Not only are Ant and Dec long-term ambassadors for The Prince’s Trust but they’re also of a similar vintage. The duo recently turned 40 while the Trust celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. So it’s appropriate that they should see the charity’s work at close quarters and accompany the Prince of Wales on a number of engagements to learn why he set it up and what drives him to stay involved. One can only imagine the kind of contract he insisted they signed for such access. They visit HM Prison Parc to see how young offenders are being helped, and dine at Dumfries House where trainees help serve dinner to the royals and their guests.
But this is not just a plug for the charity, no matter how admirable its achievements are. They also hear revealing and funny stories about the Prince from his sons, William and Harry, as well as from his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall.
Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are granted an insight into the work of the Prince's Trust as they accompany Prince Charles on a number of engagements, as well as meeting people who have benefited directly from the charity. The duo hear anecdotes from his days in the Royal Navy and his life as a grandfather, and also speak to those closest to the prince, including the Duchess of Cornwall and his sons William and Harry. Plus, Ant and Dec pay an emotional visit to the set of Byker Grove, the programme that launched their TV career, meeting up with fellow Geordie - and Prince's Trust ambassador - Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
