King Charles bursts into tears after Prince William’s emotional comment about royal future

King Charles was moved to tears by a comment made by his son, Prince William , about inheritance. This emotional moment occurred during the 2019 ITV documentary, Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall, which provided viewers with an in-depth look at the vast Royal estate that Charles has transformed into a profitable business over the past 50 years.

In the documentary, William is seen conversing with farmer Mervyn Keeling about his private estate. It was during this conversation that the now Prince of Wales made a poignant remark about the future that deeply affected his father. William spoke about his future role, saying: “I’ve started to think about how I will inherit the Duchy one day and what I do with it.”

“I think it’s really important, the family angle, I really do.” A subsequent clip showed Charles expressing his reaction to his son’s words: “When I saw it, I couldn’t believe it.”, reports the Express . “I was deeply touched and moved by what he said. Frankly, it reduced me to tears. It did, really. Because, I suddenly thought, well, just hearing that from him has made the last 50 years worthwhile.”\

Royal commentator Camilla Tominey previously told The Telegraph: “The warmth which so obviously zings between father and son seems to signify a laying to rest of the ghosts of William’s childhood and any soreness he has felt towards his father after witnessing the traumatic fallout of his parents’ separation as a 10-year-old boy.”

The Duchy of Cornwall, a sprawling estate owned by the Prince of Wales, encompasses land, farms, houses, and other assets. The income generated from these properties supports the Prince of Wales, his family, and his charitable endeavors.

Traditionally, the eldest son of the reigning monarch inherits the duchy either at birth or when their parent ascends to the throne. William inherited the £1 billion Duchy of Cornwall estate and the title of Duke of Cornwall when Charles became king after Queen Elizabeth’s death in September 2022.
