During a visit to Dumfries House, the stately home in East Ayrshire which the Prince helped save for the nation, he joked about his reputation for pursuing projects with notorious vigour but made a poignant reference to his mortality.
He said: â€śImpatient? Me? What a thing to suggest! Yes of course I am.â€ť He added: â€śIâ€™ll run out of time soon. I shall have snuffed it if Iâ€™m not careful.â€ť
The comments, which were recorded for a film on the Clarence House website about the Princeâ€™s involvement with Dumfries House, will fuel ongoing speculation that Prince Charles, 64, is more eager than ever to take the throne after 60 years of waiting....

At any rate, Liz is well on her way to breaking Vickie's record as longest reigning British monarch. I hope she makes it. Since her mum lived past 100 she just might.

Cliff, I would point out he was unattendant and finally stole another man's wife. He is an excellent example of a person who should give the Kingship to his son.
1 Corinthians 6 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.---NASB
We hope that Elizabeth II can stay on the thrown past her 100th birthday.
"â€śHe is impatient, but when he becomes king, his activities and all the projects he most enjoys where he can make a difference, will be seriously curtailed"
To be perfectly frank I don't think the UK needs a monarch anymore. The Queen and family today ure maintained by the posh lot in society as a kind of representation of the superior types who got their money and prestige from previous generations.
The ordinary people and peasants (like me) in society are not really bothered whether Charlie or his mum live in incredible splendor and boost the tourist trade keeping drafty and expensive castles open for viewing.
Charlie then can carry on with all his hobbies he has built up and nobody really cares at street level. If they really wanted to they could register the monarchy another historic redundant unnecessary ancient monolith with no further application in society.
