Shortly after Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed Baby Sussex to the world, Prince Charles and Camilla kicked off their tour of Germany in Berlin. However, despite the future King of England's visit pertaining to social and political issues and ties between the two countries, all anyone wants to know is: How does Prince Charles feel about becoming a grandfather again?

Charles answered that burning question, all right -- in German, no less! We're impressed, Grandpa. 

  • Royal reporter Chris Ship posted a video of Charles gushing over his new grandson in German on Twitter. 

    "Of course, it is also a particular pleasure to be here back in Berlin once again, especially as the grandfather of a brand new grandson!" Charles told a crowd of well-wishers in what sounds like pretty good German. 

    So cute! That makes four grandkids for Charles. How exciting!

    Since their arrival, the couple have been showered with well-wishes and gifts from fans and dignitaries alike. Shortly after they touched down, they were gifted a teddy bear from German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

    And while Charles and Camilla were visiting an organization that supports victims of domestic violence, Camilla was given a onesie for Harry and Meghan's new baby boy.

    "As soon as we return I will deliver it to them, direct from Germany," she said. "I'm sure they will be thrilled."

  • Charles also spoke about his excitement about meeting the royal family's new addition when he returns to London.

    After being congratulated on the birth of Baby Sussex by Chancellor Angela Merkel outside the Federal Chancellery, Charles said: "We couldn't be more delighted at the news and we're looking forward to meeting the baby when we return." 

    And shortly after posing for a few photos, one royal fan called out: "Congratulations, grandfather."

  • To be fair, this isn't the first time Charles has shared his sentiments about becoming a grandfather for the fourth time.

    After it was announced that Baby Sussex was born, the royal family released a statement on Instagram, saying:

    "Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Sussex was safely delivered of a son at 0526hrs this morning. The baby weighs 7lbs 3oz. The Duke of Sussex was present for the birth. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Lady Jane Fellowes, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Earl Spencer have been informed and are delighted with the news. The Duchess’s mother, Doria Ragland, who is overjoyed by the arrival of her first grandchild, is with Their Royal Highnesses at Frogmore Cottage. Her Royal Highness and the baby are both doing well."

    Charles's comments in Berlin are much more personal, though, of course. 

    Surely, the prince will be heading straight to Frogmore Cottage once he and Camilla return from Germany -- where they'll happily deliver a onesie and brand new teddy bear to the royal family's newest addition.
