Prince Charles showed that he is like any other doting grandfather after the first time portraits of him and all his grandchildren were released last week. And on Sunday, royal fans were in for a different party than even more family pictures that capture Charles and Prince Louis"close binding exclusively in Sunday Times Magazine. Taken by photographer Chris Jackson, images included one of Charles cuddling a smiling Louis in Clarence House, and another candid snapshot of Charles – lovingly known for his grandchildren as Grandpa Wales – with his nose snapped by Louis during family photography.

In the Sunday Times interview, the famous photographer Chris thought that he was under his photography, surrounded by his grandchildren and children. He was happiest. "It was a wonderful chaos with the kids," he said. "He is a very hands-free grandfather. He held his hands George and Charlotte, and borders Louis up and down for a long time. George was very fond of the Prince's knee. They have a good relationship that is a bit more established, because George is a bit older. "

Charles's strong bond with his grandchildren was touched in the BBC documentary, Prince, Son and Heir: Charles of 70, which was aired earlier this month. Prince William described his father as "brilliant" with his children – even though he wanted him to spend some more time with them. "He's the smartest man I know, but I want him to fit until he's 95," said William. "Having more time with him at home would be wonderful, and you can know playing with the grandchildren. For when he is there he is brilliant, but we need him as much as possible."

Duchess of Cornwall also revealed how much her grandson loves Charles as well. The couple has nine grandchildren and grandchildren between them. "He gets down on my knees and crawls with them for hours, you know you're making fun sounds and laughing and my grandchildren love him, love him absolutely," she shared. "He reads Harry Potter and he can make all the different voices and I think children really appreciate it."
