As the future King of England, Prince Charles is kept more than busy with his official royal duties, but at the end of the day, he's still a family man through and through.
A new interview with the Prince has certainly proved as much.
Offering up a rare glimpse into his royal life, Charles has given fans and followers every reason to believe the family are stronger than ever.
And it all starts with Prince George.
The six-year-old Prince, who will turn seven in July, is top of Charles' priority list when it comes to one, very important thing.
Speaking on Britain's Classic FM, the Prince of Wales opened up about how music had inspired him throughout his life, particularly when he was a child.
"My grandmother used to play quite a bit of music, so I would hear something there," Charles said during the interview.
"But I suspect the first time I really became aware of it was being taken by my grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, to Covent Garden aged 7, I think."
He continued: "It must have been in 1956 to see the Bolshoi Ballet perform. It was their first visit to the United Kingdom and I shall never forget that incredible occasion."
The Prince was "completely inspired by it," he explained.
"Which is why it's so important, I think, for grandparents or other relations to take children at about the age of seven to experience some form of the arts in performance."
An interesting and very convenient example there! Perhaps this is what Charles has planned to celebrate his grandson's next milestone?

Later on in the two-part interview, the Prince revealed a very sweet duty he was tasked with during one of the most iconic royal events - Prince William and Catherine's wedding in 2011.
Again, it all came back to music.
Explaining that he loves testing music for different occasions, particularly weddings, the Prince shared: "I know my eldest son was quite understanding and was perfectly happy for me to suggest a few pieces for their wedding."
"I hope that gave some people pleasure, but it's rather fun having orchestras in for great occasions like that, and why not suggest a few pieces occasionally?"
What a sweet contribution!

As for his family, it seems they've certainly taken after the Prince when it comes to his passion for the arts.
Prince George is also known to be a fan of ballet, having included this in his curriculum during his first year at primary school.

George's mum Duchess Catherine is also an avid supporter of the industry, with various patronages linked to dance.
The Duchess is also a keen photographer, showcasing her talents by snapping various official portraits of her children for special events.
She also recently announced a new initiative amid the COVID-19 pandemic, asking people to take their own photographs to capture a moment in time as the unprecedented event unfolds.
Seems like this regal family are quite the multi-talented bunch!
