry is going to give him another one he must be absolutely overjoyed. 69-year-old royal once admitted it's really fun spending time with little ones and, apparently, he's great at it.

In the documentary made in honor of Prince of Wales' 70th birthday, Duke of Cambridge said Charles is a wonderful grandpa, but he thinks his father works too much and wishes he spent more time with the family:
I would like him to have more time with the children. Having more time with him at home would be lovely, and being able to, you know, play around with the grandchildren. When he’s there, he’s brilliant, but we need him there as much as possible.
Dad-to-be Prince Harry agrees with his brother and says it's time for their father to take some time off and see what's important in life:
He does need to slow down. This is a man who has dinner ridiculously late at night, and then goes to his desk later that night and will fall asleep on his notes to the point where he’ll wake up with a piece of paper stuck to his face. The man never stops.
Having more time with the family is especially important for the Prince of Wales as he prepares to take over the reign from the Queen and rule Britain in the coming years. In addition, little George, Charlotte, and Louis always have a blast whenever he's around, so perhaps she should focus on being with them more.
According to Duchess Camilla, Charles knows exactly how to entertain his grandkids and they love him for it:
He reads Harry Potter and he can do all the different voices and I think children really appreciate that. He will get down on his knees and crawl about with them for hours, you know, making funny noises and laughing, and my grandchildren adore him, absolutely adore him.
George and Charlotte even came up with a fun, but respectful, a nickname for him and refer to him as "Grandpa England." They must understand how busy he is working for the country.
Hopefully, Charles listens to his sons and makes time to be with their children. We're sure he's looking forward to welcoming Harry and Meghan's baby and would hate to miss important milestones in its life.
