Charles, 74, spent more than 70 years as heir apparent, longer than anyone else in history.Throughout his wait he has spoken out on subjects that he felt were important to the British public, such as climate change and architecture.In the interview at St James’s Palace, Anne said: “You know what you’re getting because he’s been practising for a bit, and I don’t think he’ll change. You know, he is committed to his own level of service, and that will remain true.”
