Prince Charles 'thrilled' by prospect of becoming a grandfather

The Prince of Wales has said he is "thrilled" by the prospect of becoming a grandfather, after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced this week they were expecting their first child.

Prince Charles also joked: "How do you know I'm not on a radio station?", after presenters of an Australian radio show prank called their way into a conversation with Kate's hospital nurse this week.

Earlier today, Kate left the King Edward VII hospital in central London after spending four days being treated for acute morning sickness.
