Prince Charles has raised two outstanding sons, but when it comes to being a grandparent? He's about to enter into completely new territory!

On Friday, the 64-year-old monarch met with a group of women in Kenfig, a village near Bridgend, South Wales, for some tips on how to be a grandpa once Kate Middleton and Prince William welcome the royal baby.

Per Wales Online, the ladies told Charles he should "spoil" the future heir to the throne,  "but give them back [to the parents] at the end of the day."

Kate and Will plan to take a pretty down-to-earth approach to raising their future prince or princess, but grandparents are supposed to indulge the little ones! "It's true," Charles agreed with a smile.

He was also told that he'll "tend to have more time for your grandchild than you had for your children."

"Yes, it's a different part of life," he said, adding, "The great thing is to encourage them. Show them things to take their interest. My grandmother did that, she was wonderful."

When asked whether he was looking forward to the royal baby's arrival, Charles gushed, "Oh, yes…It is very important to create a bond when they are very young."

The advising women, who meet every Tuesday, first got together to throw a party for Charles' coronation in 1969. They had been calling themselves the "Tuesday Ladies," but after meeting the prince himself, they've changed their name to "Charlie's Angels."

Before leaving Kenwig, Charles invited his angels to visit his garden at Highgrove, his home near Tetbury, Gloucestershire, telling them, "I am sure we can arrange that."

He obviously left quite an impression on the women. "He was a real Prince Charming. He was wonderful," gushed 74-year-old Eileen Joseph. "It has been like a dream come true."

"He was so lovely and relaxed. I nearly asked him if he was going to take the baby out in a pram," she added.

Hey, if William's changing diapers, we totally think grandpa Charlie is going to be taking the royal baby out for strolls!
