With Prince Charles' 70th birthday looming, he told John Bridcut from BBC that he wants nothing more than to plant trees.


The future king confessed that he planned dozens of trees when his grandson Prince George was born five years ago. He said:

“This is George’s wood. As I get older, all I really long for is to plant trees. I hope it will be quite amusing for George as they grow up and he grows up.”

The BBC special titled "Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70" will premiere on November 8 at 8 am on BBC One.

Instead of having a shiny new toy or gadget, the five-year-old Prince can grow with his patch of trees and keep the tradition going for years to come.

But Prince Charles isn't the only one preparing gifts for young Prince George and Prince Charlotte. The Duke of Sussex is planning a surprise too.


He is building a library of first editions for the royal tots, and one of his recent additions was the first edition of AA Milne's "Winnie The Pooh," worth $10,000."

A friend of the family allegedly told the Sun that Diana used to read bedtime stories to Prince Harries, and the tradition has stayed with him.

She said:

“One of Harry’s happiest childhood memories was being read a bedtime story by his mother. She loved all the old classics, and Harry had the brilliant idea of starting a little library of first editions for Louis, Charlotte, and George to enjoy as they get older.”

Harry initially wanted to get Lewis Caroll's "Through The Looking Glass," but settled on "Winnie The Pooh" in the end.

Prince Charles will celebrate his 70th birthday on November 14.
