Prince William has revealed some sad news about his relationship with his dad, Prince Charles.
In a new TV interview, Wills talks about his own father, and admits that he wished he would spend more time with his grandchildren.
In honour of Prince Charles' 70th birthday, a new BBC TV documentary called Prince, Son & Heir: Charles at 70, both of his sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, talk about how they get on with their dad.
In the show, Kate Middleton's husband admits he wants his father to spend more time with his grandchildren Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, six months.
William says, "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."
In the same TV documentary, Prince Harry also reveals he hardly saw his dad growing up and wishes he could see more of him now, especially as he is expecting his first baby with Meghan Markle next year.
In the documentary Harry says, "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. When we were kids, there were bags and bags and bags of work that the office just sent to him. We could barely even get to his desk to say goodnight to him."
But sadly it seems that Charles does spend time with Camilla's grandchildren as she also talks about his role as a grandfather in the same TV insight. She has four grandchildren from her previous relationship.
Camilla says, "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."
