The Prince of Wales listened to tips and praised his own gran, the Queen Mother, over tea with the Tuesday Ladies — formed in his honour.

At the meeting in Kenfig, Wales — marking the end of a week-long tour — Charles said: “Any tips on grandparenthood?”

Eileen Joseph, 74, said: “Spoil them — enjoy it.”

He replied: “The great thing is to encourage them. Show them things to take their interest.

“My grandmother did that, she was wonderful.”

Charles — who is due to become a grandparent a week today — added: “It’s important to create a bond when they are very young.”

Wills and Kate’s baby is due to be born at St Mary’s Hospital’s private Lindo wing in Paddington, Central London.
