Here is video of Great Britain’s Prince Charles dedicating “Dumfries House,” a stately home he has helped to save and preserve for the nation. In the course of the video, Charles is asked if he is “impatient,” and he gives a candid response about what it is like to be 64 years old and still waiting to be King – with his mother, Queeen Elizabeth II, still reigning at the age of 86: “Yes, of course I am. Um, I’ll run out of time soon. I shall have snuffed it, if I’m not careful.”
