The Royal Family have had a tough couple of years, particularly King Charles and Prince William.

Over the last two years, Charles and William’s roles dramatically change within the Firm as Charles was promoted to King after the death of his mother, the late Queen, in September 2022, which meant that William then went from the Duke of Cambridge to the Prince of Wales.

When Charles was the Prince of Wales, he was responsible for the Duchy of Cornwall for more than 50 years and took great interest in its success, writes The Mirror.

In ITV documentary, Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall, viewers saw Charles open up like never before – where he revealed how a comment by his eldest son about the estate reduced him to tears.

In a clip, viewers saw William talking to a second-generational farmer, Mervyn Keeling, about his private estate. William opened up about the future at the time, saying: “I’ve started to think about how I will inherit the Duchy one day and what I do with it. I think it’s really important, the family angle, I really do.”

A clip was then shown of Charles, who reflected on the conversation between his son and the farmer. He said: “When I saw it, I couldn’t believe it. I was deeply touched and moved by what he said. Frankly, it reduced me to tears. It did, really. Because, I suddenly thought, well, just hearing that from him has made the last 50 years worthwhile.”

After Queen Elizabeth died, William became the Duke of Cornwall and has taken full responsibility for the Duchy of Cornwall – and is beginning to make his own mark on it. In February this year, William revealed that there are pans in place to build homes on Duchy of Cornwall land to tackle homelessness in the South West of England.

Working with Cornish homelessness charity St Petrocs, the project will provide 24 homes in Nansledan, Newquay, with “wrap around support” for local people experiencing homelessness to create a path to a permanent home.

The development of “high quality temporary accommodation that feels like home” is due to begin in September with the first homes expected to be completed in the autumn of next year, according to a statement from the estate.

The Duchy of Cornwall is a portfolio of land, property and investments valued at more than £1 billion, which provide an income for the heir to the throne. In a newspaper interview last year, William was asked if there were plans for affordable housing on his Duchy of Cornwall land and replied: “There is. Absolutely. Social housing. You’ll see that when it’s ready.”
