King Charles is keen to help his grandchildren avoid the mistakes he made, according to a royal historian.
The King has a close relationship with Prince William and Princess Kate's three children George, Charlotte and Louis.
Prince George is second in line to the throne and will one day be King.
Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are third and fourth in the Royal Family's line of succession and are expected to play important roles within the monarchy in the future.

Professor Chandrika Kaul told Channel 5's documentary The Fab Five: The King's Children that Charles wants his grandchildren to grow up in "as normal a way as possible".
Kaul said: "I think King Charles is very keen that his grandchildren don’t make the mistakes that I think he feels he made, particularly."
The historian continued: "What I think he wants to do is try and help these young grandchildren grow up in as normal a way as possible and create more fully rounded human beings who are unafraid of their emotions."
Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis have been centre stage this month at the Coronation ceremony and celebrations.
Kate and William's three children featured throughout events across the the three day celebrations.
