The Prince of Wales has confessed that he hopes the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a girl, as he described becoming a grandfather for the second time as “splendid” news.

Charles already has a grandson – Prince George – but said he would like a granddaughter.

“It’s wonderful to be a grandfather again. I’m looking forward to it – but I hope it will be a girl this time,” Charles said.

Charles appeared in good spirits when he was quizzed about the announcement the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant.

“It hasn’t arrived yet – (but) splendid, we’re very excited,” he said.
