Charles to make a Prince’s Trust documentary with Ant & Dec

Tomorrow, Prince Charles will be making a documentary to mark the 40th anniversary of The Prince’s Trust.

The programme, being made for ITV, will be filmed at Dumfries House, where The Prince of Wales will spend the day, as The Queen becomes the longest reigning Monarch in British history. Dumfries is the stately home in Ayrshire, Scotland which Charles saved for the nation in 2007 with a £20million loan from The Prince’s Trust.

TV presenting duo Ant and Dec (Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly), who are ambassadors for the charitye will be filming with Charles for the day. The three have attended numerous engagements in the past together for The Prince’s Trust, and Ant and Dec were described as ‘avid and generous supporters of the trust’ by The Prince of Wales.

Charles’ chairty supports vulnerable young people in the UK, and was set up with the money the Prince received when leaving the Navy in 1976.

The 90-minute documentary will be shown early next year, for the 40th anniversary of the charity.
