Prince Charles is ‘thrilled’ to become a grandad

Duke of Cornwall shares public delight at daughter-in-law Kate Middleton’s pregnancy news


It seems Prince Charles’ royal title can’t compare to the one he’ll earn next year – as grandfather!


Talking to reporters about Kate Middleton’s pregnancy, he declared, “I’m thrilled, marvellous.”

The Duke added, “It’s a very nice thought to become a grandfather in my old age. So that’s splendid.

“I’m very glad my daughter-in-law is getting better, thank goodness,” he added.

Prince Phillip is also excited about the royal baby news, with the Duke of Edinburgh’s close friend Gyles Brandeth saying, “He’s absolutely delighted.”

“Although, he told me he was a bit baffled recently when a German reporter asked him about his 18 illegitimate children. He’d meant to say 18 godchildren.”

Kate left hospital yesterday after being admitted four days ago with hyperemesis gravidarum, a servere case of morning sickness that causes persistent vomiting.

We hope you’re feeling better Kate!
