Prince Charles is gearing up for granddaddy duty!

While pregnant Kate Middleton is busy visiting the seaport of Grimsby today, her father-in-law is gushing over the royal baby, clearly ecstatic over the impending arrival of the little one.

"It's a lovely thought and I look forward enormously to that relationship," he said in an interview for U.K. TV show Countryfile.

Too sweet! And we bet Prince Charles will be a lovely grandfather as well. After all, this is hardly the first time he's shared his excitement over the future heir to the throne, although he's also jokingly admitted he feels "a bit old."

"I'm thrilled," he said back in December while also adding he was "very glad" Kate was feeling better after battling morning sickness.

Safe to say we're all relieved the duchess has recovered so she can return to her royal duties (and we can return to royal bump watch!), as the expectant royal continues her trip on England's east coast. 

Kate visited the National Fishing Heritage Centre today where she greeted residents of the seaside town and played with the children. She's also set to open a new school and meet with members of the local fire and rescue service. 

Talk about a busy mama-to-be!
