Speaking about the project, a spokesman said that Charles "has had a very close eye on how this project has been developing", adding: "He’s thrilled that he has been able to showcase some of the charities that he feels passionately about." The BBC also released a documentary titled Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70 to mark the occasion, in which the royal spoke about becoming King one day. He acknowledged he would not be "able to do the same things I've done as heir", adding: "I think it's vital to remember there's only room for one sovereign at a time, not two. So, you can't be the same as the sovereign if you're the Prince of Wales or the heir."
