Prince Charles is definitely one of the quirkier members of the Royal Family, and many of his idiosyncrasies are well-documented.
Ahead of his 70th birthday on Wednesday, his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has revealed some more of his “funny” behaviours.
She reckons not enough people know about the things he really does behind the scenes – disclosing a talent we’ve not seen him do before and what he’s really like with his grandchildren.
In an interview with the Telegraph magazine, she said: “He’s got a very good sense of humour.
“He’s very funny. He’s also a very good mimic. He rather likes acting. He rather enjoys speeches, unlike some of us. He can mimic most people. He’s very good at any accent”.
When Charles does speeches around the world, someone will give him three lines of the local language and he can instantly do an impression of the accent – which is impressive.
Who knew Charles was such a skilled mimic?
Camilla also praised Charles as a grandfather, as the grandchildren “adore him” and enjoy it very much when he makes them laugh by crawling around on the floor with them and showing them things around the garden.
In the BBC’s latest documentary on the Prince of Wales, Charles’ skills with the grandkids were clear as he was seen playing with Louis – and it was really sweet.
Camilla hinted at another adorable family photo of Prince Louis grabbing Charles’ hair – which he was laid back about and apparently didn’t mind at all.
Other members of the Royal Family have previously spoken about what a brilliant grandfather Charles is to George, Charlotte and Louis.
Prince William recently confessed that the kids love him, he only wishes Charles was around more to play with them – but the Prince of Wales is often busy with his work.
