Prince, Son and Heir – Charles at 70, showed his keen environmentalism and in the programme he also denied he would be a ‘meddling’ monarch when he succeeds to the throne.
But another more unusual part of the documentary had viewers in stitches as the Prince of Wales walks around Dumfries House farm and gobbles at a group of turkeys.
Prince Charles has a slightly unusual habit of talking to his Turkeys. In the documentary he said the turkeys ‘make him laugh so much’
He said: ‘We wanted to have an education farm to try and see if we could make the most of reconnecting people to where their foods comes from.
‘I love these turkeys, they make me laugh so much.’
He then gobbles at the birds, cracking up social media users.
One said: ‘Prince Charles doing an impression of a Turkey was everything #PrinceCharles #PrinceSonandHeir’
Another said: ‘Prince Charles gobbling at a Turkey has GOT to be the best thing ever seen on telly, what a man.’
Prince Charles has a fondness for the Turkeys at the farm at Dumfries House. There are also a number of other rare breeds at the property

In another hilarious clip Prince Charles and the Queen got stuck in a ‘traffic jam’ in their own palace.

But the Queen’s efforts to get to the stage and announce her son as the next leader were frustrated by a queue of 53 Commonwealth leaders.
