Prince Charles's royal title can't compare to one he will earn next year – grandfather – now that Kate and his son Prince William are expecting their first child.

"I'm thrilled," he told reporters Thursday as he was boarding the HMS Belfast in London. "It's a very nice thought to become a grandfather in my old age, if I can say so."

Meanwhile, Charles says he is happy to see that Kate is recovering and out of the hospital.

"I'm very glad my daughter-in-law is getting better, thank goodness," he told reporters.
