Prince Charles shows off singing talent in new documentary

Prince Charles is known to be a talented gardener, but the heir to the throne has revealed another hidden talent, singing. During the documentary When Ant and Dec Met the Prince: 40 Years of the Prince's Trust, the father of two dazzles dinner guests, including Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster, by performing a special rendition of the classic Scottish folk song “The Bonnie Lass o’Fyvie.”

TV personalities Ant and Dec, who host Britain’s Got Talent in the UK, were invited to Charles’s Dumfries House in Scotland during the year they spent shadowing the royal for the special. The prince’s performance clearly impressed the documentary’s hosts. "He done all right didn't he?” quipped Ant, to which Dec replied: "It's a yes from me. He's through to the next round!”


The Geordie presenters secured personal interviews with Charles' nearest and dearest for the documentary, in which the grandfather to Prince George and baby Princess Charlotte also reveals he is enjoying having a grandaughter.

In an interview, Prince William also tells trust ambassadors Ant and Dec about how fatherhood has changed him and made him realise "how precious life is".

"Just because you realise how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective. The idea of not being around to see you children grow up [is horrible]," said the 33-year-old, who lost his own mother, Princess Diana, when he was only 15 years old.


The Princes' trust was set up by Prince Charles in the 1970s. The charity aims to help disadvantaged children "who are unemployed or struggling at school, to transform their lives."

At the end of the documentary Charles, 67, revealed he hopes one of his sons "might take an interest" in taking over the Prince's Trust eventually, adding: "Cause I’m probably getting past my sell by date now."
