I was nice to see that Charles has a private cinema at Clarence House. It's what all us guys want.

When Ant and Dec Met The Prince: 40 Years of The Prince's Trust ITV Documenta...

I thoroughly enjoyed the program and found it quite charming. Prince Charles' press office accomplished exactly what they wanted by portraying him as hard working yet human. Ant and Dec were a great choice ( tho I'm not familiar with them) .... Their comedy allowed Prince Charles to be funny and yet still the most revered person in the room. It was a great PR coup.

I enjoyed the program and wanted more. It was billed as 90 minutes but was only 68. (I know the commercials were removed but I still wanted my 90 minutes worth.)

I liked the intimate way they went through all the royal residences. We received an insider, closeup view to the layout. We were privileged to see the drive and roads taken, the back and side entrances, the kitchen, the courtyards and a great aerial view of the Kensington Palace.

I appreciated the videos of Charles as a baby, as a toddler and in the Navy.

It was a great video but not really a documentary.

Although I very much enjoyed the behind the scenes tours of Clarence House, Dumfries House, St. James' Palace, Llwynywermod.and Kensington Palace and wanted to see more of the rooms and houses, the documentary failed to live up to its billing.

The documentary was billed as following the Prince of Wales for a year to highlight 40 years of the Prince's Trust but it did not meet its objective.

It should have been titled, 'Behind the scene with the Prince of Wales as the Prince's Trust celebrates it 40th anniversary

They did not follow the Prince of Wales for a year.

The first meeting was May 13, 2015
Prince Charles hosts Prince's Trust Reception at St James' Palace
Prince Charles visits retailer Marks & Spencer for Prince's Trust job training.
Ant & Dec interviewing Prince Charles at Clarence House while walking and the movies.
(Prince Charles had 4 engagements that day but they only followed two.)

July 6, 2015 Monday
Prince Charles visits Prince's Trust prison training program
Prince Charles and Camilla host a reception for the Prince's Trust in the Llwynywermod garage.
Camilla says a few words to Ant & Dec before joining the reception.

September 9, 2015 Wednesday
Dinner at Dumfries House.for Prince's Trust

The sit down interview that they claim was filmed on September 10, 2015 was probably filmed on a different day. Charles had quite a bit of engagements on the 10th and the clothes from the interview do not match the clothes worn on the engagements. The interview suit is grey pinstripe. The engagements on the 10th are in a blue suit without pinstripes.

It was interesting seeing exactly what & how the Prince's Trust had helped people but 10 minutes was devoted to William & Harry and probably the same amount to Ant & Dec that was not related to the Prince's Trust so ITV owes me 42 minutes.

Ant & Dec only followed Charles for a few outings during only 4 months. They still owe me 8 months.

I actually have to agree. It was a nice enough program, but not what it was advertised as. I thought they would have followed him some more. It felt like it was alot of fillers with them sillying around. And I have no problem with them being silly, I get it, it draws viewers, just as putting William and Harry in it does. It's clever and reaches an audience that wouldn't otherwise get information about the princes trust. But I felt it was ALOT of giggling, drinking and time-eating from Ant and Dec...

I'm not sure what I felt about it - it certainly wasn't what I was expecting.

On the plus side it certainly highlighted the work the trust does and the amount of work the Prince does on its behalf. The interviews with those who have been helped by it and the film of the trust's work was good to see (especially the reactions of those trainees when they were told they had jobs).

I also agree that the fact it was presented by Ant & Dec would bring it an audience it would not otherwise get.

Having said that, Ant & Dec began to annoy me after a while. I don't think the interviews with Camilla, William and Harry added anything. All they could really say was how proud they are of the Prince (which I took for granted anyway) and I know I will get slammed for saying this but, I didn't think the parts of the interview with William where he spoke about his own experience of being a father had any place in this particular programme. I would rather have seen more interviews with those helped by the trust.

And as charming as they were, I don't think the home movies had a place in this particular programme.

Maybe Ant & Dec should have done two programmes - one about the Prince's Trust and one about the Royal Family then they could have shown the charming home movies and interviewed William about his own experiences of fatherhood to their heart's content.

There's quite a lengthy contract broadcasters must sign before Clarence House will agree to interviews.

The contract gives Clarence House the right to take part in various stages of the editing process and to pull the interview “in its entirety” if it is not satisfied with the finished package.

So Charles himself is obviously pleased with the final cut.

I'm personally not a fan of Ant and Dec but it did give the program a wider audience

Agree with Queen Camilla post #23 that we were sold short. there wasn't enough about the Trust - too much Ant and Dec (too jokey by half); W&H not concentrating on the charity work (too army, not enough Prince).

I wanted to hear more from the recipients of the Trust; I'm interested in how the Trust does its work and I wanted more Charles.

Happy to have seen the programme, but it just left me wanting something more substantial.

We would have liked more about the charity work, but we're all obviously people already interested in the topic. The interviews with William, Harry and Camilla and the home movies were more to pull in an audience that might not be interested otherwise.

This is not the first time Ant and Dec have interviewed Prince's Charles, William and Harry. They have a wide fan base amongst a certain demographic and indeed age range who have literally grown up with them in Britain. There are security concerns with showing royal residence's etc. What The Prince's Trust has achieved is incredible. It has I believe created more jobs than any government scheme. Would Prince Charles have wanted an entire documentary on himself, his work?

Ant and Dec

I liked it very much-especially the short interviews with Camilla and the Princes. The Trust seems amazing- all this from 10,000 and a dream.

I watched the programme and enjoyed it very much. I'm not usually a fan of them but I thought Ant and Dec were rather funny in it.

It was interesting to see and hear about the work of the Prince's Trust as I'm not that knowledgable about it so a lot of the things that were said about it in the programme was new news for me.

I really liked the interview with William and Harry as well.
