Prince of Wales guest edits Countryfile to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

During the hour long episode the programme’s Royal guest muses on many aspects of rural life, from the light-hearted to the deadly serious.

In 2010 the Prince set up the Prince’s Countryside Fund which raises money to support countryside communities. In the programme he will talk about how smaller farms are under enormous economic pressure. He also visits a South London school, Carshalton Boys Sports College, where he meets Jamie Oliver and learns of the results of an initiative to get pupils to take an interest in agriculture by growing vegetables.

The regular Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury also asks the Prince, 64, whether the prospect of becoming a grandfather when the Duchess of Cambridge gives birth makes him feel old. “Of course it does to a certain degree,” he says. “Because you can't believe that suddenly that is beginning to happen in your life. "It's a lovely thought and I've looked forward enormously to that relationship with a grandchild."
