Prince William speaks his mind about inheriting the Duchy of Cornwall.
The Duke of Cambridge is set to take over the throne after his father, Prince Charles. However, prior to that, Prince William will take over the Prince of Wales’ title and responsibilities. Prince William is expected to manage the Duchy of Cornwall Estate which at present is under Prince Charles.
The estate is comprised of livestock farms and residential and commercial properties. There are also forests, rivers, quarries and coastline within the area. The Duke of Cambridge admitted that he is not as knowledgeable as his father in farming because he only has “tiny” knowledge, but he is willing to learn.
“I know a tiny amount. I’ve got the interest and the passion. The countryside is deep in my heart,” Prince William said. “I want to learn and know more about farming, but the countryside and the way of life and the best people in the countryside is what I grew up with. I’m not a London boy.”
Prince William recognized his father’s expertise in farming because Prince Charles is in that sector and knows about it so well compared to him. The second in line to the throne added that his interest is not appearing yet, but he is positive that it will do in the future.
Prince William assured the farmers that he will continue what his father started. He also said that he will not rock the boat and will “do much the same as what my father’s doing.”
In related news, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due to visit Pakistan. They will kick off their royal tour on Monday. One netizen questioned the couple for not including Karachi on their tour. Karachi is considered Pakistan’s largest and most cosmopolitan city.
Some netizens defended the royal couple with one saying that there’s no point visiting the city because it is deserted. Another said that if the couple would visit it, they would be limited to its small posh side and questioned the point of doing so.
